Time to take to lessen fatigue?
1 Reply RSS
I take LYRICA at Midnite in hope it will make me less tired during the day but still quiet my damaged trigeminal nerve. Do the fatigue effects wear off while the pain relief remains? ## Hello, PT! How are you? Yes, such side effects are usually transient and typically go away in a few weeks, once your body gets used to the medication. The FDA lists the other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with?

Mintran as an Alternative to a Prescription Medication
2 Replies RSS
Does anyone have any information about Mintran as a treatment for Fibromyalgia? My primary care physician prescribed Lyrica but I didn't like the way it made me feel, especially with having to work. I went to my chiropractor today and he recommended the Mintran. Anybody have any thoughts on this? ## Hello, Shelby! How are you? Min-Tran is just a supplement product that is claimed to support a healthy nervous systems and to help maintain emotional balance. It's listed as containing Calcium, Iodine and Magnesium. Thus, there's really no harm in trying it, if your doctor approves, but there's no guarantee that it will help with anything.

WHAT CAUSES WEIGHT GAIN IN LYRICA
99 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 ...

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.
