Common Questions and Answers about Lyrica in mexico

lyrica

I have been taking it for 2 months now. I live in Mexico so getting a prescription refilled is not an issue. I just am not sure I should stay on it.... reading all that has been written here and hoping I am not addicted at some point. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks.
heather, I looked up Lyrica in my nursing drug book,. Here are some of the major side effects: : ataxia, blurred vision, confusion, incoordination, dizziness and abnormal thinking. Also, vertigo, abnormal gait, anxiety , nervousness, tremor and twitching, and of all things, neuropathy. That's ridiculous since this is a drug for neuropathy. Do not stop the drug abruptly. I would lower the dose for tomorrow and call the doctor who prescribed it on Monday.
An FDA spokesman said the agency has revoked device approvals before, although the step is rare. ReGen, based in Hackensack, N.J., asked the FDA in 2005 to approve its device under the so-called 510k system, which allows speedy approval for devices that are similar to products already on the market. ReGen argued that the Menaflex was comparable to shoulder joint implants sold by Johnson & Johnson, Stryker and other companies.
I have been gradually been feeling worse in the last two weeks, difficulty breathing around supper time and can't wait to use the puffer at bedtime." She responded, "Well, WHEN I SEND a letter to Dr. S. I will ask him if he will see you regarding your breathing difficulty and I will write you a Rx for Ventolin and you can use that in between the doses of Advair and Spireva...yeah, I will SEND that letter tomorrow.
) My ex-wife has an uncle who is a physician across the border in Mexico, so I might visit him for a presciption for a blood thinner and stop taking the vitamin E and garlic, unless he says otherwise. I already take 10 mg. of Plavix and 3,000 mg. of garlic a day, so I bought some vitamin E this morning and will take 400 i.u per day as recommended. Time will tell. If anyone has gotten any confirmation from a physician about these symptoms and the possible causes, please post that information.
for the past 6 months I have been experiencing a sore tightness in both of my calf muscles sporadically. It does not seem to be related to exercise since I can go for a run and feel nothing... but then I can be sitting and all of a sudden my calves (always both at the same time) start to ache and feel tight. Sometimes they feel so sore that I can almost not walk. Water seems to help on occasions. I can't understand why all of a sudden I may be becoming dehydrated so that doesn't seem logical...
Baja California, Mexico. Hi, I hope somebody can help me. The reason why i'm here is because since a long time ago more than one year The reason why I am here is because for over a year and half I have suffered from infections and pain in the body multiple chronic conditions. The pain that I feel is so hard it can be sometimes in my back (lungs) like a muscle spasms. And sometimes I feel it in my Thoracic diaphragm like a electric shock along my body.
Has the Lyrica helped you at all? I have also done much research on muscles in the neck as well as anxiety. I think I may be having a problem with these as well. The muscles in my neck are so very tight and that would cause issues with vision, headaches, ear fullness and many other things. I have done massage therapy which has helped quite a bit. I also noticed that TMJ will cause the same symptoms and I know with having anxiety I clench my teeth alot and now my jaw clicks.
I have tried Gabapentin. It seemed to increase the throbbingness. I have switched to Lyrica, It seems to mildly decrease the "electric shock ' feelings in the body,does nothing for HA's.I have been lowering the dose,it does have a very "speedy' effect on me. I feel for me it really isn't working.I also get like cluster HA's so have started oxygen and so far I am liking it and hoping it will do a little for the CM HA! for the poll: I have tried pretty much everything!
July 4th - 2009 - Independance day has a whole new meaning - I am finally independant of that God Aweful monster that was consumming my life - I am free - I am SVR - 1 year from the final treatment (the odds were so low with just 13 weeks treatment)....there really isn't a more perfect feeling in the world. I believe that now I can die and go to heaven...heavens gates have opened for me. The wrathes of hell are behind me. No matter how hard your journey may be, how bleek, how desperate....
I'll give a quick background to a long story but I just want to know if anyone thinks my issues could be related or one causing the other? Got a virus in Mexico in 10/07. Had difficulty breathing when walking and coughed a lot for 2 months after virus. Asthma medicine made no improvement. Felt issue was in my throat, not lungs. At first of year, my throat felt very strange...numbish and then the sensation of an object in my throat appeared.
I'm a 26 year old female living in New Mexico. I've been experiencing the following symptoms - I have been to many, many doctors - i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and yesterday I was placed on Thyroid medication - any thoughts on possible cushings?
however, I do not recall an infection prior to the acute symptoms experienced. I was in Mexico ~ 4-5 days before I started to have the symptoms. Will I have any permanent damage if I elect not to take any medications? Any thoughts on if this is attributed to chronic infection. I had lab work done ~ 2 weeks prior for my annual physical and everything was WNL. It was very frightening as to what happened to me. Thanks again.
My husband and I are both self employed, so for the most part we self pay for anything other than major medical. I'm thankful that we live just 10 minutes from Mexico and I can purchase the Lyrica there. Though, it's still $30 for 14 tablets. A box a week. NOW... here's the funny part. I ran out of Lyrica and took one lower dose Neurontin left over and two (800mg) ibuprofin and... it almost feels as if I have more feeling NOW. Again, I don't want to "mask" the problem.
not a narcotic temgesic is a pain med in mexico...rx-d in 0.2 mgs doses and up....it is not recognized as a very strong pain reliver but does provide some pain relief/everyone is different tho.....0.2 mgs would not cover the dose of oxy u r on tho....2-4 mgs may keep u out of wds...sub was originally a pain med/and the usa adopted it as an addiction drug and here it is rx-d in huge dose compared to what mexico prescribed (RX-D) for pain...
This is like poison leaving thru sinuses, but then turning around to but me in the A$$, in the form of bronchitis. I was ready for it. I'm all stocked up, because it has happened before. Just have to e aggressive abut the physical medicine. Lots of VICKS, hot steam .... and NO exertion which would push the bacteria deeper into the lobes of the lungs! And how are all of the rest of my Trama-Poison friends doin this fine evening? Everyone hanging in there? It's freaking poison. They lied!
Hi everyone! Welcome to Part 14! Please come in and make yourself at home. We're all glad you made it here.
Rain and July! I moved to Mexico to work in 1999, and for the past six years, I've lived 15 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, and suffer a little in the humid summers. But Lake Chapala's temps are basically 80 degrees year round with little humidity. Once I retire, I may just move inland.

