Lyrica does work

Lyrica does work for myself. But I started having side effects. Double vision, being tired all the time, confusion, didn't even remember my age and that might be a good thing. But the drug is awesome for taking the nerve pain away. Just pay attention to side effects. ## Mu husband was on Lyrica for 30 days until he started experiencing severe side effects, i.e. dizziness, chest pain, weight gain, double vision, confusion, memory problems, tiredness. He was admitted into the hospital with the chest pain, in fear he was experiencing a heart attack. He has been off Lyrica for 3 weeks now and is still experiencing nausea and dizziness. How long did your symptoms last after discontinuing the med? He is getting very discouraged. Resa ## I had an orthopedic surgery on my ankle 8 months ago...

Lyrica withdrawals winging off

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....

lyrica and SULFUR BURPS WTH?

Hey, I started taking Lyrica 2 weeks ago to help with pain caused by MS, and today ive started having really bad sulfur burps, is this a symptom not on the box? Its kinda freaking me out.. ## Me too! All day and night! It's horrible, I'm going to see about switching medications. This is disgusting ## Lyrica has been known to cause various types of flatulence, and a sulfur smell can be caused by many medications, due to the chemicals they are derived from, other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, mood changes, and weight changes. If it bothers you that much, then yes, you may need to speak to your doctor about switching medications. I haven't experienced it that often, since I've been taking it, but we are all different. It could also be worsened by oth...

Side Effects

I have a CVS (Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome) condion. I experience alot of pain during a cycle. Lyrica works so far. I have experienced no vomiting or nausea during these days. But the side effects are kicking my butt. Dizziness, blurred vision, hyper, I can't stay seated. Staying up very late. Do these side effects subside or go away after the body get adjusated? I'm wired! I'm 43 years old and need to relax. ## I wanted to talk to the person that has CVS! My son has it too, was wondering how they diagnosed you and how often episodes occur. ## I had to see a GI doctor who did a stomach emptying test to rule out gastroparesis, an h. pylori test to rule that out, I had an upper endoscopy years ago otherwise they would do that. They have to just rule out everything else it could be...

does lyrica affect the liver

I have cryptogenic liver disease. It has been looking well for several years. Will lyrica damage it any further? ## It is hard to say, most medications are processed by the liver and long-term use of them could cause damage. Have you discussed this with your doctor or pharmacist? ## i even had no idea that i even had a liverproblem it came out in a catscan that was to investigate my back... so this is new i have a apptm with a liverdoctor 2 weeks from now... ## I can't say I know the answer to this but when I asked my Pain Specialist if it will affect my liver, he told me it is not assimilated in the liver, it is filtered in the kidneys. Someone on the other site told me I was misinformed but this is what my Specialist told me, if you can't believe him, who can you believe? Ask ...

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...

I see so many bad effects, who has experienced good?

I've been on LYRICA for almost a month, it was kind of a last resort for me. I have had chronic back/nerve pain (unknown cause) for 20 months now. Neurosurgeon and Orthopedic both say surgery is not an option. They recommended a spinal cord stumulator but im weary of it. LYRICA has given me energy and I sleep better. I cook and clean and laundry gets done...that hasn't happened since before pain started. I feel more positive but my moods change quickly. Has anyone else had these effects? ## There are plenty of people that have had good experiences with it, it's just that they aren't the ones that usually go hunting up a website for information. :-) It's a simple fact that most people don't share their good experiences with something, they only hunt up a site like...
