lyrica lawsuit

Does anyone know if there is an ongoing lawsuit against the company who puts out Lyrica? I am a mess from it. Do we have a leg to stand on when it comes to the side effects they found out from people like us? I am a long termer. I have been taking 900 mg since 2005. Is there anyone representing us? Thank you ## Hi Vicky. Right now it looks like the primary lawsuits concerning Lyrica are centered around suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Very sorry to hear about your condition from this drug. I've heard of many individuals experiencing some dramatic side effects from long term use. That's just a shame. I definitely would not give up yet, because what you are saying is now coming to the forefront, so it's just the beginning. What has your doctor's response been to your deter...

Does anyone taking Lyrica have memory loss?

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 Has Seriously Impaired My Mind... Memory loss

Lyrica Has Seriously Impaired My Mind And Damaged My Parotid Gland. After only 2 and 1/2 weeks on it (for neurogenic pain and spasms from spine injuries lumbar spine and cervical spine): First day after taking it, "buzzing electrical nerve symptoms" some better, but pain was still very much there. Dizzy, stumbling... Dizziness decreased after a few days (never stopped, always present when first arising from sleep). During those 2 and 1/2 weeks that I took Lyrica, I have gained 10 lbs (have not lost it) had extreme dry mouth (still dryer than pre-Lyrica), got tangled up, as in "lost" in my clothes when dressing, tangled in my seat belt when getting in and out of car and tangled in my purse straps ... all the time... Was (still am) constantly reversing words (I say "up...

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 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...

Lyrica side effects of long term use and teeth loss

I have been on lyrica from the very beginning of release 12-01-05. I have major side effects taking 900mg a day, now having teeth loss. Has anyone else been having this problem? 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). This all came about after being on Lyrica a little over 1 year. I am interested in hearing other teeth related stories as we have spent over $8K in the past year trying to save the teeth I have. After 18 years of timely adult check-ups I found these problems all at once! ## Lyrica can cause or aggravate dental issues, as will a lot of medications if you are on them long-term. One of the primary reasons is that it causes ...

how to stop taking lyrica after only 3 weeks

I've only been taking lyrica for 3 weeks. 75mg twice a day for a week then 150 mg twice a day for 2 weeks. I need back surgery and lyrica isn't something I should have been subscribed. The specialist told me to stop taking it but now I'm reading that I need to wean off. Do I still need to wean off if I've only been on it 3 weeks? The Dr. went on vacation for 3 weeks so I can't ask him ## I have been using Lyrica 200 mg twice a day in excess of a year. My pharmacy failed to request a refill request as they said they would and I was out for about 5 days. I've had 5 toes amputated and had pain in my feet. During the period I was out, it felt like pins & needles (or your feet waking up from being asleep) all the way up to my knees! The dr. explained that this is ...

Can my meds be causing Amensia and ADHD?

I take Lyrica, Tramadol, Effexor, Vyvanse, Valium (I have been on this medication for the past forty years because I have TMJ and it works as an muscle relaxant), Hyoscyamine, Dexilant, Singulair, and vitamins. Could any of these drugs (along or in combination) be causing me to experience amnesia? I was also recently diagnosed with ADHD.

Neuropathy on my feet

I'm diabetic. Neuropathy is a big problem with my feet specially at night. I was taking lyrica, I call it a miracle pill for me. The only huge problem with Lyrica was gained so much weight but only in my stomach. I was so happy with Lyrica that never payed attention. Till one day my nephew asked me if I was pregnant. Stopped the meds and tried everything else but nothing works. ## I've been taking Lyrica or (Gabapentin) 300mg 3-4 daily for 5 yrs now and I do notice I do eat more, especially if suboxone is added to the mix. I occasionally take suboxone, maybe once a month for 5-7days to break up the pain meds I take, or if I simply run out. Anyways, yes, it all goes to my stomach. Also, maybe more people will post saying the same thing as I'm sure it's a side effect, but ...

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...

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 & 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...

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....
