No, Savella does not, even in the inactive ingredients. If they do use it in some form, they have to make this known due to the problems presented with allergies, such as yours.

However, I did double check just to be certain and it is not listed as a component.


Is there anything else I can help you with?

For the future reference of anyone else, here's a list of the inactive ingredients:

dibasic calcium phosphate, povidone, carboxymethylcellulose calcium, colloidal silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate, and talc.

Is Savalla about the same as Lyrica and Cymbalta; I have severe fibromyalgia and unable to take Lyrica or Cymbalta.

I did not have any allergies. I started on Savella for fibro, only took a couple of pills before quitting, and was sick as a dog for 3 months. My white blood cell tests or whatever were even off. It was horrible.

Long after that I was subscribed a Sulfa drug, and had a severe allergy attack. So I can't be sure, but I think the Savella did something to my immune system and now I'm allergic to many things (but Sulfa the only one that I'm severely allergic to). I've had weird reaction down my arm (icy sharp stabling pains that lasted for a couple of hours) to one (only one of a few) IV and my first try at accupuncture also.

Its too bad because Savella has really good results for fibro (except it makes alot of people nausious I guess). Lyrica and others are very different, and don't help for me.
