I have been having the same issues also and yeast infections. When I need to pee I strain and have to think of a waterfall or something to get started then lean forward to finish. I dont know if it is due to the weight I have gained or being in menopause. I also am looking into seeing a urologist. (spelling)
Has anyone taken this med? And if so how did it go for you? I will be starting this med tonight. I already take Neurotin. I am told that this is an older antidepressent. I am biploar and cant take most antidepreesents due to it causing me to become manic. I told specialist that and she said that there are others out there that are older medications for depression. I know everyone is different and has different experiences but it would be nice to hear from some that have taken this drug. I was also given injections in the trigger points of upper back. Anyone have that done? Was not able to take Savella and it was continually denied by medicaid. Waiting to see if I will be approved for a tens unit..ha ha. I am anxious about how this new med..Nortriptylin will react with the rest of all the meds I take. Oh the mgs on the new med is 10
I already knew what the Diclofenac was for. I do not have arthritis I have fibro. Even though annettes suggestion about taking one at a time was a good one etc. I was not told to do that by the pain specialist. I do appreciate others suggestions thoughts etc otherwise I wouldnt come here. But usually when a see a post for Dr P I leave it alone because its directed to him not me. Yes I know all about the Savella and all about pre authorization...been there done that.
Hi xperky thanks for your response. By the way I love your ending....with compassion. How beautiful and appropriate! No I dont have arthritis but I do have fibro. Today is my first day of Savella....1/2 tab. Today is my second day of the diclofenac. So we will see and yes I too thought of the idea of keeping notes on both. I will keep ya'll posted. Hopefully I will get some relief out of something.
(((((gentle hugs to you)))) also with compassion back to you and a peaceful pain free day!
Thanks for your response but it was for the doc. Yes Savella is new. Iam on medicaid and only pay a co-pay. The doc ...pain specialist gave me samples of the Savella till it would go through. My regular primary wasnt able to get Savella to go through. This doc..pain specialist can but he has to jump through all the right hoops to get it. I will do what my doctors say only.
My primary doc put me on neurotin a while back. She regionally wanted to put me on savella but it wouldnt go through ....I have medicaid only. So she put me on neurotin. The neurotin helped some but not alot so I asked if she would up me on it. Im taking 600mgs three times a day. She sent me to see a pain specialist and he put me on Diclofenac and gave me some samples of Savella. Have you heard of the Diclofenac and what are your thoughts on it? I have also heard that the savella can be kind of a rough drug to take due to the side effects. Id like to know all your thoughts on this.Thanks.