I hurt so bad I want to cry but I have a doctor that does not believe in pain medication. He only has me taking Oxytocin 10mg 1 every 12 hours. I take Lyrica as well 150 mg three times a day but that is all. I have been to a spine doctor that gave me three spinal blocks to try and ease the pain but the last one made things worse instead of better. The RSD has also taken hold of my kidneys as well as my colon. I feel that this disease can spread to the upper and lower extremities.
she wouldn't have thought of it that's for sure! I have an appt in June with the rheumy. I am now on Lyrica 300mg/day and Tegretol 900mg/day and in a whole lot of pain! My dr. has gone off to Mexico for vacation and won't be back for 2 weeks. Wish I could get away on a vacation from my pain for two week as would most on this forum! So that is me in a nutshell...not that I'm nuts but getting there... Oh Yeah...
i will go with the Lab Corp a few weeks into my ceftin i live in the mountains in New England for 20 years. I went to mexico in 2008 IDK but i will keep trying. I do not think i have fibromyalgia. My physical therapist sees a lot of lyme and fibro people and she thinks it is lyme. you are so helpfull. thanks as i said i have been searching for an answer for over 6 months and sometimes i think i need a shot of whisky and a bullet to bight on.! the pain .. the unknowing creates anxiety.
Usually I just go yeah yeah I'm fine,but darn I'm not fine This rash is nuts I have it alllll over even in my ears, head and (we do get personal on this forum) all over! I can't hold a conversation because of this ridiculous cough. I am drownding in my own snot ( sorry another pleasant subject) and at a friend's BBQ the other day it was windy and my hair was literaly flying off my head....
has you on Tegretol and Lyrica. Your symptoms are caused by the old lesions in your brain and because you have no new lesions, your disease is inactive. Because your disease is inactive, you do not require the disease modifying drugs." She then went on to extoll the virtues of my MS Specialist and stated that "you have one of the best MS Specialists in the country and she knows what she is doing." So, I have to go to my g.p.
I have bought T3 from Mexico in case she won't let me go up, they have T4 too. It really is a pity that it's like this. How can this happen? Apparently they aren't being properly trained properly. She told me some of her patients have Fibromyalgia and Arthritis nd see a Rhemy, which was a warning sign to me because she should have told them to increase their T3..that's what takes my pain away.
I came out of the hospital after having my uterus reconstructed in September 2010 and was put on 75 mcg of Fentanyl every 48 hrs plus 8 mg of dialaudid every 4-6 hrs as needed. I was on bed rest for 6 weeks-2 weeks after that I got married in Mexico...I hardly remember my own wedding and (long story) never should have got married....I left a month later. I tapered first off the break through medication (took 8 months) then down to 50 mcg Fentanyl every 72 hrs. I was a disaster....
