Seriously, would you really want to risk taking this medication? At least they are being honest for a change.

Do you want to destroy your brain? Yes? Good here is Lyrica. Oh and enjoy the shaking after withdrawal too. CUNTS

"Lyrica is believed to calm these nerves." Well, there's a statement of confidence. They don't KNOW whether it does or not? Pain is your body yelling at you "Hey! Something is damaged! Fix it!" If Lyrica merely stops the nerves from yelling this, you have done nothing to actually FIX the damage. Plus, how does Lyrica know WHICH nerves to affect? It doesn't. So ALL your nerve processing is affected. But does the pharma co. care? They just WANT you on a perpetual bandaid. No more cures! Bad for business.

Lyrica is the worst drug ever made. Highly addictive. Excerbates pain without you knowing it. Until you try to get off of it. Extreme pain now. Crying uncontrollabley. Extreme stabbing stomach pain and nausea. I'm bedridden now. How can Doctors prescribe this drug !!!! Everyone that uses it, is addicted, no exception. They just don't know it, because they haven't tried to get off of it. I have Lyme disease

well I have been taking lyrica for 2,5 years for general anxiety disorder with heavy psychosomatic symptoms as neck pain, food pipe pain, breathing difficulties and swallow difficulties, in the beginning I took Xanax against anxiety attacks then I went to psychotherapy but my symptoms got worse so my psychiatrist gave me lyrica 600mg a day slowly starting with 75mg then over two month up to 600mg, my anxiety went away petty quickly maybe after 6 month but my somatic symptoms persisted now after 2,5 years they are mild and I am on 450mg and will go down to 300mg. Side-effects: the first month headache, heavy drowsiness and sleepiness now only sleepiness, maybe my sex drive also went down but I am not so sure because I am 50, anyway this drug saved my life despite of the side effects, after many research not everybody can take the side effects, so this drug is really not for everybody, I have no dependencies issues because sometimes I forget to take my doses, I even forgot my pills on a biz trip and went off for two days cold turkey, but yes some ppl can get depended on it f not properly let down the doses step by step

I took ONE Lyrica for anxiety.. IT WAS A NIGHTMARE, So bad I had to leave work, and everything around me on the freeway started moving slow, in a circular motion. It made me so dizzy I couldn't walk straight. I managed to make it home safely and collapsed onto my bed thinking thank god this night mare is about to be over!. Well this thought was three and a half years ago, That following morning I woke up with severe pain in my hands, I couldn't even turn a door knob the pain was so bad. Here I am years later and just wasted juice all over myself attempting to pour due to the sudden crackling pain I get in my hands when I grab something. I didn't have any physical pain before Lyrica. Now my hands feel broken all the time, I also Have back pain from hell randomly when I sleep on a normal firm bed. Keep it mind Im only 25, and have been suffering since 22 from one lyrica "pregbalin" pill. Does anyone have any suggestions?

where i live in south london people sell 300 ml for £1 and people buy whole strips and do about 8 or 10 at a time. and drink with them. i also abused them before and stopped breathing on more than one occasion. i think people liken them to valium, and its a big problem here.

I've never been more confused in my life about a medication I'm seeing so many contradicting opinions. Literally from one end of the spectrum to the other. People saying it's not at all addictive and others saying the withdrawals​ are than opiates and benzos. I've only started it less than a month ago and my Dr told me to almost double up the dose every week until I reach taking 12 pills a day so far I don't see a huge difference I feel pretty good but last night my feet swelled like double the size and I'm a fairly thin girl so it really freaked me out to look down and have the feet of a morbidly obese man. I feel like I want to give it a chance because I've tried literally every other medication on this planet and the thing is my Dr would never prescribe me something addictive like whatsoever I begged him for Temazepam just one week's worth and he refused he's actually a really really good guy so when I found out about the addictive part I was shocked because he won't give me anything even slightly addictive. So these opposing opinions are killing me and confusing the shit out of me!! :(

Unbelievable instant pain relief and great sleep but the horrible fatigue, depression, confusion, dizziness, loss of reality is unfortunately not worth it. What a horrible dilemna. the only suggestion I can say is for people to use it infrequently as a one-off just for relief of severe pain or Insomnia for a day or two and then stop, as you would with a strong opiate, but never take it long term.

