I have herniated discs and sciatica. I was referred to a pain management doctor, who prescribed Lyrica. After reading all of these posts, and finding out the side effects, I'm not sure I want to take this medicine. Has anyone had good results with Lyrica, without these side effects? ## I have been using it for about7-8 months for nerve pain caused by intercostal neuritis and it has worked great for me. Of course I still get pain, but it is greatly reduced in both severity and frequency. The side affects are lethargy at first and forgetfullness, but it goes away in a few weeks and to me was definately worth the wait. Weight gain- I am so overweight to begin with and on so many things that can cause weight gain, it is hard to tell, but on a WW, I lose easily if I take it seriously. An...

Does anyone taking Lyrica have memory loss?
378 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 in Mexico

Hi, I've learned a lot from other people's experiences here on medschat over the last few years and wanted to share my experiences with something that comes up on here from time to time, and I hope that I can somehow help out somebody out there wondering. I live in socal (south of LA), and have been taking Lyrica (pregabalin) for fibromyalgia and migraines for about six or seven years now, and it would not be exaggerating to say that it has really changed my life. It's an incredible product, and the only thing I've tried after ten or fifteen years of doctors trying me on everything and mosf things they tried either not doing anything or else just making things worse. With no generic alternative available in the US, I have to pay $217 every time I pick up a refill (28 pil...

My wife got paralysis stroke on the left side of her face in May 2011 due to high BP. It was cured after hospital treatment. After one year she got post paralysis symptoms like her left eye was burning and felt painful, water discharge from nose, backside of her head felt like it was burning, right hand burning. The uneasiness from these conditions were observed everyday, every 6hrs and the suffering lasts 1hr. We have consulted so many neuro physicians and surgeons with no use. We have used Neugaba, gabarich, Trigabantin, Lyrica pregabalin. So far there's been slight improvement observed but still suffering from eye pain. Due to this, the patient is not able to sleep at night causing weakness and headache. Moreover, she is diabetic type 2 since last year and using medicine for that...

Lyrica 50mg A Narcotic
5 Replies RSS
i guarantee it is addictive. I went off thinking it wasn't and suffered worse withdrawals than coming off oxycocdone. ## Lyrica, which contains the active ingredient Pregabalin, is an anticonvulsant, which is also used to treat nerve pain, anxiety and as a mood stabilizer. It is not a narcotic, however, it has been known to cause withdrawal effects in people that have been taking it for a long period of time, when they stop taking it abruptly. This happens, because your body gets used to anything you ingest on a regular basis and if you stop using it, your body has to readjust to not having that substance. It is called dependence. More details: Have things improved for you? ## Lyrica is addictive in the extreme. But true: Lyrica not a narcotic. It is an anti-convulsant with sedative...

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...

lyrica withdrawels winging off.

I'm wanting to hear from anyone who has winged off of lyrica after so many mths taking it. I have had it with the med. I've gained 35 lbs in 4 mths. I never gain wt. I have sever numbness in hands and feet and swolleness. It's scary! I ran out one time with out getting refill, though I'd just stop it and start another tx. Well very wrong. I got so sick. I was having withdrawels and I had to get back on it. At the time it was worth getting back on it quickly to feel better. Plus the other side effects hadn't kicked in yet and not so severely. I'm worried it will be difficult to get off of it. ## I took it for fibromyalgia.although it did help my flareup tremendously. The side effects are too much. ## thanks Verwon that was the exact imformation I was looking for. ...
