How long do lyrica withdrawal symptoms last

Common Questions and Answers about How long do lyrica withdrawal symptoms last


5100586 tn?1363648354 I was on lyrica 400mg per day for nearly 10 yrs. I remember feeling very tired & sluggish at first but that eventually went away. What I was left with was a total lack of emotion - a bland easy going personality, which wasn't me! Slept well though. Then they told me I had had a misdiagnosis & there was nothing wrong with me!! ( I'd always thought that) Getting off it is absolute hell.
Avatar m tn It's three weeks for me Now and I went from 300 mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> a day to 50 mg. Should I just not Take any more? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> in the heck <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>do</span> you handle it? This is the worst thing I have ever experienced as it never ends!
Avatar m tn Well I got dyskinesia within two weeks, jerking of the body, hazing in and out not able to read unable to walk. This <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span> is brutal, all the other ones took just a couple of days I'm almost up to 30 days and I thought I was getting better and today I'm sicker than ever! Any help for anybody with be greatly appreciated, and if anyone has gone through this does it end?

Avatar n tn Can anyone who has done a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> wean tell me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> to best go down from 25mg? I dropped from 75 to 50, then to 38mg , then to 30. last week I went down to 25mg. I'm quite nauseated and have experienced palpatitations. I knew I'd have hightened nerve pain but didn't expect the aforementioned symptoms, while on a slow weaning down period. I'm wondering if it's safe to drop to 20mg after one week of 25, or is it too soon? Any suggestions or personal experiences would greatly be appreciated.
Avatar n tn for any CII script filled, so the most you could fill at one time was 100 tablets, capsules, patches, etc., but no restriction on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> that had to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span> - you could fill one every day if the situation required it. The question of upper dose is nearly always up to the judgement of the prescriber. There are often administrative limits by insurance or whoever is paying (e.g., Medicare), though those most often are aimed at controlling costs more than they are concerned with therapeutic value.
Avatar f tn Taking 10 30mg per day for 2 months, 6-7 30mg for two months,prior to that using 5-10 Norco 10/325 for 18 months. Can anyone estimate <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> the major withdrawals will <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span> if I go cold turkey? I am so terrified but have GOT to do this now. I have Clonodine, Clonazepam, Ambien, Neurontin and lyrica to help me through. I am scared I will die. I've heard anywhere from 5days of hell to a whole month. Can anyone who's been on a similar dose help me with an estimate? grateful to hear from anyone.
Avatar n tn Is taking 1mg of xanex to help she didn't know she was in trouble, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> would you expect the withdrawral to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span> would the aleve help.
Avatar f tn I already withdrew from oxys and that was the worst of the worst. But I didn't know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> would cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span>. Have you ever abused <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span>? Thanks for writing back. I really appreciate it. I'm new here and I was afraid no one would even answer me. At least you and Ella saw my distress.
Avatar f tn It's kind of slow around here this time of night, but hopefully someone with more experience with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span> and tips on managing it will be along soon. Good luck to you and take care!
Avatar n tn I did this mostly so I could take a decent **** by the time morning came around. So I planned it out to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>do</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span> little bunch yesterday morning. It wasn't much at all and I felt a little sick early on but nothing major. Just a little sweating and stuff. I came home and slept for like 17 hours. I woke up and felt friggin great! I worked out this morning. None of the chills, malaise, cramps, restless legs...nothing. Just feel fine.
Avatar f tn I know that this has been from various causes, including an infection, but I hadn't been able to come up with a reason for the way I've felt off and on for the past week. Now I'm wondering if it could be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span> from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span>. For the past year I've been on 100 mg lyrica twice a day. It's been a good while since I've thought it was helping with the burning neuropathic pain I've had, especially at night. Also, I'm gaining weight no matter what I do.
986593 tn?1283535811 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> include restlessness, insomnia, and anxiety. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> are similar to benzodiazepine withdrawal but the severity of the withdrawal depends on how much pregabalin has been taken and how long it has been taken. Pregabalin should be reduced gradually when finishing treatment.
