Lyrica Overview

Pregabalin, marketed under the brand name Lyrica among others, is a medication used to treat epilepsy, neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia, and generalized anxiety disorder.[8][9][10] Its use for epilepsy is as an add-on therapy for partial seizures with or without secondary generalization in adults.[11] Some off-label uses of pregabalin include restless leg syndrome,[12] prevention of migraines,[13] social anxiety disorder,[13] and alcohol withdrawal.[14] When used before surgery it does not appe...

Lyrica false positive for methamphetamine?
2 Replies 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...

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?

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.

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...

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...

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...
