Savilla

Psychiatrist wants me on levomilnacipan 40 mg for depression rheumatologist Wants me on Savilla 50mg both are insistant that I use the drug they prescribe. Can I take both? I know levomilnacipan is one part of the Savilla compound is there another part more for fibromalga? ## Hello, Lori! How are you? I'd suggest asking them what they feel the difference is, because from what I've found one is derived from the other, so they are very similar and treat the same things. They even risk the same side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, headache and weight changes. Is your psych only considering your depression? Perhaps one of them works better for both it and fibro.
