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!

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 narcotic, it is always better to taper slowly, to prevent as many of those problematic effects as possible.

What is your dosage of the Tylenol with Codeine?

Thanks for your reply.

I am presently on 250mg of Lyrica daily. I also must take at least 1200mg of acetaminophen and 32mg of codeine daily to control the pain. Tomorrow I up the Lyrica to 300mg a day. I would so like to get rid of the acet. and codeine! But that codeine gets rid of the pain immediately.
