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...

Some urgent advice - Lyrica / Lexapro
Hello Ive been on Lyrica apx 1.5 years with varied dose but most recently 750mg (375mg morning 375mg evening). My question also involces Lexapro 30mg AM. I take a myriad of other meds as well. Thursday 10th July I stopped taking my am dose of lyrica and my lexapro....there was a number of events that were taking place and I had forgotten a bunch of times and by that stage I was like bugger it I want off this crap I may as well stay off it now. The lexapro was going to be stopped cold turkey anyway next week. Regardless of reason or whether I was going to stop anyway the way I feel now is deathly. I am moody, snappy very out of turn for me.

vision n lyrica
Is the vision loss permanent? I've been off Lyrica for almost 2 months n my vision hasn't gotten better. ## Hello, Pamela! How are you? After 2 months, with no improvement, it is time to have things checked out by an ophthalmologist. There is a chance that you may have something else going on that was unrelated to the Lyrica, or perhaps it caused some permanent damage. How long were you on it and what was the dosage?

side effects of lyrica
I have just started this medication for acute jaw nerve pain. i have just read all about it. sounds like a terrible drug with weight gain, depresion, etc. can you give me more details please. i am already on citilapram 30mgs a day ## Hello, Jacky! How are you? Yes, there is a risk of such side effects with it, but the thing you have to be aware of is that not everyone experiences them. Some people may run the gamut of all the side effects, but others may not have any. It all depends on you and your body. Do you normally experience a lot of them?

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...

Does anyone taking Lyrica have memory loss ?
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...

I feel like I'm going crazy. Anxiety, depression, parania, confusion, memory loss, mood swings, "high" feeling, can't stop crying
I have been taking Lyrica for about 3-4 weeks, low does of 50mg twice a day for cervical disc problems (neck) nerve pain. I am female, 42 years old. I FEEL LIKE I'M GOING MAD. Almost immediately I started experiencing a "high" feeling, and feel very disconnected to everything around me. I have trouble concentrating and sticking to any task, which is making working very difficult (I am a journalist/writer). My doctor warned me I might feel very drowsy after taking it, but I have the opposite problem - I cannot sleep. I average about 3/4 hours a night if I'm lucky. I feel very groggy when I wake and have been experiencing such violent, disturbing dreams that I constantly wake in a highly anxious state. My dreams scare me. In then I am behaving very violently to people arou...

Can You Take Lyrica With Methadone
I am on 15mg of methadone and just got a prescription for Lyrica 75mg. Is it ok to take these meds together? ## im on 70mg of methadone and 50mg of lyrica,,and no problems so far ## Can i take my seroquel 6 hrs after taking 10 mg methadone ## Does it truly relieve the pain? ## Is methadone the same as lyrica? ## No it's not chemical make up is totally different.

lyrica withdrawels winging off.
I'm wanting to hear from anyone who has winged off of lyrica after so many mths taking it. I have had it with the med. I've gained 35 lbs in 4 mths. I never gain wt. I have sever numbness in hands and feet and swolleness. It's scary! I ran out one time with out getting refill, though I'd just stop it and start another tx. Well very wrong. I got so sick. I was having withdrawels and I had to get back on it. At the time it was worth getting back on it quickly to feel better. Plus the other side effects hadn't kicked in yet and not so severely. I'm worried it will be difficult to get off of it. ## I took it for fibromyalgia.although it did help my flareup tremendously. The side effects are too much. ## thanks Verwon that was the exact imformation I was looking for. ...

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...

Lyrica and a fat belly
I have been taking Lyrica 150 mg twice a day with 100mg sustained release tramadok (ultram) I have severe post hepetic neuralgia in my left thigh following an attack of shingles. This combination of meds has reduced pain by 59% allowing me to function, Then I noticed I was slowly and stadily gaining weight - about 30 lb. The interesting thing is it is all (nearly) belly weight - my waist has now completely dissapeared. The first side effect (i didn;t really notice the weight gain at first) was I was unsteady and my balance degenerated quite a bit. The I noticed typing I would mix up similar words like their and there and sea and see. The wiuld always be the wrong way round. At first the memory loss seemed an extention of aging but in the last minth it has got alarming. Today I was follo...

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...

is lyrica narcotic, Lyrica is addictive
Lyrica is addictive in the extreme. But true: Lyrica not a narcotic. It is an anti-convulsant with sedative properties and some degree of anti-psychotic effects; it calms the brain but also slows the metabolism, causing weight gain. I was a borderline Anorexic and at first gaining weight was good because I was a size 0 and emaciated. But I barely eat and keep on gaining. I weight more than I ever thought I could, and I keep thinking everyone thinks I'm FAT. If so, they're right: I weigh too much. Docs say I am not "obese" but "just overweight," but I feel obese and it's not good. But that's hardly the worst: Lyrica is, it turns out, as addictive as H. And Lyrica Withdrawal is, as I will demonstrate herein, TRUE AGONY. And true peril. I used up my Lyrica (...

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 Is Dangerous / class action suit anyone?
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. I don't know how many times I said I hate my life and I wish I was dead, I had thoughts of taking all my prescriptions and going to sleep for good! By the grace of g...

Impotence : Side effect of taking Lyrica.
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...

inject how to inject lyrica
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...
