The new drug, Savella has recently been approved by the FDA.
It is referred to in this thread as milnacipran HCl.

I have not heard much about it yet. But I expect to at the conference in late May this year 09.

It has slightly more norepi effects than Cymbalta and is a mix of serotonin and norepi acting. I would watch for elevated blood pressure effects with it.
