What should I do if I miss a dose of Savella?

If you miss a dose of Savella (milnacipran), an antidepressant prescribed to treat fibromyalgia, think first about when you're supposed to take your next dose. If it is almost time for your next pill, skip the one you forgot and take the next dose at its scheduled time. If your next dose isn't for a while, it's fine to take the one you missed. Do not take two doses at a time.
