When my aunt was on Savella it gave her high blood pressure, which is something I am a little concerned about. It runs in my family and I am on The Pill for endometriosis, which can cause high blood pressure too.
So far, everything on the Savella front is A-OK. I'll report on things again on Friday for week 2.