I can't remember how long I've been on this stuff. 300mg a day I felt exhilarated at first. and the pain of at least a decade was a shadow rather unrelenting agony. I haven't had any of these side effects. I still have pain, and finally am able to run again. My life's improved.

I started this for fibromyalgia pain. Its not what I have been on for years. And the first thing I noticed was just that it made me feel really tired off of just one 75mg pill a day. I thought it would pass and my doctor after two weeks of me taking it brought it down to 50mg. None the less he wanted me to start taking them from the beginning three times a day. He also started me on Cymbalta at the same time. Now its been a three weeks and for the past 6 days I've had diarrhea. I can't focus my eyes on anything for very long because I get dizzy. My eyes hurt really bad if I look at lights from the television or the living room or my computer for very long. I've been extremely tired not tired I'm going to fall asleep but tired I can't do a thing because my body just wants to rest. I'M URGING YOU DOCTORS TO THINK TWICE BEFORE PRESCRIBING LYRICA OR CYMBALTA TO YOUR PATIENTS - It has caused me to feel like I am agitated and want to hit someone, hurt someone, hurt myself, throw something at the wall. I haven't done any of those things thank God. Except be really abusive with my language. But these drugs can literally make you feel so much like you are not yourself that you want to cause something as much pain as you are feeling or just end it. I've also been feeling like I might faint the last couple of days. I don't drink alcohol ever or smoke pot or any hard drugs so none of that is interfering with my treatment.

Thank you for posting this. Couldn't understand why I was feeling so bad,  like throwing myself under a truck as I walked in the street. Googled side effects of Lycria and found this, came straight off them and was feeling better within 24 hours. Luckily I wasn't on them long enough to get hooked.

Noel Dempsey The guy is definitely a pig not some kind of hero. It is illegal to obtain a medication under false pretenses. Sharing medication is illegal. Selling it is illegal, unethical thievery. I could to prison for a year for very accidentally taking a pair of reading glasses. Lyrica is expensive. If he sells this medication at or above cost, each time he gets the medication is illegal/a crime. Each transaction/sale is a crime. The value of each prescription is insurance fraud. These all multiply with each prescription obtained. What he's doing is felonious and hurts those who legitimately try to get this medication and others. The trafficking of opiates, benzodiazepines, tranquilizers, amphetamines, and many muscle relaxants have caused MANY people with a genuine need of such medications to no longer have access to them. Yay, your hero.

Not totally honest, if you notice when they get to the side effects the volume gets lower, no mention of Hair Loss or Loss of LIBIDO? Nor do they tell you the drug was originally for Elipisey seizures. As is Gabapentin. NEW TO MARKET is Savella, not yet in the ad campaign phase. Gabapentin is a much older Elipisey drug is the only reason you are not seeing ads for it.
Gail6344 (4 года назад)
You know you  all of you have a RIGHT to refuse to take this nasty drug? Just because your doctor is pushing it, does not mean they are current on the side effects or the problems with the drug. You get a useless computer at the FDA bad drug hot line. It is the latest fad in treatment of FMS. That is Not understood. It is Hormone tied, starts earlier than researchers think. Try puberty. Then the stiffness and pain are low usually 1 area and not as noticed by a 10 yr old, they just learn to go around it, as it is in some one at Peri Menopause/Menopause age range.

I have all the awful side effects. My weight gain and swelling were rapid and dramatic. So, too, was my decrease in pain and emergence of suicidality. I feel trapped. I was taken off narcs that worked. Without Lyrica, I will surely kill myself from the pain. If I stay on it, I will surely succumb to the horrific side effects. Now my eyes are blurring and I am having weird muscle movements. Dreadful insomnia. Been up 5 days. I told the neurologist of my suicidality and she doubled my dose and quadrupled my weight problem. People, I eat the exact same thing every day. I am a mess. No one will listen. Even told a therapist!! I am on 150 mg twice a day. I have fibromyalgia and CRPS type 2, stage 3. A month ago I weighed 125. Now, 140. I am in recovery from anorexia. Well, not anymore. I have the mind of an anorexic and the body of a whale. I know I choose to take each pill, but when I have stopped my pain feels worse than ever. Not sure I want to see 40. I must. It is the day of my daughter's graduation. May 22. Is visual blurring a side effect? So blurry,

And Lyrica sends me to the ER with 1 pill. I just had my 8th seizure med, it was a bust too. Back to the Neurologist. I fear a lot of my eye issues is not just the nicked nerve in the left eye from a badly done and wrong cataract lens, but the Peripheral Neuropathy that effects my entire right side.

