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...

memory loss and blurry vision

I have been taking Lyrica for about a month now and my vision is still blurry but getting better, but what is bothering me is the memory problems. I seem like such a space-cadet! Is it gonna get any better or am I doomed to always be this spacey? ## nasty medication be ready for weight gain 25 to 40lbs. and hot flashes with ringing in the ears I was on 200mg 3x day and had to stop. lyrica, neurontin, gabitril all NASTY NASTY ## It Does eventually get better as you reach the dose you are going to. It is only Transient. It will go away. Have patience. ## Whether or not it is transient really depends on the person. For most people, yes, side effects do wear off once their body adjusts to the medication, however for some people they can last a lot longer, or never go away entirely. If you f...

Lyrica Side Effects results in loss of 13 teeth

I am the patient of a pain management physician because there is nothing else that can be done for my back other thantry to manage my pain. I have had 19 back surgeries, including rods, broken back and rods on right side. My last surgery was the insertion of two morphine pain pumps, which caused my body to reject the plastic or some component thereof. They also inserted two dual-lead dorsal column stimulators, and even though all four of these pumps worked successfully, my body also rejected come component in the stimulators as well. One of the largest problems, second only to the pain, was the fact that I had 5 deep wound that went all the way down to my rectus muscle in my stomach. I had a staph infection from the pump as well as the stimulator. It took 6 months of wound care from the...

lyrica & incontinence

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...

lyrica class action lawsuit

If you have had an adverse reaction to Lyrica, please contact a law firm. I just called mine and gave them my basic information, and they will be having a lawyer contact us. This drug is dangerous, deadly, and should be pulled from the market. Amomg all the usual issues, today i noticed a new one had been added. For males, sperm motility can be affected and children created by parents using Lyrica, there is the possibility of birth defects. Please call and at least get on record with this firm. The more of us who call and tell our stories, the more likely it is that the drug company is going to have to cover our medical expenses, pain and suffering, etc. ## Who is the attorney and in which state? ## Hi are you in Australia or America I to would add my name and case if I am able to conta...

I was on this drug for 5mnths, had a dental check jus after I started it all was perfect. Now a month ago my teeth started cracking and chipping, so I went back to dentist he did x rays said I needed crowns and some fillings, but when he started my teeth fell apart, the pregablin has done so much damage I have to have 5 lower ones out & a plate put in not good I'm 47, even the dentist said it happened quick. Can I report this to anyone, I would also say to anyone don't take it,it destroys your teeth ## Hello, Loopy! Wow, that is very odd, it usually takes quite awhile for these types of medications to cause such severe dental issues. In many cases, it takes years of use, not just months. As to who you can report it to, I don't know who your relevant drug regulatory agenc...

lyrica and gabapentin urine drug screen

I am on suboxone and neurontin and i have a urine test in the morning. I took 6 50mg lyrica. Will it show up the same as neurontin? ## Does lyrica show up the same as gabapentin on a drug test? ## Since both Gabapentin and Pregabalin are anticonvulsants, they are not usually included on most drug screens. Such tests generally only check for opiates, benzodiazepines, stimulants and substances that may be illegal, such as marijuana, according to FDA reports. While these medications can help with some types of nerve pain, and mood disorders, they do not fall under any of these categories. Is there anything else I can help with? ## You are correct in the tests, they test for illegal drugs or proscription drugs of abuse if suspected.... like benzodiazepines. However..... Neurontin metabolise...

Lyrica And Fluoxetine

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....

Those are really not good signs and you should seek medical assistance. It may be from the new medication, or a combo of stopping the old one and starting the new one. Lyrica, Zolpidem is a sedative hypnotic, so yes, it can cause depressive issues, because of the way it acts in the body. That is also why it's usually only meant to be taken at night, since it can ca...

Can You Take Lyrica With Methadone

I am on 15mg of methadone and just got a prescription for Lyrica 75mg. Is it ok to take these meds together? ## im on 70mg of methadone and 50mg of lyrica,,and no problems so far ## Can i take my seroquel 6 hrs after taking 10 mg methadone ## Does it truly relieve the pain? ## Is methadone the same as lyrica? ## No it's not chemical make up is totally different.

Please help. ## Within the past year I have undergone 5 root canals and 1 failed root canal that resulted in extraction. I have also been diagnosed as severely deficient in Vitamin D (18 of 35).

side effects of lyrica

I have just started this medication for acute jaw nerve pain. i have just read all about it. sounds like a terrible drug with weight gain, depresion, etc. can you give me more details please. i am already on citilapram 30mgs a day ## Hello, Jacky! How are you? Yes, there is a risk of such side effects with it, but the thing you have to be aware of is that not everyone experiences them. Some people may run the gamut of all the side effects, but others may not have any. It all depends on you and your body. Do you normally experience a lot of them? ## I have been taking Lyrica for several months now and currently at 200mg a day.

WHAT CAUSES WEIGHT GAIN IN LYRICA

I HAVE GAINED 27 POUNDS IN 3 MONTHS. WHAT CAN I DO OTHER THAN STOP TAKING LYRICA? SHOULD I QUIT OR LOWER THE 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...

Lyrica and Tooth loss

I have been prescribed Lyrica for over 4 years. Before this I had near perfect teeth - save for a few cavities. After about a year of taking the highest dose 3x my teeth started to get "brittle" and would simply break off while eatingor simply fall out sometimes. Has ANYONE heard of this or knows somone it has happened to also? ## Lyrica, as well as a lot of other medications, can cause dry mouth as a side effect. When this happens, even if it isn't bad enough for you to really notice, it allows bacteria to remain on your teeth that would normally be washed away by your saliva. Learn more Lyrica details here. Thus, any time you are taking a medication for a long period of time, your normal dental routine may not be enough. You might have to put some more effort in to save yo...

My workmens comp dr. said " You will have chronic pain the rest of your life and you will just have to learn to live with it"...oh thanks doc for screwing my hands up, not to mention how it has drastically has changed my life and limitations. I have been seeing a pain specialist ever since and that was back in 2001 when I had the release. I was on lyrica for the last 6 years, I have been off of it for three months.
