Took 100mgs of savella 3 hours ago! My doctor said nothing about "working up" to this dose! I'm scared i took too much for my first dose..
Don't have any symptoms of overdose yet. Am I going to be ok? Should I do anything? Ughhh...sigh...feeling stupid right now:(

First i was perscribed cymbalta for fibromyalgia and nerve pain in my back and feet. The side effects were horrible. My blood sugar level went way up into the high 200's. I had never in my life had high blood sugar . So they weaned me off, and my level returned back to my normal 70's and 80's. Next they put me on Savella, and i was told that it was not in the same family as Cymbalta.Well i took the Savella for 2 months, and my blood sugar went very high again, and it will not go down. Now i have diabetes and have to take 4 metforin everday.. Needless to say, the Savella did something bad to me . It has totally ruined my life. Has anyone else had this happen to them?
