Lyrica: libido, depression, suicidal thinking
1 Reply RSS
I am on Lyrica but I read somewhere that it affects libido and it increases depression and suicidal thinking. Please let me if u have such experience. Thanks. ## Hello, Ivan! How are you? The U.S. FDA does list those as being possible side effects of it, as well as nausea, dizziness, mood swings and weight gain. However, not everyone experiences all the side effects of any given medication. Have you had any problems with it? Can anyone else that's taken it chime in?

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...

Does anyone taking Lyrica have memory loss?
340 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...

How long before I see results?
27 Replies RSS
I was prescribed Lyrica today. Being the impatient person that I am, I was wondering the normal lenth of time before the medication starts working. ## It took a week for me. What were you prescribed Lyrica for? I started taking it after surgery on my cervical spine and for some reason started having panic attacks or something, dizziness and heart racing, only at night when trying to rest. After being on Lyrica for a week, those symptoms stopped, (not sure why or how it worked). I am now having low back problems and those symptoms have started again, so as of today they have increased my dose of Lyrica. I sure hope it works. ## Depending on the severity of your pain and your own metabolism, it can take anywhere from a week to a month to see results from this. ## I was put on Lyrica recen...

lyrica damage
4 Replies RSS
My partner has been taking Lyrica for 4 years. Last year he was diagnosed with optic neuropathy in his right eye. This March nearly a year to date I had to rush to the eye and hospital again, the optometrist thought it was a teuma. He was again diagnosed with Optic Neuropathy now in his left eye which is very worse than the right eye, he is not allowed to drive, as there is not cure for this I am very concern as the eye doctor said he could go blind. He is also on OxyContin and the paper work in the tablet box said to contact your doctor if u have eye problems, I feel that the Lyrica has caused this condition, I had mentioned to the eye doctor about he medication he would not say it was the caused very worried. ## Please be careful i take them the side affects are blurred vision stagger...

Clorazapate and lyrica
1 Reply RSS
Been on these meds for about 6 weeks on and off lyrica 225mg twice a day and clorazapate 7.5 twice a day. Am I physically dependent I want to be off them ## Hello, Bam! How are you? Both of these should be stopped slowly, via a taper, because stopping abruptly can create the risk of seizures. Thus, it would be best to consult your prescriber, so they can help you stop them carefully. The FDA lists other withdrawal effects as possibly including nausea, fever, chills, depression and anxiety. Is there anything else I can help with?
