WHAT CAUSES WEIGHT GAIN IN LYRICA
110 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 and yeast infection
1 Reply RSS
I am a man who takes lyrica. Can I give my wife a yeast infection from my sperm having lyrica in it? ## Hello, Eric! How are you? No, it doesn't work that way, regardless of the medication, she would not be exposed to enough of it via your sperm to cause any issues. Unless you are prescribed a medication that specifically says not to engage in intercourse, while taking it, there is nothing to worry about. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Lyrica as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings, and weight gain. Are there any other questions or concerns?

I have been taking 75mg of Lyrica twice a day for about a year. I have become impotent as a result. I try to stop taking it then the neurotic pain returns. Does anyone else have this problem? ## I have been taking 50mg four to six times a day and I have stopped taking the medication for about two days and my pain comes back. I had S1, L5, and L4 Vert. fused and then two months after my surgery a woman turned in front of me causing me to run into her. It totaled the company vehicle I was in. My back hurts worse now than it ever has. Your right, the pain does come back. ## Impotence is not listed in the side effects for this drug: Lyrica Info Click Here However, it is a potential side effect of many medications and since this one affects nerves and can be used to treat nerve pain, it is a...

Lyrica does work
58 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...

Does anyone taking Lyrica have memory loss?
372 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) ## It is a possible reaction to this med, it is listed as a side effect that you should see your doctor about if you experience it. You can see it in the monograph listing here: Pregabalin Details Have you consulted your doc...

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...

is it necessary to wean off lyrica
2 Replies RSS
Is it necessary to wean off lyrica if having surgery in 1 month. Have been taking 75 mg for three weeks and will take til surgery. If necessary to wean off , what is recommended to wean off. Dr suggested she could not find anything that says I need to do that. Suggested I take I tIl surgery. Please help. ## Hello, Nicky! How are you? That is a fairly low dose and, if you take it until the time of your surgery, you shouldn't experience any severe withdrawal effects, so it is usually best to follow your doctor's instructions. The FDA does warn that there is a slight chance that stopping it suddenly may cause nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, diarrhea, and depression. Are you on any other medications? ## Hi thanks for your reply. I take many more meds including tradjenta fo...

How long before I see results?
30 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
81 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...

Lyrica in general
2 Replies RSS
I am 85 tears of age and I have been taking Lyrica for at least 10 years. I was immediately prescribed 75 mg as treatment for severe Neauropathic pain in my lower leg I also had bone pain mainly in the Tibias, I had this particular pain for 30 to 40 years. When I started on the treatment it was dramatic, the pain went almost overnight, it was as if a magic wand was waved. As the years passed I noticed the effects gradually lessened, so the dosage was increased. I suffer with loss of balance and when it first happened I was diagnosed with Benign Postural Vertigo and was treated for that. Now a few days ago my GP increased my Lyrica dose and balance has become worse. It started me thinking and I realised that my dizziness coincided with my first taking Lyrica. So tomorrow I will be attend...

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.

can lyrica help with sternum pain (in chest)
1 Reply RSS
I had chest pain for hours only to hear hours later my chest cavity POP loudly like the metal cap popping off a glass bottle. Soon following extreme pain in the sternum causing the sharpest jolts of pain continually for days now....would lyrica help decrease any of this pain until I can pick up my Naproxen in a few days? ## Hello, Kelly! How are you? It would be best to have this checked out by your doctor to see what happened, you might have developed costocondroitis, or you may have separation of the rib cage. The Lyrica may help, but it takes about 4 to 5 weeks to reach its full level of efficacy in your body. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...

Lyrica false positive for methamphetamine?
1 Reply RSS
I take 150 mg of Lyrica per day for neuropathy. Can this cause a false positive for methamphetamine in a mouth swab? ## Hi Jenny, To my understanding Lyrica (Pregabalin) isn't chemically related to methamphetamine at all. They are categorized into two separate drug classifications, induce different effects and have different pharmacology altogether. Seldom do I even hear of them both being used in the same paragraph. Lol.... If you took Lyrica and got a reading for methamphetamine, the only thing I could suspect is that the drug panel was faulty/inaccurate by design. My thoughts are, if you were able to take a Liquid Chromatography Tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) analysis on the same day as the mouth swab, it's pin point accuracy would've proved whether the mouth swab wa...

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...

I am the patient of a pain management physician because there is nothing else that can be done for my back other thantry to manage my pain. I have had 19 back surgeries, including rods, broken back and rods on right side. My last surgery was the insertion of two morphine pain pumps, which caused my body to reject the plastic or some component thereof. They also inserted two dual-lead dorsal column stimulators, and even though all four of these pumps worked successfully, my body also rejected come component in the stimulators as well. One of the largest problems, second only to the pain, was the fact that I had 5 deep wound that went all the way down to my rectus muscle in my stomach. I had a staph infection from the pump as well as the stimulator. It took 6 months of wound care from the...
