Lyrica Overview

Pregabalin, marketed under the brand name Lyrica among others, is a medication used to treat epilepsy, neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, and generalized anxiety disorder.[10][11][12] Its use in epilepsy is as an add-on therapy for partial seizures.[10] When used before surgery, it reduces pain but results in greater sedation and visual disturbances.[13] It is taken by mouth.[10]...

Lyrica and insomnia

I take 75mg Lyrica for nerve pain in my legs and feet. This is keeping me up for hours at night. I cannot go to sleep for 2-3 hours after going to bed. Does anyone else have this problem? ## Have you informed your doctor? You may need a higher dose of the Lyrica. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Lyrica as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes, and mood changes. However, it can also cause insomnia, so that is something to be aware of, in case it happens to you.

lyrica side effects

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. I have had a rash for over 1 year now. I mean a bad rash. This was my first side effect. And they warn you of this. Get off lyrica asap if you get a rash. I thought I was having a stroke the first week on lyrica when they rushed me to the hospital. I had read on the internet of how many young people have died from strokes from taking lyrica. My vision is so bad now. I can barely drive at night time and I have to were glasses to see the tv. The worst side effect ive had and still have is the terrible, terrible pain in all my joints. My knees are so bad and my hands and fingers & joints pound and throb 24-7. The swell...

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...

RE: Lyrica for Nerve Pain Spine Disordor

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. Has anyone...

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,...

Need Doctor. West Subs of Chicago That Will Prescribe Pain Meds

I live in near Aurora, IL. west suburbs of Chicago PLEASE SOMEONE HAS TO KNOW A DR. AROUND AURORA, IL OR W/IN 10 MILES OR SO THAT WILL PRESCRIBE THE PAIN MEDS I NEED. I'VE TRIED AT LEAST 7 OR 8 DIFFERENT MEDS. THE NORCO10'S OR EVEN STRONGER (FEWER PER DAY) WORK PERFECT, NO SIDE EFFECTS. I'VE TRIED ALL THE OTHER NON NARCOTIC AND THEY DO NOT WORK OR I FEEL LIKE A WACK FROM DRUGS LIKE LYRICA.

am not feeling any relief from the pain for shingles have taken 4 last day and a half as presribed

Have shingles,took 4 hydroco/acetaminop 5-325mg tab qua in last 2 days as prescribed have not had any relief from excruciating pain. When should I get some relief from pain? ## Hello, Rayna! How are you feeling? I'm very sorry that you're so miserable! The good news is that once is clears up, Shingles doesn't usually recur! Something topical might help a bit more, if used in conjunction with the pills. There are things available over the counter, such as Dermoplast and others that are sold for sunburn and such. If your doctor says it's okay for you to use one, then they can even prescribe something, or your pharmacist can help you find something to try. That problem with herpes viruses is that they are a skin condition, so they are topical and while you can take an oral ...
