The doctor recently changed my medicine from Cymbalta to Savella. Savella worked for the pain from fibromyalgia but the excessive sweating, constantly feeling drunk, and horrific nightmares has caused my doctor to change the meds again. Anyone else experience nightmares while taking Savella?

Savella contains the active ingredient Milnacipran, which is an SNRI and really, any medication that works on brain chemicals may cause you to experience nightmares, or other mental issues.

What medication are you taking now?

Thanks for the information. Right now I am not taking anything but an occasional Hydrocodone for pain. Weaning off of Savella was one I the most painful things I have ever done. Constant pain is my companion. I do take the new drug Viibyrd for depression.
