lyrica class action lawsuit
3 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...

I have crps in both hands from carpal tunnel release...after several months, I was worse, not better. My workmens comp dr. said " You will have chronic pain the rest of your life and you will just have to learn to live with it"...oh thanks doc for screwing my hands up, not to mention how it has drastically has changed my life and limitations. I have been seeing a pain specialist ever since and that was back in 2001 when I had the release. I was on lyrica for the last 6 years, I have been off of it for three months. Now that I think back to when my severe depression started was not long since I started taking it.

32 Replies RSS
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. I'VE TRIED AT LEAST 7 OR 8 DIFFERENT MEDS. THE NORCO10'S OR EVEN STRONGER (FEWER PER DAY) WORK PERFECT, NO SIDE EFFECTS.

how long does lyrica stay in your system
93 Replies RSS
how long does it take for lyrica to leave your system? ## If you are referring to worrying about a drug test, then there is no need, Lyrica is NOT an opiate narcotic and is not tested for on these types of tests. If you are asking due to side effects or some type of reaction, it can vary depending on how long you have been taking it and how much, but usually the drug will be clear from your body in 48 to 72 hours. Lyrica, which contains the active ingredient Pregabaline, is an anticonvulstant that has also been proven effective at treating certain types of nerve pain. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## i am going for routine blood work and a urinalysis(chemical) tests as part of my physical...will Lyrica show up in any of these tests?Thanks ## okay first of all what you are ...

Lyrica does work
54 Replies RSS
Lyrica does work for myself. But I started having side effects. Double vision, being tired all the time, confusion, didn't even remember my age and that might be a good thing. But the drug is awesome for taking the nerve pain away. Just pay attention to side effects. Cindy ## Mu husband was on Lyrica for 30 days until he started experiencing severe side effects, i.e. dizziness, chest pain, weight gain, double vision, confusion, memory problems, tiredness. He was admitted into the hospital with the chest pain, in fear he was experiencing a heart attack. He has been off Lyrica for 3 weeks now and is still experiencing nausea and dizziness. How long did your symptoms last after discontinuing the med? He is getting very discouraged. Resa ## I had an orthopedic surgery on my ankle 8 mont...

SLEEPINESS

Help, any solutions to the 24 hour sleepiness, ## sleepiness due to what? ## My 14 year old daughter is trying Lyrica for serious migraine headaches. She has to take it at bedtime because she gets so sleepy from it. It never wore off. The plan was to increase the dose to one in the morning as well as at bedtime; however, she was never able to tolerate that. We tried it in the morning for well over two weeks but she could not get past the sleepiness. ## Yes it is Lyrcia, I have discussed it with my physician, we have tried a 25 mg dose, it did not help the burning pain, the lowest dose I can take and have it work is 50 x 2 day. I have tried numerous drugs over the last 4 years, this has been the best one yet, takes away all the tenderness, burning, belive it or not I have had adverse rea...

lyrica & incontinence

I took Lyrica for about 6 weeks & noticed it caused incontinence or urine leakage. I stopped it & the sx subsided. I now restarted it as the pain was unbearable. It works wonders for the pain if you can endure the side effects. I am going to see if I can somehow control the urine leakage if it starts again. ## I am on 300mg of Lyrica, and just today I am having the same problem! Has the problem come back, and if so, have you found any solutions? ## i began lyrica and was able to sleep without nerve tingling waking me every 15 minutes forthe first time in 4 years. the problem is that the first night i also wet my bed and have done so several more times since taking it. when i dont take it the problem stops. any advice would be welcome. ## I took a lyrica last nite at work because...

inject how to inject lyrica
16 Replies RSS
I wanted to know if you can inject lyrica IV ## If it is not a product specifically made to be injected then doing so IS NOT safe. Capsules and tablets contain fillers and not all of these are meant to be broken down by the human body, they are normally just expelled in your waste. If you try to dissolve it and inject it, then you are putting these fillers directly into your body and run the risk of creating clots and blockages, which could be fatal. You can also create blockages in your lungs if you try to snort these substances. Do you have any questions? ## ms contin also have filters and iv been doing them for years! dont all the good meds have a filter? ## all good meds have filters you can still inject em trust me heh and still live ## have u ever tried to inject lyrica? ## Tonigh...

lyrica lawsuit
1303 Replies RSS
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...

Lyrica and Alcohol
43 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...

Hi everyone, I am still on a progressing prootcol of Lyrica. I'm presently at 250mg a day.Till the Lyrica gets to the best pain management dosage, my doctor put me also on 6 acetaminophen (Tylenol) plus codeine a day. My question is "has anyone of you been able to completely get off the Tylenol and codeine after getting to the right dosage of Lyrica? " I am taking the Lyrica for nerve damage due to advanced spinal stenosis. I am also on 100mg of NaproxenE a day. Thanks in advance for your replies! ## Oops... 1000mg of Naproxen a day ## It is normal for your body to get used to anything that you take for a long period of time, even if you only use it as prescribed and a sudden cessation may cause some withdrawal and rebound effects. Generally, when trying to stop taking a nar...

Does anyone taking Lyrica have memory loss ?
230 Replies RSS
I have been on Lyrica for about 8 months now and I am having fantastic results. My dr is trying to increase my dosage and I have been doing it in 50 mg increments. I am up 100 more now in a month, for a total dosage of 400mg. I find that I have very bad recall and loss of my vocabulary during conversation. It eventually goes away, but I was wondering if anyone else has this? If it keeps up, I just may have to drop back down 50mg until I get used to it? That seemed to work that last time I had to raise it.BTW, I have nerve pain in my ribcage.(not caused by Shingles) Karel ## It is a possible reaction to this med, it is listed as a severe side effect that you should see your doctor about if you experience it. You can see it in the monograph listing here: Lyrica Info Click Here Have you co...

Rash after quitting Lyrica
48 Replies RSS
I took Lyrica (150mg daily) for 2 years. The medicine helped reduce my leg and hip gain greatly. In January I started working out daily and dieting and lost 30 pounds. I gradually have quit taking Lyrica and am having only a small amount of discomfort at times. The problem is that upon quitting the Lyrica the back of my knees started itching and welps appeared after I scratched them. It has been 3 weeks since I stopped taking Lyrica and I am still itchy. Has this happened to anyone else? Could this be a result of nerve damage? ## Lyrica contains the active ingredient Pregabalin, it is an anticonvulsant that has also been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain. It sounds like what you may be experiencing is a common withdrawal effect from your body trying to readjust to not havin...

Lyrica

I have herniated discs and sciatica. I was referred to a pain management doctor, who prescribed Lyrica. After reading all of these posts, and finding out the side effects, I'm not sure I want to take this medicine. Has anyone had good results with Lyrica, without these side effects? ## I have been using it for about7-8 months for nerve pain caused by intercostal neuritis and it has worked great for me. Of course I still get pain, but it is greatly reduced in both severity and frequency. The side affects are lethargy at first and forgetfullness, but it goes away in a few weeks and to me was definately worth the wait. Weight gain- I am so overweight to begin with and on so many things that can cause weight gain, it is hard to tell, but on a WW, I lose easily if I take it seriously. An...