Avatar f tn I WISH I didn't have to take them, I really do but I'm a single mom and I have no other choice, I have to work. My Pyschiatrist put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span> night, so I'm hoping that this combined with the Vicodin will help, although today has been hell....I only started the lyrica last night but I woke up this AM feeling like someone beat me up over night....I could have cried I hurt so bad....
Avatar n tn Can anyone tell me how long these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> will <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span>???? I'm trying to be strong and not get another refill someone give me hope this won't last forever....
333612 tn?1302886990 For example, people taking morphine, hydromorphone, or oxycodone may experience withdrawal symptoms within 6 to 12 hours of the last dose while people taking methadone will experience <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> 3 to 4 days after the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span> dose. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> many <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> you experience, how long you experience them, and how severe your symptoms are depends on your body’s individual response, how long you’ve been taking the medications and the dose and type of opioid.
559187 tn?1330786456 I really appreciate knowing that I wasn't the only one with these strange <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> did you take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> before you decided to go off it? I think for now I'll stay on it to be sure that this is or isn't right for me. however, I don't want to stay too long because the side effects are uncomfortable. Thanks again for sharing your experiences with it. It was very helpful.
Avatar m tn Hey Debbie, I've been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> for years almost as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> as the OxyContin. Not too much at first 150mg a day. It really helped with the leg pain at the time. After my nerve root injury it really increased like I said up to 600mg a day, which is twice the recommended dose. It really helped my leg pain but I got very depressed on it. After a couple of years the nerve healed some, the sciatic nerve takes a long time to heal, and I was finally able to wean myself back down to 300mg.
610505 tn?1329607323 nausea, chills, yawning, lose stools....etc...etc.) To be honest, I'd rather have that then what I'm going though just being the low dose. This is the worst drug to get off of.....theyre not lying. Ive heard some people had to go back on their drug of choice until the subs out of their brain and then withdrawal from there. I just dont know what to do. My Sub Dr.
Avatar m tn Hi. I found this site on my phone when searching on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> for Oxycodone. I am 43 years old, live in NE Ohio, I am a web developer, graphic artists, etc. I work from home. In early 2010 I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer and polyposis. My options were few, I had to have my entire large intestine (colon) and rectum removed. I would be getting an ileostomy (poop bag). Before this, I did chemo 7 days a week, and radiation 5 days a week, both for 5 weeks straight.
Avatar n tn so am looking (and looked) for ms contin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span> and for the lowest dose i am on (15 mg) if i will get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> or not or if i just have to do it and see. any info will be greatly appreciated.
4544656 tn?1371597148 I just started to get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span> dose drop. I had severe anxiety. I realized it was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span>. I decided to split my dose up into thirds and spread throughout the day. This seems to be working so far. I was just wondering if anyone else has had problems getting off gaba?
Avatar f tn If I were you, I would research everything u can about the w/ds, what are the typical w/d <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> it lasts and see if u can manage it. If you start feeling really horrible, you could always go to an ER. I know that sounds drastic, but at the very least, they can check out whats going on with your body and maybe keep you at the hospital just until you get stable. Or they can refer you to a new doctor. They won't just let you walk out if you are in acute w/ds.

Avatar n tn I just want anormal life back and so I can just deal with morning sickness rather than having the flu, a water infection and major <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> from a drug, I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>do</span> not think should be given out without serious <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> consideration from the doctor and being told about its effects on your life. A copy of people,s statements of trying to come off should be given aswell. My doctor has given me no help whatsoever even though I have tried suicide in the past.
Avatar n tn however, he has these vomiting spells. Sometimes it's only once, other times, like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span> night, he goes on all night <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>. Is this normal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span>? He does have an extra sensitive stomach (perhaps from doing so many drugs) and vomiting isn't out of the ordinary for him. But I am concerned that maybe there is something more seriously wrong. Any feedback is welcome. Also, I have been reading the posts about Oxy withdrawal and want to put in a few words.
