I'm about to try to stop taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span>. I've been taking a VERY high dosage the past couple of weeks or so (1600mg a day at the minimum) and just a little lower dosage before that.

Been addicted to everything I've taken that gives me any small measure of euphoria or lesser anxiety... never benzos though.
Hi I have been on 75mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> at bedtime for over 3months and I could not get my rx refilled so I have been off the medication now for five days and I am sweating like a life guard on a beach in Florida.

What can I do to help myself with all these meds I need to work and live my life.Thanks for the help.....

I was just put on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span>, the doc thinks I might have Fibro...I have all the symptoms that go along with it...I have noticed though over the last week since I've been taking it that my anxiety has increased and it feels like my heart is beating faster....I have always been on Xanax for anxiety ( last 4 yrs. ) but I haven't had to use it as much until lately...or could this just be a symptom of Fibro since it's really flared up due to the cold weather?
Hi guys, I was just wondering if any of you have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> and come off of it having withdrawal symptoms? I started weaning off of it around 3 weeks ago and a week into just backing off from 300mg to 225mg I started feeling exhausted and my blood pressure took a dive sending me to the doctors office. She said my system is not regulating my blood pressure like it should and she thinks it's the lyrica causing it.
I am diabetic and have been prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> for nerve pain. I am hearing contradictory opinions about the safety of lyrica in a recovering addict. I would rather live with the pain than relapse. Has anyone had any experience with this?
First, I'm not a doctor, so I don't want to give advice - just information. I also have Fibromyalgia and am taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> was developed for diabetic neurapathy, then authorized for treating FMS. I have a lot of other issues that cause pain (ddd, spinal stenosis, severe arthritis) and I've taken a lot of pain meds and gone through withdrawl for things like Hydrocodone, Percocet, and even Methadone. Second only to Methadone, lyrica was the worst to withdraw from!
Neurontin and Trileptal I didn't take it long b/c I noticed nothing. I just started taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> 75mg 3x a day started about almost 2 weeks ago. I am confused b/c I know that lyrica can cause some really big side effects and I can't tell if I am having w/d from detoxing off of fentanyl or is it lyrica. I know it causes major weight gain and I don't need that. I know a girl who has been on it for a year and has my same med. problems.
replace them with 2 -- <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> 75mg. I'm still on 3--.5mg xanax as well as prozac /heart pills and prevacid .I never use more than prescribed .Should I just deal with life without meds .I'm having trouble going to NA & AA because I still feel like I'm useing. I have been clean of my addiction drug for 6 months . Am I fooling myself thinking I won't abuse these new " "Prescribed "meds. Is lyrica addictive? it has seemed to help with my nerve twitching and pain.
When I first started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> I immediately experienced <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>euphoria</span>. It was great, I felt wonderful, almost like being high! I again experience it whenever the dosage is increased. This euphoric feeling went away in a short period of time which was disappointing. However, I have found that it still continues to help in a more normal way. My energy level is better than before, I have less pain and my mood is also better.
He is thrilled that the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> has done so well for me and that I managed to get out working and take back my life. He doesn't want me going any higher than the 300 mg per day I'm at now. he pushed for the weight loss and even thinks he could get me off of the lyrica eventually. I asked him about all the swelling and the memory issues. He says swelling is not due to lyrica (it is clearly stated as a side effect) and he says as we continue treatment that my memory issues will go away.
i took neuronton for fibro and was good for restless leg syd my dose went up to 3 300 milligram a day i went into bipolar swings from happy to sad within hours 2 pills no side effects 3 total mental illness same thing with lyrica its cousin.
Side effects typically take a fair bit longer to fade away than the time it takes for lyrica to start working on the pain, and this means some amount of patience is required, in order to test what the long term side-effects are likely to be, ie the side effects that stay while using <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span>. I've used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> for more than two years now, and at several different doses.
How could you feel like using when you only take 1-2 tablets per day. Do you get a feeling of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>euphoria</span> from vicodin? If I were you I would leave the vics alone and try Ibuprofen for pain, Your back condition and future consultation with your M.D., a pain management specialist I hope. Will determine what type of treatment is right for you. There are other drugs that are non opioid, such as lyrica that you could take for nerve pain.
