What other drugs will affect Savella?
Before using Savella, tell your doctor if you regularly use other medicines that make you sleepy (such as cold or allergy medicine, sedatives, narcotic pain medicine, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, and medicine for seizures, depression, or anxiety). They can add to sleepiness caused by Savella.
Ask your doctor before taking any medicine for pain, arthritis, fever, or swelling. This includes aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn), diclofenac (Voltaren), indomethacin, piroxicam (Feldene), nabumetone (Relafen), etodolac (Lodine), and others. Taking any of these drugs with Savella may cause you to bruise or bleed easily.
Tell your doctor about all other medications you use, especially:
a blood thinner such as warfarin (Coumadin);
clonidine (Catapres, Clorpres);
a diuretic (water pill);
digoxin (digitalis, Lanoxin);
lithium (Lithobid, Eskalith);
tryptophan (sometimes called L-tryptophan);
medicine to treat a psychiatric disorder;
medicines to treat Parkinson's disease, restless leg syndrome, or pituitary gland tumor (prolactinoma);
migraine headache medicine such as almotriptan (Axert), frovatriptan (Frova), naratriptan (Amerge), rizatriptan (Maxalt), sumatriptan (Imitrex, Treximet), or zolmitriptan (Zomig); or
an antidepressant such as citalopram (Celexa), duloxetine (Cymbalta), desvenlafaxine (Pristiq), fluoxetine (Prozac, Sarafem, Symbyax), paroxetine (Paxil), sertraline (Zoloft), or venlafaxine (Effexor).
This list is not complete and other drugs may interact with Savella. Tell your doctor about all medications you use. This includes prescription, over-the-counter, vitamin, and herbal products. Do not start a new medication without telling your doctor.