Yes, along with the edible stuff, but it is still illegal in my state and federal, I'm to old to risk what little I have to break those laws.You can not even import such products in. I tried to order an oil and the company denied the order. Yes he is a 'piece of work' we find a mammoth oil find in TX yet he is dead set on not drilling in the US, and keeping us slaves to Muslim oil companies. DRILL THE USA and create good jobs, it can be done correctly so as not to destroy the environment, we've learned a lot in the last decade, Build more refinery's  too, not built one since the 70's. What does a Community Organizer know about business, law, trade, or Patriotism, all I've seen in the past 8 yrs is chaos and an increase in crime rate along with abortion in the black community a break down in businesses and a 2 parent family, more on welfare which is poverty.  And giving our health care to those who did not pay into it or earn it. Every weekend Canadians flock across the border to shop, traffic miles long. Their taxation is so ruinously high to provide a socialist style life. Which when you reach a certain age they want you to commit suicide or refuse you proper health care. Happened to a aunt in law who was a Canadian.Most come across into the US for serious medical care.

It caused MORE PAIN in hands, feet and spine with two 50 mg tabs, sample packs, so they when to the pharmacy to be disposed of properly. It is one of the most complained about drugs on the Patient Boards along with Osteoporosis drugs for side effects.

Lyrica did not stop the pain from my fybromyalgie, it just made me too stoned to care. It also made me to stoned to do anything. For example picking up a drink to take a sip became almost impossible as I could not get my brain to send to correct nerve signals to the correct spots. This lasted about a week and then the side effects got less, but my reaction time to anything was still at least tripled and I became an emotionless ghost. And still it was not killing pains. We tried higher doses and still it did nothing but make me a ghost.  Thus I decided to stop using it. I didn't get any withdrawal symptoms, but than I have quit several other pain killing drugs cold turkey without  withdrawal systems, so that's probably something that my body just does good. I don't recommend trying lyrica until you've tried every other possibility, but if nothing else is working go give it a try and see how your body reacts to it. I've know several other people who used it effects all of us differently. However I firmly believe that it should be: Do not drive or operate heavy machinery while under this drug. Ever! Not even after having been on it for like a year.

Lyrica is an evil drug and the Pharmo thugs are more then willing to bribe doctors to push that stuff. I feel sorry for those have Fibromyalgia, but life sucks. Because these greedy SOB's are just frothing at the mouth to get cash money to feed their spending addictions; they hand out kickbacks to doctors like parade marchers do candy to children. Yes some doctors are enough on their own, but they usually need monetary encouragement to enable their foolish actions. If you haven't already read all the horrific stories about what this this stuff does, you should. Heck, you are on a Google website anyways. Anyhow, you are wondering why this is any concern to me. To keep it short and sweet, many years ago my mom had an injury, had surgery to correct. The pain specialist that was treating her was obviously in debt so they started sucking on the teat of Pfizer by pumping my mom with this poison. Her health started get worse, found out it was the Lyrica. Got medically withrawn off it, yet it pretty much changed for the worse. Thank you Pfizer, you have ruined my family's life, and pretty much every holiday for the past 5 year.

I hate this drug. I have taken it for nerve pain, and while it killed the pain I was suffering from, it is ruining my eyesight and I can not quit because of horrific withdrawals. I am currently tapering over the course of YEARS because of the withdrawal that is way worse than morphine or clonazepam ever was to me. It has also caused me general malaise and cramps/aches all over + suicidal ideation. I would not recommend this drug to anyone as there are much less addictive options that has been tried and true. That being said, if it works, it seems to work wonders. Unfortunately, for me, the side effects + horrific withdrawal far outweighs any benefit this drug has done. My 2 cents, hope it has helped your decision making.

