Does anyone taking Lyrica have memory loss ?
263 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) 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...

Rash after quitting Lyrica
51 Replies RSS
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...

Lyrica the wonder drug
5 Replies RSS
I used to take high doses of narcotics for severe neuropathy pain. That crap almost killed me and destroyed my life, leaving me destitute and homeless. I had to move in with my sister, and then some friends to stay off the street. I have been taking lyrica for several years and it helped, even while on the narcotics. Since going off the narcotics, I hav relied entirely on Lyrica to deal with the pain. My doctor changed my dosage about a month or so ago to 300mg twice a day and soon to 300mg three times a day. The difference has been amazing and the neuropathy pain is almost completely gone while the Lyrica is in effect. I do have some side effects though, like headaches, dizziness, sleepiness but I don't care. Anything is preferable to the pain, except for narcotics. ## Lyrica has b...

lyrica and methadone can I take them together?
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking methadone 20 mg every 6 hours for 2 years and was started on Lyrica 150 mg twice a day. Ifeel very weird after only taking the Lyrica one time. I want to know if this is normal or do I need to take the media at different times? ## Hello, Cathy! How are you? What symptoms are you describing by saying you felt weird? I'm sorry, but I need more details, before I can say whether or not it was normal. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Lyrica as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, weight gain and mood swings. However, I did not find any interactions or problems listed between it and the Methadone, but it's always best to double check such information to be sure.

memory problems with lyrica
2 Replies RSS
Please help! I have serious memory problems ## Hi, Donna! Sorry about the problems that you're having. Yes, having a problem with your memory is actually a common side effect of Lyrica. Learn more Lyrica details here. Have you consulted your doctor? Lyrica just might not be the right medication for you to take and you may need to try something else. ## Hello, hope your Lyrica problem has been resolved. I also had a bad reaction to Lyrica. I always stop a medication immediately if I have a bad reaction to it. And you can always trump your doctor at any time and not take the medication. By law, they can not make you take it. If they push you into it, see another doctor. Even if its a prominent doctor.

I am taking Lyrica of 150 teice daily & feeling really dizzy & like a drunk person , immagine i cannot even walk properly. The thing is that the pain is still there ## Lyrica can cause those types of symptoms as side effects. Learn more Lyrica details here. And this isn't actually an analgesic that will relieve pain immediately, it can take 4 to 6 weeks for this to reach its full effects in your body and to see if it works for you. However, with those side effects, it may not be the right medication for you to take and you should look into your other treatment options. Is there anything else I can help with? ## When I started Lyrica @ 75mg 3x /day, I felt exhausted but relieved that I could deeply sleep for the greater part of 3 days, only getting up for bathroom & to ea...

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 ...
