Savella and Prozac

Posted by LongRoad on August 18, 2009, at 14:28:40

I've been on Savella for a couple months now and although depression is better, anxiety and impatience have both gone up a lot.

My doc is suggesting a lowering of Savella dose and adding Prozac. Has anyone had experience with this?

I had to stop taking Savella because increased irritability. It got to the point of yelling at my kids and husband for the most trivial things.
I does help with depression but I think the norephinephrine was a little too much for me.

Same here, and I was only on 1/4 of a cap twice a day.

By "this", I mean the mixing of BOTH Savella and Prozac at the same time. Thanks.

It says in the product literature of Savella Titration pack that Savella is not affected by Prozac so you could mix them, but perhaps another medication would be a better choice to mix?
