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.[9][10][11] Its use for epilepsy is as an add-on therapy for partial seizures with or without secondary generalization in adults.[12] Some off-label uses of pregabalin include restless leg syndrome,[13] prevention of migraines,[14] social anxiety disorder,[14] and alcohol withdrawal.[15] When used before surgery it does not app...

WHAT CAUSES WEIGHT GAIN IN LYRICA
115 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 ...

laraca, side affects and what the main purpose of this pill is for ## Did you mean to say Lyrica? This is the closest match i've been able to find to the spelling. Lyrica is indicated for the following: • Treatment of neuropathic pain from diabetic neuropathy or post herpetic neuralgia. There is not enough data to state that it should be used in all neuropathic pain. • Adjunctive therapy in adults with partial seizures with or without secondary generalization • Fibromyalgia • Generalized anxiety disorder A list of side effects can be view by clicking on the link below and scrolling down to the section called "adverse effects": If you have any more questions or comments to add, please post back so I can f...

lyrica & incontinence
40 Replies RSS
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...

Does anyone taking Lyrica have memory loss?
383 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...

Lyrica And Fluoxetine
5 Replies RSS
Has anyone had side effects taking Lyrica And Fluoxetine together? Such as mood swings, concentrating on things, forgetfulness, mixing letters and words, dizziness, hands jerking/ twicthcing in hands, ## Just found this site. I also take Fluoxetine 20mg.and Lyrica 25mg. three times a day. When I first started the Lyrica I was very disoriented, so much so I was afraid to drive. However as time has gone on that has disappeared. I have gained weight and have pretty bad dry mouth but the pain has decreased unbelievably. I just stood and danced for 2 1/2 hours at a Paul McCartney concert and did not suffer at all. The next day was another story but still manageable. ## Hi Diane, The side effects you've been experiencing are common on these medications, so you're definitely not alone....

3rd day on 75mg Lyrica 2x day and already have side effects
4 Replies RSS
This is my 3rd day taking 75mg Lyrica 2x a day. This is for multiple herniated discs/spinal damage. I also take Mobic 15mg a day for the spine and for a shoulder injury (dislocation, labral tear, tendinitis). I have been on Mobic since May 30 with really no issues. I also take Topamax 200mg 2x day for migraines and have been on that for a couple of years. Since adding Lyrica, the first day I really did not notice anything. The second day went easily also. The third day, food tastes weird and my mouth feels funny. I read that dry mouth is possible, but my mouth is not dry, it just tastes 'off'. I also feel strange in general. I am not disoriented or confused or light-headed, but I feel different and I would not call it exactly pleasant. My head also feels kind of 'puffy'....

yeast infections
3 Replies RSS
Did any one while on Lyrica have problems with yeast infections? How about your tongue swelling? ## Yes. I have never had yeast infections, and since starting Lyrica, I have been battling them for 2 months. Lyrica's website mentions nothing about this issue, but I am quite positive that it is directly related. Nothing else in my life has changed (diet, exercise, spouse, etc). ## I was also having yeast infection problems on lyrica and I finally figured that lyrica was causing me to have vaginal dryness. Now I use a moisturizing vaginal suppository every night and haven't had a yeast infection since. I would first use a homepathic yeast infection treatment to treat the yeast infection and the immediatly start the moistrizing vaginal suppositories Hope this helps. ## I'm on ly...

Lyrica, Pharmaceuticals and Hillary Clinton
1 Reply RSS
Maybe the politicians should stop taking kickbacks from pharmaceuticals to enable citizens/patients to afford meds in the U.S. Example: my close friend came to the U.S. For a visit. She takes lyrica - it cost her .71 cents per capsule from pfizer!! (she lives in india). I have to pay $7.61 per capsule for lyrica in the U.S. If the ceo of any company took gifts or money from vendors- my company better be getting the absolute best price - or the ceo will be fired. Hillary Clinton (alone) took MILLIONS from pharmaceuticals: Clinton, Hillary (D) $2,050,177 Burr, Richard (R-NC) Senate $413,565 Ryan, Paul (R-WI) House $390,574 Portman, Rob (R-OH) Senate $357,940 Paulsen, Erik (R-MN) House $351,550 #Hillary is dirtier than most all politicians! Rules should be changed immediately!! This is why...

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...