Wow!  I sure wish my pain management had told about THIS side effect (the withdrawal effects) BEFORE I started taking it about a year and a half ago!!  I've suffered with debilitating pain for over two decades now.  Since "they" have taken all of our opiate medications away from us, THIS is what they prescribed for me!  I already went through about two years of very slow withdrawal from morphine, which I had taken for at LEAST 15 years.  THAT was bad enough!!  WHY don't "they" tell us these things BEFORE we start taking something like this???!  I hope you are doing okay........I know it's been three years since you wrote this comment.  You will DEFINITELY be in my prayers (and I MEAN that when I say it!)!!!

Drugs that require a slow weaning on/off of them raise RED flags for me.  I pursued something relatively unknown for pain management that worked immediately.  Anyone suffering from chronic pain should research and investigate Trigger Point therapy.  There are different forms of-- I had great success with Procaine injections performed by my Naturopath, with 50% reduction in pain in 24hrs first treatment and a 75% reduction in pain in 72 hours.  After two months being unable to move without shreaking, I am up, walking and working on recovery.  Chronic pain is NO joke.  There is a place for medication but for short-term, emergency use.

Come on people, I am taking Lyrica, at the moment, but you seem to be talking as if taking these drugs is compulsory! just stop taking them if you don't like them and deal with your pain in your own way!
Nigel Hancock (4 года назад)
just sent this email to MRHADear Sir  I was diagnosed as having polyneuropathy   6 months ago and advised to use Lyrica by my GP 3 weeks ago. I have had 3 weeks of absolute hell with this medication, and in my opinion it needs taking off the prescribed drugs list for the UK. I have gained weight,Have back pain, I have memory loss , dry skin, blurred vision, headaches, loss of balance, dry mouth and feeling suicidal at present. I have been to my GP this morning and he has suggested I stop taking them. This medication is really awful. I have also noticed how many other users have had problems with this medication seeing posts from online forums etc.  I would be grateful if you could pass this message on to whoever it may concern. It really is a nightmare and it made no improvements to my condition. I feel angry that I have been subjected to this so called medication. I find it hard to believe this substance is being used by any healthcare professional

 LYRICA http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/brain-and-nervous-system/medicines/lyrica.html, it was given for fibromyalgia muscle pain and is being tested on humans for Peripheral Neuopathy pain which a lot of diabetics suffer from or those like me who have Fat Pad Atrophy in my feet, which causes PN in my legs. No cure for that, silicone injections are on trial in the lab but not yet available to public, Well from breast implants we know all to well what silicone side effects do to people. I'm sure we all have a few pounds of fat we could spare they could spare to try an implant in your feet.

What is so honest about this ad? I did not hear anything about the loss of Libdio, hair loss or extreme pain in joints? One  50 mg tab first struck my hands with extreme pain, in about 30 mins, second pill hit my entire back. Rest of the trial sample went in the trash! This is not a drug for FMS or Peripheral Neuopathy , it is a EPILEPSY drug for seizures. I have FMS, I don't need all the side effects this drug causes. Dig deep into the blogs to find the truth, do not except the manufacture's stuff as truth. There is no mention of JOINT pain. FIRST DO NO HARM is about using patients, especially children as human guinea pigs is older but no less true. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/liveonline/02/health/health052102.htm

I'm at the same point. Lyrica makes me really foggy and my appetite has gone through the roof. Tried to come off it twice and failed HORRIBLY both times. Not half as bad as cymbalta withdrawals (I still don't know how I got through those couple of months. It was probably the worst period of my life) but still really awful

Has anyone experienced weight gain with Lyrica?
Michael Dempsey (3 месяца назад)
I have in fact lost weight. Not much of an appetite. The sedation and "unsteady" feeling goes away after a few weeks. It's a much "cleaner " drug than gabapentin, which I had been on for years. A "smoother ride" is how I put it to my Dr., who, by the way, didn't push it on me, I asked him to try it. 400 mg a day, (200 2x daily). I stopped it for a week to see what would happen and the neuropathy symptoms came back ( burning , prickly skin feeling.) That's all. Maybe too many drama queens on these sites?

