Lyrica opiate withdrawal

Common Questions and Answers about Lyrica opiate withdrawal


<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> is not a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span>. it is in the anti depressant line. I did try it for migraines. Some have have great success with it. it is also used for all type of pain. Fibro, back pain. it works on different receptors of the brain. I do know it takes awhile for your body to get use to it. You may want to spaek to your doctor about the side effects.
Has anyone been prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span>? I have, and have had great results with it for nerve pain in my right arm and hand. Opinions, please. My two other posts with more description vanished, so I will leave with this lol.
This is my first day on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span>, and the doctor increased my citalopram! I was wondering if anyone else is on this med and if so did you notice dizziness? I have noticed a decrease in my pain, but a weird like disoriented feeling! I am so tired of pain I can deal with this for awhile, I just was wondering if anyone else has had these symptoms and if so did they go away? So far I am willing to stick anything out as long as I can get some pain relief.
I just don't want to be taken <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> and then when the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> withdrawals are better/gone and I decide to quit taking the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> the opiate withdrawals come back and it's like opiate withdrawals all over again (like day 1). I know Lyrica isn't a narcotic and isn't a big habit former unless it's really abused, but I just want to know that Lyrica and hydrocodien have none of the same ingredients or substances and it won't be like me still taking the hydrocodien??
I know I have read different articles some saying doctors don't believe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> causes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal symptoms but after having under gone severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal syndrome from Valium I beg to differ because I am recognizing some of the symptoms. Oh I forgot to mention I am sweating a lot! I hate to sweat! I feel like I stink when I sweat. I have been so exhausted I can barely take a dang shower!
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!
I went to my doctor on Wednesday, and she thinks my symptoms at this stage of the game ( 43 days now) are more from the cymbalta than the Lyrica, but they are very similar, almost identical, and are the most painful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal situation I have ever been in. it is lke being in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> and benzo <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal at the same time, I have thought that I was going to die. Anyway, I am feeling better today thank goodness.
When I have gotten off the Percocets, I have taken just the tramadol and it completely removes the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal. But of course, if I quit the tramadol then the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal kicks right in anyway. it is just unbelievable how we all came to this point. I would say the majority of the people here all started with an auto accident (my case) or bad injury or illness and before we knew it we were taking a pill to just feel normal.
everyone is different but generally, it has been found that following <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> detox, there are two periods of protracted <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal. The first (or sub-acute <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal) lasts 2-8 weeks and people describe moderate to severe insomnia and fatigue, low energy, and other depressive symptoms. This is quite variable but is sometimes difficult for people to tolerate. Unfortunately medications have only a limited effect.
This site inparticular, for some reason doesn't have to many posters posting about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> or gabapentin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal because it's mainly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> addiction in here but google 'Lyrica withdrawal' and you'll find way more information about it. Good luck.
My question is, has anyone heard of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> causing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal symptoms when taken w/methadone? I was given Tramadol(Ultram) w/ methadone and thought I was going to die with the interaction it caused!!!
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal symptoms include restlessness, insomnia, and anxiety. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal symptoms 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.
He is finishing this tomorrow but is complaining of severe back pain. Back injury was the reason for the oxy to begin with. They are trying <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span>. I am worried about it's reproductive harm issues, addictive properties, abuse potential, etc... The nurse at the clinic told me that probably nothing would remove his pain as the oxy's did so to be warned that he may go back to them unless he is willing to live with pain.<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span>/show/477?cid=39 Pain Relief Alternatives: I don't have fibro (at least not primary), but I do often have pain. I am one of the fortunate ones who can tolerate it.. except during times when I have migraines and/or bad back pain.
I've heard countless times that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal is more painful but suboxone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal lasts a whole lot longer. My psychiatrist prescribed me to neurontin for cravings/withdrawals. My question is do you have to take it for a certain amount of days for it to work? She told me that I could just take 100 mg 3x a day when I'm craving but every time I take it it hasn't helped at all. No side effects or anything. Should I increase the dose?
it still boggles my mind how your body can just fiend for something, yet your mind doesnt know what. After that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal episode, I said to hell with that, Im never going through that again. ..wrong.. My back pain and stomach pain continued and I had no choice but to take meds for it. I was prescribed percocet 10/325. Man did it help with the pain. I kept getting 180 pills a bottle....a lot.. I was also prescribed Xanax for how stressed ive been .
I have 3 herniated disc in my back but take lithium so I can't take any anti-inflammatories, which only leaves opiates which my body becomes addicted to very fast, then I get to suffer through <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal. She started me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> under the guise of nerve pain, and sleep disorder (which I have but I'm allergic to sleeping pills lol whole world of issues for my prescribing dr) Lyrica HAS WORKED. I've gained a few pounds so far, but my progress outweighs the weight.
An increase of pain that is even higher than before you began the opiates and perhaps the pain may even be(but not necessarily) in an area of your body that the opiate wasn't prescribed to treat in the first place.
but then started having chest pain and palpitations similar to when I was withdrawing from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span>. first question- Is this normal for tram <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal. I took 2 otc motrin, and 1 otc,benadryl and this helped. but by the afternoon the anxiety was so bad I took 1/2 tab of ativan slept for three ours and right now I feel pretty good...almost normal. I was reluctant to use the ativan because I an so afraid of a new addiction.
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. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal is in someways worse than OxyContin. it really helped with the depression but it's still bad. I need to wean down further but right now I'm thinking on drug at a time. I'm not sure why for some it's a wonder drug and other it doesn't help. I'm totally disabled and don't work.
I have been on all kinds of meds like neurontin, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span>, etc. The only thing that relieves the pain is percocet. I take 6-8 10/325's a day. I called yesterday to get my refil and my doctor's office called back saying no script until Feb. 11 and then when I pick it up, she wants me to get a urine drug test. Didn't think I was addicted, but certainly a wake-up call. I am now down to only 24 pills and can't get a script for 8 days. Bleck. I started tapering yesterday.
I am looking for a support group, forum or chat room that I can use for support during my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal. Can you help me? I can't find anything on the internet.
Hey, the Lyrica will help it will "calm your nerves" so to speak. But I am not sure about all the other ones. I am not a Dr or anything and I have never taken my medication other then how prescribed but when I first started taking the Lyrica it made me very VERY tired and sluggish. I didnt take any of my other pain pills that day so maybe it is good for withdrawal it makes you not need anything else? I dunno..
Hi Everyone; Question is; What can I do to make the Tramadol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal faster and less painful? I'm so grateful to find this place. I had a severe car accident in 2000 and at the time refused to take any pain meds. However, I injured two lower back discs and ended up with neuropathy into S1, basically my right leg goes numb down to my foot. I mean, it's always numb. Sometimes it hurts, sometimes it loses strength.
He went through the typical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal symptoms the first week and is getting better everyday. However, he has these vomiting spells. Sometimes it's only once, other times, like last night, he goes on all night long. Is this normal withdrawal? 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.
After I finished the project in mid-may, I decided that I needed to stop using a drug to get through the day, so I tried to just stop taking it. WOW! Serious <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>h</span></span>drawal symptoms including joint and muscle pain, stomch issues, fatigue, depression and a strange hollowness in my nerves ensued. I didn't feel I could just stop functioning for a week or two or whatever it would take, so I used some hydrocodone that I had to help me get my tramadol use down to 100mg per day over the course of a week.
