Common Questions and Answers about Lyrica nausea

lyrica

I posted this on the addiction board but no one could help me so I was hoping some of you could. I abused lyrica for a week and a half. I was taking up to 10 150mg pills the last couple days. My last pill was Saturday AM. I have been a little naseous, no appetite but the worst is the pin pricks feeling on my skin all over my body. Has anyone gone off lyrica before and had this happen? If so how long does this last? Is there anything that helps?
I am taking lyrica 150mg OD for the last 1.5yrs due to back pain. Previously the pain was severe & it wasn't improving. Now after undergoing physiotherapy my pain has reduced to 60%. I am feeling better now after continuing back exercises advised by my physiotherapist. I dnt want to continue lyrica any more as I have gained some weight and also the so called dizziness hampering my daily life. I stopped it for 2 days but didn't sleep well. Plz suggest me how will I withdraw this medicine...
Can anyone who has done a lyrica wean tell me how 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.
I was on 300mg and weaned off it, I also had/ have nasea and vomiting and feeling flushed but don't think it's related to the lyrica, instead related to my cancer/ recovery / chemo. I had to go off Lyrica becaus of weight gain. I stpped it a few weeks back and already dropped a few pounds and can do my pants up agian! I notice my feet and legs hurt at night, and hurt when I get out of bed but as I go about my day I forget about it.
Needless to say, I take tons of meds. I am having difficulty with Lyrcia. Anyone having success with an alternative to Lyrica?
MRI 2 yrs ago showed cyst on L3, arthritis, osteoporosis, et al. on L3/L4. Family dr. gave rx. a year ago for Lyrica 100 mg 3X a day. Last week a neurologist tested with needles, his small hammer and re cold sensations along right side and leg and said problem isn't nerves and no further testing is needed. Could the Lyrica and also excessive Bufferin on day of the office visit have effected his diagnosis? What next?
I don't think this is being cause entirely by the Lyrica withdrawel. When I went off Lyrica, I had the nausea and sweats, but it didi't last that long. I did have my doctor give me 50gm dosages and tapered down from that, but again the "side effects" of going off were only short-lived. How long have you been trying to taper down? How bad are the symptoms? IF they are bad enough to interfere with your daily life, then you need to get checked out by your doctor.
Have you considered trying Neurontin? I took it for years prior to Lyrica but found Lyrica worked just a little better for me. They also use it to help with Fibromyalgia pain.
Abrupt or Rapid Discontinuation Following abrupt or rapid discontinuation of LYRICA, some patients reported symptoms including insomnia, nausea, headache, and diarrhea. LYRICA should be tapered gradually over a minimum of 1 week rather than discontinued abruptly. Hmm, sound familiar?
OK - can anyone who has taken Lyrica and Cymbalta in conjunction with each other please give me your experiences --- and how long you've been taking them? I've been temporarily "diagnosed" with neuropathic pain issues (think Fibromyalgia). Waiting on some final test results to rule out any other Autoimmune Disease - but I believe I'll be finally diagnosed as Fibromyalgia. My Rheumatologist / Internist has prescribed Lyrica and Cymbalta together.
I was just put on Lyrica, 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?
I had disc fusion surgery at C6 last April and the surgeon said it was a 50/50 I would get relief from the pain. It's been 8 months and no relief. I've been on Tramadol, (had seritonin syndrome from it), Amitriptyline (Reacted poorly, confused & no desire to live) and now I'm on Lyrica. I find there is some relief from the pain and it's only been 4 days but I'm dizzy, very tired, I get winded just speaking, and my mood...
I suffer from chronic pain and had allergic three actions to gabapentin, lexapro and cymbalta, then I switched pain doctors not happy, he suggested lyrica I said I wouldn't go on it until I spoke with Eli Lily they told me there is no chance of me having the allergy, I was only on it for two weeks and that dyskinesia kicked in, I was on a low dose, only one pill, because I was or he having problems with it. Now I'm in lyrica brutality withdrawal!
My experience with lyrica withdraw has been the same as everyone else's. I'm very tired all of the time. I think suicidal thoughts. I cannot enjoy anything. It has been 2 months and it seems to be getting better. I have withdrew from suboxone, heroin, and pain pills in the past. Lyrica is a tough one. It is getting better. But is a slow process. I took lyrica for 5 years 200 mg a day. I try to rest as often as I can.
Gabapentin and Neurontin are the same med- you are correct. Neurontin is the brand name. I found Gabapentin and Lyrica to be very similar, but Lyrica is stronger at lower doses. I have tried Cymbalta as well and didn't like it. I had trouble with my GI system. I had diarrhea the whole time I was on it and I became incredibly depressed.
I'm wondering if any of you have experience with Cymbalta or Lyrica.... Why was it prescribed - what symptom was it supposed to work for? how long did it take for it to begin working with your pain? Did you have any problems with side effects? Anything else you can add?
I am on 300 mg of Lyrica a day and it was doing wonders for me. I am now fighting a bad flare and my doctor doesn't want a higher dose although I'm going to fight him over it. When is the dose too high? Is it inevitable that it will stop working?
I have been suffering with chronic nausea for 2 weeks and I've taken nausea meds that don't help for very long. Any idea what I can do for this problem?. I've been to the Dr and he doesn't know what is causing it.
I have to take phenargen for the nausea. Am I crazy? I don't vomit, but nausea is overwhelming. I do have fibromyalgia, so the pain of the herniation is difficult to differentiate. I take Celebrex, Lyrica, and other meds. But the nausea didn't start in conjunction with a medicine.

