WHAT CAUSES WEIGHT GAIN IN LYRICA
107 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 ...

Does anyone taking Lyrica have memory loss?
359 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...

I have had a couple of blackouts when the dosage was too high. It sure is scary ## i had the same thing when i had the doctor advise me to go up to 150 mg, three times a day i had weird blackout type memory problems so i had cut back, and only took the 150 mg two times which the problems went away after the higher dose was out of my system, ## i have ended up in my recliner by the wood stove twice, middle of the night. i woke up and didn't remember going out there. if i lower the dose the pain is unbearable. this drug is the worst i have ever experienced, horrible drug, don't start! ## My husband had been taking 600 mg of Lyrica and cut back a little because he was not sure it was helping.

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...

I live in near Aurora, IL. west suburbs of Chicago PLEASE SOMEONE HAS TO KNOW A DR. AROUND AURORA, IL OR W/IN 10 MILES OR SO THAT WILL PRESCRIBE THE PAIN MEDS I NEED. I'VE TRIED AT LEAST 7 OR 8 DIFFERENT MEDS. THE NORCO10'S OR EVEN STRONGER (FEWER PER DAY) WORK PERFECT, NO SIDE EFFECTS.

Lyrica and codeine
6 Replies RSS
Hi everyone, I am still on a progressing prootcol of Lyrica. I'm presently at 250mg a day.Till the Lyrica gets to the best pain management dosage, my doctor put me also on 6 acetaminophen (Tylenol) plus codeine a day. My question is "has anyone of you been able to completely get off the Tylenol and codeine after getting to the right dosage of Lyrica? " I am taking the Lyrica for nerve damage due to advanced spinal stenosis. I am also on 100mg of NaproxenE a day. Thanks in advance for your replies! ## Oops... 1000mg of Naproxen a day ## It is normal for your body to get used to anything that you take for a long period of time, even if you only use it as prescribed and a sudden cessation may cause some withdrawal and rebound effects. Generally, when trying to stop taking a nar...

lyrica 50mg. White capsule
1 Reply RSS
I am allergic to sulfa drugs but not sure if I can take this medication. I Have had knee surgery, have RSD, and degenerate bone disease in back, can I take Lyrica if allergic to sulfa drugs? ## Hello, Marye! How are you? Was the prescribing doctor and your pharmacist aware of your allergy? If so, there should be nothing to worry about, because they will check medications for you. Lyrica itself is not a sulfa drug, however, I can't check the inactive ingredients for you based just on the color. What are the markings on the capsule? The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings and weight gain.
