Lyrica to get high

Common Questions and Answers about Lyrica to get high


I've never had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> show ID <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span>. Was that your first time getting a prescription there? If you are really concerned you should speak to the dr. that put you on the medication. Lyrica has a website, I hope the website can answer your questions and make you feel at ease.
Hi, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> shouldn't be addictive at the low doses used for neuropathy. My grandmothers been on it or the other derivative, gabapentin, for years. Just take it at low doses. It works wonders for treating nerve pain though.
I wasn't even at a high dose at the time, but I didn't want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> in too far over my head and I could tell that is where things were going. But as I mentioned before, everyone is different. You can always try something and that doesn't mean you can't wean off of it and try something else you know. There are a lot of options out there. Good luck!!!
It sounds like maybe your doctor gave you too high of a dose but anyway I think I will start checking in on this forum when I feel like it and see what is helping or hurting someone with the use of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span>. I am a person that has a very high sensitivity <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> medicataion and a lot of allergies related <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> pain medicine, there is almost none that I can take. I take 600mg.
So the Dr switched me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span>..The two are basically the same family of med but for some reason there seems <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be a pattern where its one or the other that different individuals can tolerate..In my case, the gabapentin didn't agree with me but the Lyrica was ok. With some people its the opposite..why that is I don't know but I saw alot of comments over in the pain management forum from a number of individuals on their experiences with the two drugs when seeking answers a year ago..
they said to wait until the Lyrica was out of your system for at least 6 I am going <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> stop the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> early 2008....hopefully the results wont be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> harrowing~!
I found this information about Lyrica on the Pfizer website for the medication. Click on the "Patient Product Information" tab and you can read entire summary. This is just a portion of what you will see there. "Lyrica may cause some people to feel "high." Tell your doctor, if you have abused prescription medicines, street drugs, or alcohol in the past." Website link is:
I am wondering if anyone is using <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> for pain? and do you have any infomation <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> share?
I am now in the same vicious cycle with them as with all the other pills. I take too many and I run out early and have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> figure out how <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> more. I have not experienced any of the side effects that you mentioned but you never know for sure.
How long have you been on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span>? It took more than a month <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> rid of the sx of it. It sure is a godsend as far as pain relief. I lost 30 lbs being in so much pain this year. I am hoping I dont' gain it back! My appetite does seem much better now. I suppose cutting out fat in your diet could help with weight. I still can't eat breakfast and drink Ensure. I seem to have breakthrough pain and take fiornal codiene for migraines and pain. They seem to help. The dr.
I was told that it takes about 2 months <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> the full effects of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> and some of the side effects will subside too. Don't give up now and do not stop without proper instructions and does reductions.
You should let your doctor know and see if there may be a link <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> and maybe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> a different prescription. Good luck!
The oxycontin he craves and is addicted to (currently tapering down from) but the Lyrica he does not crave at all and sometimes doesn't take any at all during the day. Due <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the addiction <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the oxycontin, we have both spoken <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the doc about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> and he has told us that if the maximum dosage is exceeded then it can give a "high" but only in the higher dosage, it certianly couldn't do that at a low dosage apparently. How much have you been put onto? Hope that helps a bit.
It will tend <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> make one feel groggy. Please be careful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> see how it effects you, as you don't want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> drive while feeling 'high'. Be safe and take care.
Hey! Wow that is a very high dose! I was never addicted <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> and it didn't even work for me! I am on my 3 rd week of having weird, hellish withdrawals from weaning off the Lyrica! I know and read that their is a chance of being addicted if taking in really high doses. You need to go see your doctor immediately and tell him the true about how much your taking and that your addicted. You need to wean down slowly! If you need any help just PM me!
Hi friends, My husband is a diabetic & suffers from the nerve pain that sometimes goes along with it. Well, in the last few weeks he's been having a world of trouble getting his prescription filled. He's a truck driver & we usually get it mail ordered to the house, but he ran out on the road before he got home. Well, that's happened before, & one of us will put in a call to the DR,& he'll drive his rig to a Wal-Mart & pick it up. No big deal.
