Lyrica in Mexico
3 Replies RSS
Hi, I've learned a lot from other people's experiences here on medschat over the last few years and wanted to share my experiences with something that comes up on here from time to time, and I hope that I can somehow help out somebody out there wondering. I live in socal (south of LA), and have been taking Lyrica (pregabalin) for fibromyalgia and migraines for about six or seven years now, and it would not be exaggerating to say that it has really changed my life. It's an incredible product, and the only thing I've tried after ten or fifteen years of doctors trying me on everything and mosf things they tried either not doing anything or else just making things worse. With no generic alternative available in the US, I have to pay $217 every time I pick up a refill (28 pil...

lyrica class action lawsuit
77 Replies RSS
If you have had an adverse reaction to Lyrica, please contact a law firm. I just called mine and gave them my basic information, and they will be having a lawyer contact us. This drug is dangerous, deadly, and should be pulled from the market. Amomg all the usual issues, today i noticed a new one had been added. For males, sperm motility can be affected and children created by parents using Lyrica, there is the possibility of birth defects. Please call and at least get on record with this firm. The more of us who call and tell our stories, the more likely it is that the drug company is going to have to cover our medical expenses, pain and suffering, etc. ## Who is the attorney and in which state? ## Hi are you in Australia or America I to would add my name and case if I am able to conta...

WHAT CAUSES WEIGHT GAIN IN LYRICA
103 Replies RSS
I HAVE GAINED 27 POUNDS IN 3 MONTHS. WHAT CAN I DO OTHER THAN STOP TAKING LYRICA. ? SHOULD iI QUIT OR LOWER DOSAGE? I TAKE 2 DOSES PER DAY. ## It's difficult to say exactly what about a medication causes any specific side effect, in many cases there is really no way to explain it, but Lyrica contains the active ingredient Pregabalin, which is actually an anticonvulsant, so it works on brain chemicals. This means that it may be having an affect on something that stimulates the appetite, or slows the metabolism, so some people gain weight easier than normal, while taking it. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? You may need to start more closely watching what you eat, or up the amount of exercise you get each day. ## I can relate to the weight gain with Lyrica. When I first ...

lyrica lawsuit

does anyone know if there is an ongoing lawsuit against the company who puts out Lyrica. I am a mess from it. Do we have a leg to stand on when it comes to the side affects they found out from people like us. I am a long termer. I have been taking 900 mg since 2005. Is there any one representing us? thank you vicky ## Hi Vicky. Right now it looks like the primary lawsuits concerning Lyrica are centered around suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Very sorry to hear about your condition from this drug. I've heard of many individuals experiencing some dramatic side effects from long term use. That's just a shame. I definitely would not give up yet, because what you are saying is now coming to the forefront, so it's just the beginning. What has your doctor's response been to you...

I live in near Aurora, IL. west suburbs of Chicago PLEASE SOMEONE HAS TO KNOW A DR. AROUND AURORA, IL OR W/IN 10 MILES OR SO THAT WILL PRESCRIBE THE PAIN MEDS I NEED.

How long before I see results?
28 Replies RSS
I was prescribed Lyrica today. Being the impatient person that I am, I was wondering the normal lenth of time before the medication starts working. ## It took a week for me. What were you prescribed Lyrica for? I started taking it after surgery on my cervical spine and for some reason started having panic attacks or something, dizziness and heart racing, only at night when trying to rest. After being on Lyrica for a week, those symptoms stopped, (not sure why or how it worked). I am now having low back problems and those symptoms have started again, so as of today they have increased my dose of Lyrica. I sure hope it works. ## Depending on the severity of your pain and your own metabolism, it can take anywhere from a week to a month to see results from this. ## I was put on Lyrica recen...

Lyrica and Alcohol
72 Replies RSS
You are not supposed to drink while on Lyrica. I made the big mistake of doing that. I took my dose in the morning and then got invited by some friends to go out. I do not usually drink, but started drinking around 9:30 pm. I was found in an alley behind a restaurant at 4 am. The last thing I remember was last call at 2am. I am only posting this to give a VERY strong warning not to drink while on this medication. Luckily I am OK and still alive. It is a horrible feeling to not know what happened in those 2 hours. Please do not drink while on Lyrica. ## I have been on Lyrica at various strengths from 200mg/day down to 50mg/day. I drink (probably more than I should) but I have never experienced any problems drinking the equivalent of 5 or so drinks while on this medication. I have experie...

Trigeminal Neuralgia
4 Replies RSS
I was on a combination of Trileptal and Neurontin for my Atypical Trigeminal Neuralgia pain. I was not having any side effects from the Neurontin, but having problems with the Trileptal (blurred vision and unsteady gate). The doctor wanted to decrease the Trileptal, but having done so in the past, she knew I would have increased pain. I was already taking 2700 mg of Neurontrin and I guess that is the max, so she took me off the Neurontin and put me on 150mg of Lyrica a day, then increased to 300mg/day. I am still having alot of pain, but it has only been 5 days and I am rather impatient. Has anyone heard of Lyrica use for Trigeminal Neuralgia pain? Thanks ## I have been on 900mg Neurontin a day, lots of pain. I had balloon compression. Did not help one bit. Dr now upped my neurontin to ...

Find an alternative for back pain!

My 46 year old mum died 3 weeks ago after taking 600 mg of Lyrica. She had only been taking 300 mg per day out of the 600 mg dose that was recommended by the doctor until the night she died. She was prescribed a permanent repeat prescription of 600 mg daily, due to falling off the end of her bed and hurting her back about 4 months ago. The cause of death has not been established yet, as no reports have yet come back, this is just what I know so far.
