bad side effects from Lyrica
1 Reply RSS
I am so upset about the Lyrica of 900 mg that I was on for six weeks. It has destroyed my life. I nearly killed myself, my husband and possibly people on the road because I became a missile behind the wheel of a car. I stop taking it immediately and following that I had the feeling of shards of glass in my feet which pain management did not explain nor address! I suffered from the second week of February and have become bed-bound since. It has gone from shards of glass to plantar fasciitis and now they are telling me that I have and trapped nerves in my feet. I cannot walk I am waiting on taking a test to specify exactly what nerve is entrapped. Now noticing I am having similar pain in my hands, I am choosing alternative medicine next week to have acupuncture because here in the state o...

I do not want anything to happen if I have a drink when we go out for dinner as I am on 75 mg of Lyrica twice a day ## Please tell me if I can have a drink when I go for dinner as I am on Lyrica 75mg twice a day as I have neuropothy and arthritis through my body and I am going for physical Therapy for my balance ## It is always best to abstain from alcohol, when taking a prescription medication, according to the FDA, because it may worsen the side effects, because it can worsen the side effects, which may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and drowsiness. However, if your doctor approves of your imbibing, please make sure that you will not be driving, or operating any heavy machinery. Is there anything else I can help with?

lyrica & incontinence

I took Lyrica for about 6 weeks & noticed it caused incontinence or urine leakage. I stopped it & the sx subsided. I now restarted it as the pain was unbearable. It works wonders for the pain if you can endure the side effects. I am going to see if I can somehow control the urine leakage if it starts again. ## I am on 300mg of Lyrica, and just today I am having the same problem! Has the problem come back, and if so, have you found any solutions? ## i began lyrica and was able to sleep without nerve tingling waking me every 15 minutes forthe first time in 4 years. the problem is that the first night i also wet my bed and have done so several more times since taking it. when i dont take it the problem stops. any advice would be welcome. ## I took a lyrica last nite at work because...

Effects of Lyrica at higher doses

My pain dr recently started me on 50 mg of Lyrica. If the 50mg doesn't help what mg should I take? I have deep sore stiff pain and it only hurts worse when im walking or standing to wash dishes. They say I have osteoarthritis in my back and knees and they are rubbing bone to bone. What should I tell my pain dr.? Please help me. ## Hello, Verna! How are you? Well, the best thing to do is to give the Lyrica a chance and see if it will help you, or not. How long have you been taking it? It usually takes about 4 to 5 weeks for it to reach its full level of efficacy in your body. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and weight changes.

I started taking Lyrica for 3 weeks now for my Chronic Facial Pain. I had taken all the chronic pain meds and nothing work. I was diagnos with this illness since I had a root canal done, I even got 2 teeth extracted though the pain would go away. Anyway, I am now having some reaction, my feet and legs feels fat. However, my pain is about 4 in a scale of 10 being very painful. I take Lyrica 3x a day with 50 mg each along with oxycodon (if pain does not go away) and motrin 800 mg for head aches. I been on norcotic medicines for 2 years and now with Lyrica and etc. I am just wondering if the chronic pain actually go away? I am tired of taking all these medicine and scared that I will not have a liver left.............. ## Is Lyrica a narcotic? I think i saw that it is a controlled substanc...

I am taking 150mg to 300mg of Lyrica daily. The problem here is that I do not have a prescription. I take them from my boyfriends' bottle which he is prescribed. I am on other medication that are prescribed to me such as; Methadone, Prozac, Lorazepam, Seroquel (just to name a few). I started taking Lyrica because I was curious. Now I am addicted to the stuff and I'm too afraid to tell my doctor or my boyfriend. I am more depressed, anxious, think about death all the time and cry constantly. I have difficulties communicating to my therapist because when I open my mouth to speak, I begin crying uncontrollably. I am a mess, and I am afraid that I will eventually exit stage left. ## Hi, Ashley! Sorry about the issues you're having. Lyrica is actually not an opiate pain reliever,...

Lyrica, Topamax, and Meloxicam-is anyone taking this combo?
3 Replies RSS
I have been on Topamax (Topiramate) for a couple of years for migraines-200mgs twice a day. It makes a HUGE difference for me. I had an injury a few months ago and my doctor recently started me on Meloxicam (aka Mobic) 15mg once a day. It does seem to help and has not really affected me in any negative way as long as I eat when I take it. My doctor is going to start me on Lyrica also. I am wondering if anyone else has had this combination of all three, or a combination of even two of these medications. FYI-I cannot take Neurontin-I tried that several years ago and it led to depression. My doctor is aware of the problem and so he is going with Lyrica instead of Neurontin. The only side effect I have dealt with regarding Mobic is slight appetite loss, nothing else. I am concerned about th...

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...

problems with lyrica

I have been taking Lyrica for prophylactic migraine managment as well as neuropathic pain following discectomy of T8-9 and T10-11. I was previously on gabapentin and noticed cognitive sxs, and minimal effects for pain. After starting Lyrica, I almost immediately noticed decreased pain...I thought it was a miracle! I also had decreased migraines. Now that I have been on Lyrica 100mg BID, my weight gain has become unmanagable. I have gained 40 lbs, and I am only 5'3. I weigh more now than I did when pregnant with any of my children. I have also experienced many of the side effects mentioned in the discussion boards. I told my Dr. that I wanted to get off of it due to so many problems. He gave me a tapering schedule, but the first time I started decreasing my dose, I have started havin...