If anyone has nausea from their pain meds, I tried Emetrol yesterday with my Lyrica/Hydrocodone. I am not sure what makes me sick, I think everything at this point. But this over the counter liquid, 1 TBS for adults, worked wonders. Did not make me sleeply like other antinausea meds out there. Just posting in case it can help someone else have a better day because it's bad enough to have pain, but the side effects that come with it are just too much some days!
that is why I thought it was a result from stop taking Lyrica. I did not gain much weight on it and the nausea was never an issue until I quit taking it. And yet another question I was looking at my brain mri (on paper) and I don't think I have Chiari though I have 1mm herniation.. I cant see any csf blocking but lol I really haven't seen any other mri´s either :) If I can put one on my profile could you do me the favor and look at it.. not to dx me just to give me an idea what I am seeing.
In April 2008, about 60 days after the original AVM resection, I started experiencing debilitating headaches and nausea. The cranioplasty allowed my head to adjust to atmospheric pressure and the horrible headache went away! The nausea and "sick feeling" has been with me all along and it is really difficult to live with. My family MD said I suffer from Thalamic Pain Syndrome resulting from the original surgery.
Severe pain can cause nausea. Perhaps he is correct about the addiction part I understand they are very addictive pain medication. Maybe you should see the pain specialist about the addiction part. Take your husband so he can have a better understanding of your pain. Severe pain can cause all sorts of problems starting with deppression. Hope it all works out for you.
Tried to wean off the Lyrica but probably did too fast so I picked back up to 3 - 25 mg a day and that does it. On less than 75 mg day the nerve pain and spine tingling was nearly unbearable. Added DLPA 500 mg twice a day and it helps a lot with the muscle pain and stiffness. Allowed me to get a lot of cleaning done with only a little extra soreness in my right shoulder from constantly wiping the wood work.
thanks. Did you get nausea or vomiting from Lyrica?
My father has been having episodes of sweats, nausea, chills, with no fever. He has gone to the hospital and had tests ran. No complications with his heart, no kidney problems. It has been going on for about 3 months now. His WBC are 13, 000, (he's in the hospital receiving atb), he is somewhat anemic. There is nothing in particular that we have noticed that brings it on.
•Insomnia •Nausea •Headaches •Diarrhea However, the most worrisome side effect for quitting Lyrica too quickly is the return of seizures you had before going on the medication or the arrival of new seizures that you've never had before. These seizures can occur even if you weren't taking Lyrica for seizures. Lyrica withdrawal symptoms are generally nothing more than uncomfortable, though if you end up with seizures, it can be very problematic.
What i did find strange is that no-one else seems to have been cured from there Nausea/Indegestion with Lyrica, but let me tell you i am now 4 months into taking it and for the first time in years i have not been sick that WHOLE time - that is a REALLY good thing for me and nothing except Lyrica has given me so much relief.
I am greatful to at least have some kind of relief due to the kind of pain that I endure. I don't know what I would do without my Lyrica either. It seems to have a clock like ability to just @ the minutes to when it is due. Now, that they have put me on the Topamax it seems have helped me stave off taking the Lyrica right on time..in which is good in a way since I take it every 6 hrs.and I heard that if you take it over 4 times a day it does you no good. I don't take it but 3..some days 4.
The day after I was getting feelings of anxiety with headache, nausea then loss of appetite. I went to the ER the next day, and luckily MRI and CT were clear as well as heart rate and blood tests. I did not have EKG, surmising that blood pressure tests ruled out any heart issues. However, symptoms still persist. It's been about 7 days now. I have nausea, headaches, anxiety, trembling and have to force myself to eat.