After so many drug reactions, I'm not willing to try a drug that is in my system more than 72 hrs and I can pitch. Start using samples when you treat me, give me a Script I can then shred if it a reaction drug. Fosamax supposedly mild side effects, did a number on bone & joint, pain, Acid Reflux over rode the 80 mg of Nexium, and shut my bowel DOWN with just the sample pack. Doctor never mentioned the FDA warnings on this class of OP drugs. FDA ALERT RECLAST higher risk of Kidney Failure and A Fib http://www.natap.org/2011/newsUpdates/090911_03.htm Safety update for osteoporosis drugs, bisphosphonates, and atypical fractures http://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/drugsafetypodcasts/ucm229800.htm Information for Healthcare Professionals: Bisphosphonates (marketed as Actonel, Actonel+Ca, Aredia, Boniva, Didronel, Fosamax, Fosamax+D, Reclast, Skelid, and Zometa) And to those who do not understand, just because it is a cream, gel, patch or IV it still gets in your blood stream, thus into your gut!

I had a sample pack of just a week, by day 3 it was in the garbage due to the INCREASE in BONE and JOINT pain. FMS has enough pain you don't want more pain. FAILURE rate is 50% because of side effects! WEIGHT GAIN IS ONLY 1 issue with this drug. Loss of your SEX life is another. These are ELIPISEY SEIZURE DRUGS! Lyrica anti-epileptic http://www.rxlist.com/lyrica-side-effects-drug-center.htm  Often used beside Lyrica.

Hi Lou, do you mean your weight gain or your use of Lyrica?
Gail Honadle (4 года назад)
+Linda Hutchinson MY PN comes from the loss of fat tissue in the soles of my feet, I walk bone on nerve, can't even walk a stress test, they have found no way to replace the lost fat tissue your feet normally have. Silicone comes with it's own  risky side effects. But the Valium does help stop the leg pain and cramps to a higher degree with no real side effects, than any thing else that has been tried, and I've tried them all.
Anthony Piccolo (4 года назад)
I just started Lyrica 2 weeks ago I am now up to 100mg a day. I have lateral spinal stenosis, and seizures, so far early in the drug not really any side affects yet (knock on wood), but walking is still a nightmare, I use a walker but the nerves pinched off affect my left leg starts in hip and goes down by the time it reaches my calves my leg and feet start to tingle. I also suffer depression bi-polar and suicidal tendencies which is one of the side effects, so I really don't know if I should b taking this. I have been on other pain meds that don't work. I am now waiting to c second surgeon this time a neurosurgeon but as my gp said he doesn't think im a candidate for surgery, I was already turned down by an orthopedic surgeon who believes there would be more harm than good, so then I moved on to epidural steroid cortisone shots 3 rounds of that and I got worse my L2 and L3 r bone on bone and my L4 and L5 have ruptured further. I appreciate anyones comments as a patient but also comments from a professional. Thank you

