how long does lyrica stay in your system
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 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...

Lyrica and Alcohol
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 does work
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...

is lyrica save to take with Adderall XR?
Hi is lyrica save to take with Adderall XR? Also I was wondering if lyrica would cause a person who is diagnosed with PCOS, more weight GAIN Then a person who is not? Also is lyrica save to take with Celexa? And should people who has ADHD... Be on Lyrica? ## Hello, Islandgal7! How are you? No, the fact that the person has PCOS will not have any bearing on how much weight gain it causes, it will really be about the same for most people. Taking Adderall XR with Citalopram can increase the effect of the Cialopram, as well as increasing serotonin levels. This can cause a dangerous interaction called Serotonin Syndrome, which can be fatal, so they really shouldn't be combined. Adderall XR is a stimulant that's most commonly used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. It carries the risk of be...

Does Lyrica works like Zoloft ?
I used to take (Sertraline) when i was in Miami, but now when i came home they dont have it here,, i found Lyrica and it was told that its the same ? i just need to know if it works like it or not ?? ## No, they don't work the same and are not interchangeable. Zoloft is an SSRI antidepressant. Lyrica is an anticonvulsant that is also used to treat certain types of nerve pain. They work in different ways and do not treat the same conditions. You can read more on both at the following links: If you were using the Zoloft to help with pain, then the Lyrica could be a viable alternative to try. In addition, if you were using it for a mood disorder, it may also help, because anticonvulsants are known to do that, too. However, they are not the same and don't work the same. Are there an...

Lyrica weight gain
Does anyone know if you gain more weight as you increase the milligrams of Lyrica. I've gone from 150mg a day to 600 & still may have to increase, I know weight gain is a side effect but does it ever level out or as I increase my milligram will I continue to gain? I've already gained 50lbs! ## Yes it can! I tried it & I believe I was allergic to it. I started swelling up immediately & even though I only took for a brief time, the extra weight I gained was super hard to get off. I've heard it helps some tho! Hope this was a little helpful =) ## Hello, RhondaKay! How are you? Several of the side effects from anticonvulsants are known to continue or worsen with time and weight gain is one of them. Mood swings and memory problems can also worsen. However, it really d...

Rash after quitting Lyrica
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...

is lyrica bad
I have just got prescribed to lyrica from my doctor for going through withdrawals off of xanax.Is this a good idea? ## Hello, T man! How are you? Lyrica is an anticonvulsant that has also been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain and some mood disorders. Typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, mood swings and weight gain. It would seen your doctor prescribed it to try to help alleviate some of the typical issues that can occur, when stopping a benzodiazepine, including the possible risk of seizures that doing so can cause. Mood swings and anxiety are also possibilities. Is it helping?

is itsafe to take neurotin with lyrica and is it a narcotic
Is lyrica a narcotic i just got some 100 mg to try i take neurotin 800 mg 3 times a day ## No, they aren't narcotics. ## Hello, Kaylee! How are you? BL is correct, thank you BL for your helpful post. To be more specific, these are both anticonvulsants that have also been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain and some mood disorders. Typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings and weight gain. That said, no, you shouldn't take both, because you would be essentially doubling up on the same medication, which could result in overdose. Is there anything else I can help with?

It is not a narcotic and will not get you high, therefore snorting it, or taking 4 or more at once is only likely to make you sick, or cause a dangerous overdose.

Lyrica and Liver Damage?
I had some weight gain, like 10 to 15 pounds. What really bothers me, is after using this product I have been diagnosed with a Fatty Liver... I don't drink and I had no problems before using Lyrica. I am very concerned Lyraca causes weight gain in the liver too! ## Well, a fatty liver is NOT weight gain in the liver. It is a far more serious condition. It can develop into Cirrhosis, which is far, far more dangerous and can lead to liver failure or death. You can read more about it here: American Liver Foundation Click Here It can also happen to people who are not alcoholics, sometimes it happens just because of a person's normal body issues. Some medications can cause it, sometimes it can also be caused by diet. That said, I am not finding anything that associated Lyrica (Pregab...

Does lyrica help for neuropathy?
Have neuropathy in feet. Take 2400 mgs a gabapentin daily. Would lyrica help> ## Hello, David! How are you? It may help you more than the Gabapentin does, but there's no way to say for sure, you'd have to try it and see. It is a very similar medication, Lyrica contains the active ingredient Pregabalin, which is also an anticonvulsant that's been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain and some mood disorders. Side effects typically include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, headache, weight changes and mood swings. Is there anything else I can help with?

lyrica and subutex
can Lyrica and subutex be used at the same time ## @kb39, From what I've seen posted on various drug interaction checkers, apparently using Subutex (buprenorphine) with Lyrica (pregabalin) can increase your risk of central nervous system depression; potentially leading to serious side effects that could be fatal. With that said, you may need to discuss this in more detail with your doctor as well, to ensure that frequent monitoring is done during your time on these medications. This way they can better determine whether or not you require an adjustment in your dosage in order to safely continue using both medications at the same time. I hope this helps!

any reports of negative effects taking lyrica and meclizine together
I ask because yesterday I went on a sail boat and to not get sea sick I took a meclinzine and another three hours later at about five pm my feet and half way up my lower legs were so swollen it was like pitted edema when I pushed it, it stayed indented and it started this swollen until about 1am. And I was just concerned if it was this is if it's the lyrica since it could swell my feet a little but nothing ever close to as bad as yesterday. Please let me know if you know anything. thank you. ## Hello, Sabbs! How are you? I'm very sorry about what happened. You should have this checked out by your doctor, such severe edema can be dangerous, because it may lead to congestive heart failure. However, as to the medications, no I didn't find any problems listed between taking them...