Recently, my new (3 mos) pain doc took me off of tramadol which just left me with morphine, percoset and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> to deal with 24/7/365 pain. At month end I was low on meds and resorted to "street drugs" which turned up in a drug screen at a doctor's visit. I now have to detox with just clonodine and lyrica which just won't manage my pain. It sure would be nice if the DEA would stay out of our business and doctors would prescribe adequate medication both pre and post operatively.
5 per day and eventually got to an average of 6 to 8 per day. I started on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> about 1 month ago and I think I really like it (although I can't be completely sure since I take so many pills). I am really tired of being hooked on the pills and taking more than I am supposed to and then worrying about getting more. I plan on quitting cold turkey next Thursday. This forum has helped me so much to prepare myself for what's to come. I am terrified, but so incredibly motivated to stop this.
(this is soooo frustrating!!!) Anyway, he prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> for me to take every day. Yesterday was my first day on this new drug, and as far as the neuopathic pain, it really seemed to help. (not so much with the muscle and joint pain, but with the tingling, burning, shooting pains and numbness, it did.) However.......I have experienced urinary incontinence for some time now. It started as stress incont. but then it was stress and urge incont.
it should be fine..some get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>euphoria</span> from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span>..i never did just a sluggish feeling so i told my doctor i did not want it anymore...i quit hydros with a friend and now lyrica is her drug of choice/she abuses it tho...she loves it...i hated it..
I wake up typically 2 to 4 times per night, usually have to use the bathroom when I do, then go back to bed, usually able to return to sleep, but again, I do NOT typically enter REM sleep (dream). Is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> safe to take for the other conditions I have, and if so, what are the side effects and dangers? I do also have an allergy to pennicillin and a few grasses, trees, foods, etc. Any suggestions as to what I can try next for sleep?
You do get used to it quickly though and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>euphoria</span> goes away. I liked <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> because you only had to take it twice daily but gaba is so much more affordable that it is worth the inconvenience.
that gel is an interesting mix of a number of meds! the "gabentine" part is neurontin, which is in new generation form called "lyrica." I have found lyrica to be the most helpful medication for nerve/muscle aches type pain. It can cause weight gain, and swelling in the hands and feet. If you watch your diet, it doesn't have to be a weight disaster. There's nothing better that I've tried for such pain. (I have nerve damage from a spinal fusion).
do you guys take meds (pain meds) i tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> and made me nauseous so I stopped............i am afraid of pain meds in my home because my husband is a pill addict!!!! (which adds to my stress) in fact alot of times I am on the forum for addicton because of him!!!! i finally saw this forum and decided i need to talk to people for some ideas on how to cope with this disease....................does it get worse as years go on??? I am moving to arizona for the warmth!!!!!!
Most us here took pain meds for legitimate pain but that pain became secondary to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>euphoria</span> we all tried to achieve. Maybe you need to look at reevaluting your pain. Some of us also had decreased pain once we were off the meds. If you dont do something about this now it will only get worse. The wd;s are minor compared to what is really going on.
For some opiate addicts, the patch is a step up the ladder to increased addiction, as fentanyl is extremely potent and can induce quite a bit of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>euphoria</span>. The slower delivery of a patch is generally safer than a short-acting pill, but some people start to 'play' with the patches-- they wear several at once, or cut them, smoke them, chew them... or they apply heat to them so that they release the drug faster and your skin picks it up more quickly.
Besides relieving pain, Morphine's effects impair mental and physical performance, relieves fear and anxiety, and produces <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>euphoria</span>. Morphine's effects also decreases hunger, inhibits the cough reflex, produces constipation, and usually reduces the sex drive; in women it may interfere with the menstrual cycle. Morphine's euphoric effects can be highly addictive.
I've been prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lyrica</span> (gabapentin) and Oramorph( time released pain killer) for daily use. Soma and Vicadin for break through pain. Ran out of the last three two weeks ago and went cold turkey for a week. Scared the hell out of me... So, I told the detox doc what was up. Told him about the implanted Medtronic TENDS unit and pretty much the whole story. I've been on the Vicadin and Soma since last friday....3-4 sets a day.