Seaquil is 150 mg. i'm am 44 years old . I'm so sorry for the loss of your father, mine pass May21, 2011 pancreatic cancer, I know its tough. Not sure if its true but I have been hearing things, like i'm Canadian and persons trying to get to the US because of stuff on their record like a recent suicide attempt and your drug history, its all very disturbing, but there is no way around it. I am grateful for persons like yourselves that will fight tooth and nail for their patients, which I dont think you think of them as patients rather people in need. Thank you for your service :)
Summer Dais (2 года назад)
Anthony Piccolo Perhaps 100 mg Seroquel? I have never heard of a 10 mg prescription. I dislike electronic records.This causes more problems for people with issues of chronicity, especially those having a problem getting diagnosed. If they've had documented psychiatric problems, all too frequently these patients will be treated dismissively, not given proper work-ups, or, alternately, invasive, needless, repetitive testing for something already diagnosed. It really bothers me that I am not treated with the same respect I always gave my patients. I fought tooth and nail to make certain patients felt their problem had been taken seriously and understood, the patient's pain adequately addressed. I am glad to hear you aren't on Lyrica. The risks usually outweigh potential benefits when one has bipolar, depression, and a history of suicidality, especially if there as been a previous attempt or any ongoing ideation. I have spinal stenosis and disk destruction at several levels of my spine and neck. I have a history of urethral stenosis. My dad died August 1. I am the only woman of my age I have seen at the urologist. Older women were with their husbands. People assumed I was taking my "elderly" father. So, rare as this is for females I have not been able to void. I probably need surgery again. May I ask your age?
Anthony Piccolo (2 года назад)
No I got off those awhile back. Now its 150mg of Seraquil 10 mg Nabilone, Fluoxatine clonasapam and 1800mg/day Gabapentin. Once in awhile i'm still having the urinating problem, but that could be attributed to my spinal stenosis L2, L3, bone on bone L4 L5 ruptured, and S1, S2 ruptured, i was told if i ever couldnt pee, go to ER i need an emergancy cathater. This is the biggest problem when u have physical problems and emotional ones they tend to blame each other, and then u start slipping through the cracks. I fully agree that yes some syptoms one can get, can be psychosematic and lets say u r not a regular visiting the ER again. I think if i'm having sympotms it deserved to be checked, and not dismissed cause my file list emotional disorders. Thank you so much for taking an interest and replying I am truly grateful. Take care

+Anthony Piccolo Please research Benfotiamine.It is a synthetic B1 created in Japan in the 1950's for Diabetics,for polyneuropathy,and to protect the eyes,kidneys,and limbs . I don't believe that you have to be diabetic to have this help. This supplement,unlike Thiamin,is fat soluble so it stays in your system much longer. It is very affordable as well. Swanson has it for $6.99.There's a lot of info out there. IF YOU DO DECIDE TO GO OFF LYRICA DO IT WITH MEDICAL SUPERVISION.You probably can take the Benfotiamine anyway as it is a Vitamin and not a drug. Check it out! Also check out the symtoms of Thiamine and other B vitamin deficencys as that might be a factor in the tingling and depression. Just take the doses recommended though as high doses are not without risks.
Carolyn Hagl (4 года назад)
Yes I was given a pack by my GP without any warnings.  Wouldn't it be better just to take paracetamol or codeine?  Without all those horrendous side effects. I had the cold shivers at night and waking up in a panic in the morning.  Not worth it.
Tracy Conaghan (5 лет назад)
So I've been taking this and now I am up to 100mg twice daily.  Unfortunately I've started coming awake at 3am where I am boiling, then I'm freezing and I am agitated and can't get comfortable and I don't know what to do with myself.  Anyone else have this?  It last for about 2 hours.

