How To Get Off Lyrica

Have been taking 200 mg daily. Does not help my neuropathy at all. Want to stop taking this expensive worthless drug. How do you wean youreself off? ## How long have you been taking it? If it has been for just a short time, then weaning may not be necessary, but you should double check with your doctor to be sure. Learn more Lyrica details here. Additionally, if it hasn't been that long, you may not have given it enough time to see if it will help your neuropathy, since it does take 4 to 6 weeks to reach its full effectiveness. ## I have been on Lyria nearly 3 month, No notible difference in my neuropathy. Very expensive, even with my co-pay. Just want to be done with it. Was taking 100MG 2x a day. Now taking one till I run out. Their ads are so deceiving. Big promises, 0 results. #...

Lyrica 50

Use of this drug to for pain suppression from sciatica pain ## For fibro:I was on 25mg of lyrica then upped to 50mg. Had lots of blurred vision on the 50mg, which progreesed to loss of concentration. Brought myself back to 25mg, still have some blurred vision. but am taking it at night to sleep, the savella 12.5mg in am. So far it's a great combo... ## Lyrica contains the active ingredient Pregabalin, it is an anticonvulsant that has also been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain. The FDA lists the typical side effects Pregabalin as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and fatigue. Are you still taking just the 25mg dose? Savella is antidepressant that also helps with nerve pain, and may cause very similar side effects to those listed above.

Lyrica has ruined my life. It wasnt bad enough with the pain from my back injury. I only took lyrica 2 weeks. The weight gain was bad. I loss 1/3 of my hair in 4 months.

Just started Lyrica, weird side effects

Last week my pain maangement doctor told me she was stumped since my epidural pain shot did nothing and no issues on imaging test. SHe brought up Fibromyalgia and the connection to my sensitive skin issues and a possible connection to my ongoing "mystery nerve and muscle pain". She prescribed my Lyrica and after only a couple of days I am a bit perplexed. My cognitive issues are pretty rapidly clearing up to a decent degree. On the other hand the pins and needles sensation that was localized ot my back and thighs is now all over my body and it very uncomfortable. The pain level has decreased only to a small degree. My doctor told me to try it for a couple weeks and go from there. Its only been a few days but i already want to stop it. Is there any instances where it amplifies ne...

I was prescibed Lyrica for my nerve pain in my left leg and the doctor told me it takes at least 2 weeks to really get into your system. He also said that it is much better than Neurontin, which I am currently taking. Dont know about any side effects yet. But will let ya know. Hope this helps. ## any info on this thing helps, I have been on it for about 6 orf 7 weeks had the mg increase so will find out; thanks ## They are in the same medication class, both are anticonvulsants that have also been shown to help with some types of nerve pain. The side effects to Lyrica may include nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes, and mood changes. How has it been working for you? ## Works for me. I have been on 50 mg of Lyrica 3 times a day for at least 10 years for idiopathic Peripheral Neuro...

Pain control problems with Fibromyalgia

Have tried Lyrica, Gabintin,Cymbalta,Prozac. Only Percocet with a little Valium seems to help a bit. That is starting to become ineffective.Cant exercise due to incompletely diagnosed back issues pending an MRI. What else can I do or try? I am losing mind from constant pain! Please help... ## Percocet contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone, so it may be the Oxycodone that's helping you. It is available in higher doses in both regular and time released formulations, without the Acetaminophen. Have you ever asked your doctor about trying it? ## Sorry for not answering sooner. Forgot I o posted this thread! I guess it's the Fibro Fog. Anyway my dr won't go past the level of Percs unless I go to Pain Management dr. Tried that once & they treat everyone like junkies.

Is Lyrica a narcotic drug?

i need to know if this drug is a narocotic drug cause i don;t want to take drugs that is ## I don't know I just like being involved in stuff I don't know anything about!!! ## Do you know that lyrica works by destroying the nerves and/or neurons. I am an ex-nurse and ex-respiratory therapist. Do you know what your brain is made of? Nerves and neurons. Lyrica destroyed my short memory and caused me to lose my job of 29 years at a hospital. It has been 8 years since I last took it and I still have memory loss. This is a very dangerous drug. You who are on it be careful. There is more to this drug than weight gain. ## Lyrica is NOT a narcotic. But, they do advise people who have had a drug or alcohol problem 2 b careful taking it. ## Lyrica contains the active ingredient Pregabalin,...
