First of all, I'm not going to be getting graphic on the subject. Let's just say it's just not my style.
I cannot even talk about the topic openly with my therapist. And I'm paying her by the hour! But as a depression sufferer the loss of intimacy has never been an issue for me.
Usually, after starting a new medication I might be a little tired but I usually bounce back to my old self in a few days or a week.
Things are different with the Savella. Let's just say that the faucet is completely off. I cannot even work up the effort to hug or kiss my husband in fear he's going to want more.
So, here I am actually feeling stress free in over 11 years. My rashes are finally starting to clear up. I'm not grinding my teeth during the day. And I may need to stop taking my medication because it's causing problems in my marriage. Ugh!
When Marcus was younger I would sign him up for the Summer Reading Program at our local public library. He loved the chance to win prizes but I loved that he was continuing to read.
Kids, in the North Las Vegas area can sign up for the Summer Reading Club at the North Las Vegas Library or the Alexander Library. The program runs from June 9 to July 31, 2011.

I really didn't expect such an immediate change after taking the first dosage of Savella . I took 12.5 mgs on Friday night. When I woke up I noticed I was experiencing the usual stress disorders...tingling in the mouth, racing thoughts, involuntary hand and finger shakes. The throbbing, aching pain seems to be dulled. I did suffer a slight headache which cleared up by afternoon.
As with many of my pain and depression medications I must drink lots of water and various fruits daily. But shouldn't that just be part of everyone regiment?