L0vingLifeEveryday (5 лет назад)
Every drug has a long list of side effects just like this one. They're require to list everything they've encountered during their trials, and everyone reacts different to a medication so it creates a long list of side effects. Everyone is quick to take Advil, Tylenol, Aleve, etc. without thinking anything of it. Have you ever looked in at the side effects?
Heru- deshet (5 лет назад)
It's scary that the time to explain the negative side effects is longer than the benefits. After listening to it, why take it? My wife has nerve pain from diabetes. Metanx has helped her immensely. I think Lyrica would kill her.
Tracy Conaghan (5 лет назад)
I have a torn rotator cuff, nerve damage in my wrist and arm and the dr thinks possibly my sciatic nerve is being pinched to my leg.  I just got prescribed this lastnight as I am trying to come off of the Oxycodone I've been on for 3 years.  I'm on a low dosage and no where near addicted, but the Sleep clinic says the Oxy can interfere with sleep.  so right now. I take 25mg of Lyrica in the morning and at night, along with my regular oxy for 7 days. next week I go to 50mg twice a day and drop the oxy by 10mg a day for 7days then I go to 75mg lyrica twice a day, and 10mg oxy twice a day for 7 days... and then I guess the plan is to drop the oxy for the fourth week and the dosage of lyrica will be adjusted accordingly. A few things I find interesting after speaking with the pharmacist is that the oxy does not last the full 12 hours so this is why I have to take T3 in the the afternoon.  I'm willing to take the Lyrica and see what happens. If you read up on any medication you take out there you will see the same warning and reactions.  I don't see where Lyrica is any more dangerous on paper than any other pill out there.  I'm fortunate not to have become addicted to the Oxy, but I know a lot of people who did.  And someone here posted that they work in a medical office and Lyrica is addicting.. That's incorrect according the the doctor and pharmacist lyrica is not habit forming.  I feel a little light headed today, have taken 2 doses of Lyrica so far.  I'm going to keep trying this med
Gail Honadle (4 года назад)
When I was first put on this NASTY drug by my Pain Specialist, he was a older doc about to retire, so had seen more than his share of pain management issues. When the sales reps starting hyping it, their entire pain management group was ecstatic. Until a few months later 50% of patients opted out because of the HORRENDOUS side effects. He the prescribed 10 mg Vallium twice a day, any more and it is addictive. I can lay it down any day as long as I want to live with the muscle pain, it also clears up the FMS Mind Fog. The success or failure rate should be listed on every drug script or former script ones. BTW there is NO HUMAN BEING AT THE HARD TO USE BAD DRUG HOT LINE, and they ignore the down loaded forms send them to the shredder, When a State Reps, case worker cannot find a human at the hard to use computer system you know they are not LISTENING to the public. Which is why Blogs are going up reporting this junk as bad medicine.  FIRST DO NO HARM is about using patients, especially children as human guinea pigs is older but no less true. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/liveonline/02/health/health052102.htm

one of the side effects of Lyrica is sleeplessness, mind fog and SUICIDE .
Tracy Conaghan (4 года назад)
Thank you for your information I really appreciate it.  The meds have stabled out a bit and i find that as long as i take the dosage by 6pm i dont get ansy and agitated during the night anymore... My dr. wrote a prescription for Lorazepam to help with the agitation and subsequent panic attacks as well.
Tracy Conaghan (5 лет назад)
+Heru- deshet thank you for the information. so far I feel ok with Lyrica, and I've been sleeping better.  I was on Cymbalta but had terrible nightmares, we also tried Effexor and I had brain tremors.  Fingers crossed that this works for me.
Heru- deshet (5 лет назад)
Ask your doctor about anti-depressive pain therapy. It raises your threshold for pain. This therapy works over time as it allows your body to heal with the release of endorphins without the side effects (including possible liver function deterioration with long term use) of oxy. I was severely injured in a car accident with very similar injuries to yours and it did wonders for me. It has also worked in patients with chronic pain due to disease. Good luck.
Sally Raspin (5 лет назад)
I had Epstein Barr virus, Ross River fever, then probably chronic fatigue, although undiagnosed(too tired to go to the doctor) followed by about 6 years of misdiagnoses until fibromyalgia was diagnosed. I tried every naturaphic alternative and finally gave in to pregalbin. It doesn't get rid of all the pain, but helps with sleep, so more energy. No side effects that I'm conscious of yet. Its almost 14 years since I initially got sick, so I'm grateful - so far.
John Sabp (5 лет назад)
ok. I just told you that I have degeneration of the spine. I have lyme disease which you probably need to watch some videos of. I have suffered a great deal. Lyme disease litteraly destroys the central nervous system. I am sorry you have pain as well. Lyrica is a bad medication. Don't insult me or other people further. You are not the only one suffering and people have different opinions. Calm down. you come off as an asshole or bitch. you diabetic fuck
musicpianoman (5 лет назад)
If you have a disc pinching on your sciatic nerve, you have to get treated asap to relieve the nerve otherwise you could end up with nerve damage. Arrange to see an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in back surgery and pain. A respectful surgeon will recommend conservative measures first before doing surgery, if it's not urgent.
musicpianoman (5 лет назад)
Opiates does not alleviate painful neuropathy! Lyrica does in most cases. Opiates would only be a supplemental drug at best for painful neuropathy. I am not talking about fibromyalgia here or some temporary condition like sciatica. I'm talking about irreversible raw pain damage to nerves which can result from diabetes, Trigeminal neuralgia , or from surgery where nerves were injured/severed. Lyrica has been a god send for me and many others. I couldn't live without the medication or equivalent.
musicpianoman (5 лет назад)
Where's the nerve damage? Most people have no idea what painful neuropathy is! Diabetic neuropathy and Trigeminal neuropathy are extreme forms of pain. Anyone stating that they prefer the pain and recommending pumping iron,dancing and aerobics in place of prescription medication to control severe neuropathy is not only uninformed but acting irresponsible. It is greatly insulting to those that truly suffer from painful neuropathy! You would understand this if you had these conditions.

