Default Stopping Savella and trying CBD oil!

I started seeing an integrative medicine doctor who I really like. I'm off Warfarin so I can take CBD oil. I was going to take both together but I got dizzy last night so my new doctor said to stop the Savella. He doesn't like it at all. I was only on 25 mg and was going to try to increase it because my pdoc thought it was helping. She said I know my body so if I want to stop, do it! My gut feeling is that meds aren't for me at all!

The CBD oil is making me tired so I'm going to take it only at night for now. It's my second day of taking it so I don't know if it's helping me for pain yet.

Has anyone tried CBD oil? The Dr. said it helps half of his patients who have tried it. I sure hope I'm in the half it helps!

Rainbow, I hope this provides some relief for you. Fingers crossed!!

Unfortunately, my legs hurt and I can't sleep! Took Tylenol and just now Melatonin. Maybe I need that horrible Savella! ☹️
