Lyrica works very well for me
4 Replies RSS Share
I have been taking Lyrica 50mg 3x a day for idiopathic Peripheral Neuropathy in my legs and feet for the past 5 years. It works very well for me and I have -0- side effects. When I miss a dose my legs start burning and I become aware that I missed my dose. I also am able to get my Lyrica for free from Pfizer. ## Awesome! So very glad that it is working so well for you. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood changes, and weight changes. You haven't experienced any of them? That's amazing! Has anyone else had such a good experience with this? ## No, but then again my dose is rather low— 50 mg. 3 x a day ## I think most of you who are experiencing all the side effects mentioned in this forum would benefit if they lowered...

2 Replies RSS Share
im getting some kind of a blood test at work and what im sure about that they only take 1 drop of blood and i heard its a DNA test , so i have 2 questions 1. if it was a DNA test will Lyrica show ? 2. is 1 drop of blood enough to test for Lyrica? plz i need an answer , and thank u in advance . ## Why would your employer be doing a DNA check? That doesn't really make a lot of sense, since that checks your heredity, and etc. Do you know any other details about it? And no, Lyrica is an anticonvulsant that is also used to treat some types of nerve pain, and mood disorders, so it would not be detected on such a sample. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, headache, mood changes, dizziness, and weight changes. ## why would they ask for it im not sure , and ...

Neuropathy on my feet
5 Replies RSS Share
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 ...

does Lyrica affect you like a narcotic?
5 Replies RSS Share
What type of effect do you think Lyrica will have on a first-time female patient that weighs 125lbs? ## Depends on the dose. I am a 140lb female who was on no medication & took 150mg & was totally wiped out to the extent that i would hurt myself & not even feel it but dependence grows quickly & the withdrawals are the worst ever - google it & read the horror stories. Please please approach this drug with caution, especially if you have an addictive personality. ## Hello, Peg! How are you? Lyrica is not a narcotic, nor is it related to them. It is actually not any type of analgesic. It is an anticonvulsant that has also been shown to help with some mood disorders and certain types of nerve pain, due to the action is has in the brain. Its typical side effects may possi...

22 Replies RSS Share
I have been taking 75mg of Lyrica twice a day for about a year. I have become impotent as a result. I try to stop taking it then the neurotic pain returns. Does anyone else have this problem? ## I have been taking 50mg four to six times a day and I have stopped taking the medication for about two days and my pain comes back. I had S1, L5, and L4 Vert. fused and then two months after my surgery a woman turned in front of me causing me to run into her. It totaled the company vehicle I was in.

Lyrica withdrawals winging off
37 Replies RSS Share
I'm wanting to hear from anyone who has winged off of lyrica after so many mths taking it. I have had it with the med. I've gained 35 lbs in 4 mths. I never gain wt. I have sever numbness in hands and feet and swolleness. It's scary! I ran out one time with out getting refill, though I'd just stop it and start another tx. Well very wrong. I got so sick. I was having withdrawels and I had to get back on it. At the time it was worth getting back on it quickly to feel better. Plus the other side effects hadn't kicked in yet and not so severely. I'm worried it will be difficult to get off of it. ## I took it for fibromyalgia. Although it did help my flareup tremendously. The side effects are too much. ## thanks Verwon that was the exact imformation I was looking for....

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...