well on top of having lyme disease and complications from flagyl and especially levaquin. don't ever take levaquin. I had back surgery at 17 for a herniated disk so I would say anywhere from a 7 to 8 currently I rather watch my diet and or be dependant on opiates. Lyrica is bad news. I gained 50 pounds on it. It is next to impossible to stop. It give me memory loss, constant fatgue, I am dull. All I am saying is don't insult people. We are all suffering. I feel like my skin is on fire at times

musicpianoman (5 лет назад)
You obviously don't suffer from nerve damage b/c if you did you would be on begging to take medications like lyrica. Your response is insulting and juvenile to those who suffer from neuropathy.

Find a chiropractor in your area who has a Spinal Decompression machine in his/her office. Check into this treatment which is 90%-plus effective (back surgery is only 60% effective).. Six years ago, I had a bulging disc, 2 herniated discs and 2 ruptured discs in my lower back. I took these totally pain-free treatments and now have very little pain in my lower back. Unfortunately insurance wouldn't pay for these treatments but would pay for surgery - go figure.
Mitzylu (5 лет назад)
My sister takes 450 mg of Lyrica per day for debilitating back pain and neuropathy. I started taking 150 mg of Lyrica per day about 6 weeks ago for fibromyalgia pain. Soon after starting Lyrica, my feet, ankles, lower legs and hands started swelling, eventually developing blisters which oozed moisture; extremely painful. I stopped the Lyrica and will soon start a regimen of herbal supplements for the fibro pain. My point: some people can take Lyrica, some can't. Please use common sense.
Dee Patterson (5 лет назад)
Do not stop taking Lyrica cold turkey. I've been on Lyrica for the past 6 years and have suffered through the horrible side effects (blurred vision, walking slanted, running into things, swollen hands/feet, weight gain/loss). But as soon as I stop I feel horrible. What other medication is out there for pain that isn't addictive? Dr's are cutting down on giving patients anything that is addictive Trying to find pain relief that works, also doing Yoga, aerobics, weight lifting, walking etc.

I work in a clinic where this is prescribed. Expensive drug and there are major side effects. I appreciated the comments describing the various side effects. I cannot help but wonder if some of the agressive comments are brought on by this drug which can be addictive. Should be saved for VERY serious injury, etc, not your garden-variety pain.

No more for me , thank you.

My Dr told me to stay off the internet when I look up a drug for side affects. Now I see why. She dosnt want me to know the truth. I refused to take lyrica after a week. Just couldn't do nothing but sleep. Tell your boss that and see how long you have your job.
Sandy Kieth (5 лет назад)
You have to decrease it slowly. I was on it and to get off I had to cut back 10mgs a week till I was off it. I think all Drs should take the meds they prescribe before they give it to anyone. Then they cant say its not that bad and you will get use to it.
Sandy Kieth (5 лет назад)
I tried lyrica for a week. I did nothing but sleep 16 hours a day. Of course I had no pain I was unconscious. I have a web sight that sends me med alerts and it said that they were stopping trials for Fibromyalgia and nerve pain from diabities nerve pain because it didn't work. I have nerve damage from gall bladder surgery and am taking percs and fentanyl patches. Have some relief but the patches have to be increased slowly. Alcohol nerve block was screwed up now permanent nerve damage.

Different strokes, I have 1 lyrica at night to relieve the pain in my lower back and the resultant referred nerve pain that radiates down my left leg. This pain is caused by Spondylolisthesis, pars fractures in L5 which allows the Vertebra to shift forward creating huge pain. Lyrica works for me,the only side effect is a little drowsiness.