After I worked up to a fairly high dose (it does have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be worked up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>), it took the edge off the pain, that's all. I think it's so individual that there's no saying how it would work for you. Lyrica is considered 'Son of Neurontin,' for what that's worth, and generally is less hard on the body. Years ago I had a good bit of Neurontin and had a muscle constantly jumping to a boogie beat. Embarrassing.
I'm suprised they have you on both! No wonder you're a mess! <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> off the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span>, you need <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> read the sides for Cymbalta, I just take a 60 mg EVERY OTHER DAY and I'm much better. I take 10 other meds see my profile and the Cymbalta has helped but I still have the hips and shoulder tender points. I can't believe you're working with all that. I'm disputing my Dis. denial for the 4th time with a high-powered lawyer. As far as SS Dis. and Fybro. the forms say clearly, their eval.
I've been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> for 2 months now and it is really helping. I had the same symptoms as you had in the beginning. My neuro started me on 50mg and upped it to 100 per day the next week. I felt like I'd just come out of a bar feeling too. You will get adjusted to it in a few weeks, but please talk to the pharmacist or your doctor about the drug interactions with Clon. It could be interacting and really enhancing your symptoms.
My PM doc said this drug is useless, and you have to take very high doses <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> any effect. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> can be costly, but my PM doc gave me a benefit card and you call it in, enter the number on the card and your co-pay os only $25.00 for an entire year. Not bad considering this drug is well over $200 for a months supply at most pharms. Good luck!!
I'm leaving on Friday for a week in the Carribean so am going <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> wait until I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> start so I can handle any side effects and to allow me to enjoy some alcohol before I start. What has been the experience of others? How soon did you see improvement?
I'm confused and don't know where to begin. All I can say is that I was diagnosed with having fibromyalgia in October 2012. Started taking Lyrica at a very low dose 50mg 3x a day via my primary care physician. Within the 4 months that I've taken it, it has been increased to 400mg~200mg morning, 200mg bedtime. Began feeling "high" and wanted to get off of it. So, with the last doctor's with permission, was told that I could stop taking it. Been having crying spells a lot.
One time it was extremely low (3,000); probably due <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> a viral infection. You may want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> copies of your labs and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> your labs repeated in a few months... especially if you are feeling worse, etc. A low red cell count is commonly seen in women... we tend to be a little bit anemic at times.
I have been prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> please can anyone tell me How soon should I expect <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> relief. I'm in so much pain at the moment it doesnt seem to have made helped at all.
I just started this [past week taking it and all I want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> do is take more . You <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> a wicked buss from it . I can't explain how it feels, other than it makes you feel good inside with a nice little buzz which makes me want to take more of it than you should. Has anybody else experienced these feelings from Lyrica?
The bad thing is that it is really helping me with my pain. I tryed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> off for a week and my apin went up so high that my husband told me to get back on it. I do not know what to do!!!!! Thank you so much for your help.
I too am worried about getting home safely and obviously won't <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> behind the wheel if I'm feeling high. My pharmacist said <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> give it several weeks at this dosage to determine if I'm getting the effectiveness I'm hoping for, so that's what I'll do. Like you I'm finding Lyrica more effective than Neurontin, and I'm very encouraged by that. Thanks for your reply!
Also, I think you have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> phase down guadually from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> if you do decide <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> try neurontin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> avoid some wicked effects so be careful. I would weigh whether the money saved would be worth taking the time to phase down from one drug to the other, and then having to possible switch again if the neurontin doesn't work would be worthwhile. Good luck!
I was taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> which was increased <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the highest dose because it was not working for my fibromyalgia. I had many of the side effects with the high dosage of Lyrica including blurry vision so I weaned myself off of it and had about a months worth left if taken once a day. I have recently been prescribed the Cymbalta because I do have depression from being in pain all the time and not being able to do the things that I am used to doing.
But, not only that, I will go one step further, and answer the question that is REALLY on your mind, that you didn't ask. What you REALLY wanna know is, will <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Lyrica</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span> you high? The answer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> that question which is on everyone's mind but no one is asking, is aytch ee double-ell YES.
