My 14 year old daughter is trying Lyrica for serious migraine headaches. She has to take it at bedtime because she gets so sleepy from it. It never wore off. The plan was to increase the dose to one in the morning as well as at bedtime; however, she was never able to tolerate that. We tried it in the morning for well over two weeks but she could not get past the sleepiness.

Yes it is Lyrcia, I have discussed it with my physician, we have tried a 25 mg dose, it did not help the burning pain, the lowest dose I can take and have it work is 50 x 2 day. I have tried numerous drugs over the last 4 years, this has been the best one yet, takes away all the tenderness, burning, belive it or not I have had adverse reactions to Keppra, very irriatble, Neurotin, never could get the dosage aobe 200, was worse than Lyrcia, didn't help as much, I think Gabatrial, had a significant rash. The only reason I submitted was maybe someone else is having the same side effect, and something helped them, I have been on Lycria for over 3 months, side effect did not improve, physicain finally prescribed a stimulate and that is not working, still could sleep 24 hrs a day, feels like eyes are lead, different feeling than be just tired. I stopped the med last couple of days just so I could get caught up at work, and have not felt sleepy since. I would really like suggestions as this drug is the best and I thoutht I was going to spend the rest of my life w.out pain, thanks for support

Karen, may I ask what you are seeking medication for? What type of pain are you trying to relieve? It sounds like some kind of nerve pain such as neuropathy or something. Is this it? If so, I never found the Neurontin or just about any other type of medication to help. Unfortunately, only narcotic pain killers as needed helped me.

Did you know they are trying to pull Neurotin off the market? Many people have had serious and/or deadly side effects from it.

They have been trying to remove the Neurontin for about a year now. As a matter of fact, many lawyers are running commercials trying to get current or former Neurontin users to contact them to be part of a class action lawsuit. They have been doing this for about 2 years now. If you have had any serious problems or if you wish to be part of a classaction suit to be heard, let me know I can get you the information.

I know what you mean about the class action suits. I am not one to sue at all;however, I learned over the years that the money was going to go out to people regardless. One did not have to have a bad experience or bad reaction to be entitled to the money. You only have to fill out a form giving your information and the name and phone number of the drug store where you got the prescription. I was leary but when ahead and did that much thinking now people will leave me alone. The lawyer has a predetermined amount he can collect already. This is separate from your eligibility. You don't pay into that at all. I had taken phentermine for about 6 months to try and lose weight and the company inisted that I go ahead and complete the paperwork, along with providing the pharmacy I purchased the medicine at. Over about a 3 year course I got updates about the drug and what was happening in court. I didn't pay much attention to it. One day out of the blue when I got my mail there was a check from the class action suit, filled out in my name with $1,783.00. I couldn't believe it.

Lyrica was prescribed for me
today because of compressed
nerve pain; 50mg. In 20 minutes I
was feeling sleepy. I had tried
Neurotin a few yrs back for
Fibromyalgia but the dosage was
much too high even at 100mg.
What is the answer since both
are in capsule form?
Where can I purchase them @
cheaper price than local
pharmacy?
Thank you, Lorene Rutherford

Lorene, did you check with the drug manufacturer to find out if you financially qualify for free or reduced cost medication? It is worth your time to go online and fill out their patient drug subsidy form. Also, call many pharmacies and get prices then call the pharmacy closest to you and ask them if they will match the cheapest price you find. This has worked for me many times. Most pharmacies will do it. I found that your little town pharmacies were actually cheaper than CVS, RiteAid or Eckerd.

I would not give a fourteen yr. old lyrcia. I have ME/CFS for 20yrs. There are so many natural ways for sleep. Melatonin perhaps. Sleep with guided meditation. I wish I never started the drugs given by western medicine....
