Common Questions and Answers about Pregabalin baclofen

lyrica

1218873_tn?1300094816 I think I have fewer side effects with pregabalin (Lyrica). Like I said, I couldn't take more than 300 mg of gabapentin at a time, without getting dizzy, no matter how slowly I increased. I take 100 mg of Lyrica (=~ 1200 mg of gabapentin, I think!) + 300 mg of gabapentin at the same time w/o getting dizzy.
Avatar_m_tn These are anti-epilepsy drugs such as valproate, carbamazepine, lamotrigine, phenytoin, gabapentin, and pregabalin; muscle relaxants such as clonazepam and baclofen; tricyclic antidepressants such as carbamazepine, amitriptyline, and nortriptyline. The other option is surgery: Stereotactic radiosurgery, cutting or destroying part of nerve or removing blood vessel or tumor pressing it. If there is a tumor or blood vessel causing the symptoms then medical treatment will not help.
Avatar_f_tn Examination by a phisio, orthopedic surgeon and podiatrist have not been able to help. I have been prescibed various drugs including baclofen and pregabalin but still no joy. Anyone have a similar experience and information would be appreciated.
Avatar_n_tn One of the neuro-surgeons suggested neuropathy as the cause. She currently takes pregabalin and hydromorphone but they don't seem to do anything to reduce the spasm pain. EMG has shown negative nerve damage. We are thoroughly confused on what solution to try not knowing what the cause is. My wife's life has come to a grinding halt. Even a 30-second trip triggers the spasm pain. watching TV (lying down), talking to people face-to-face and conversations on the phone are triggers for spasm pain.

So ask your doctor to try these combinations. Something may click. Pain pumps can be helpful but they have their set of problems and you may need to keep increasing the dose. So, a combination therapy always works best.
Avatar_f_tn This spasticity has increased to the stage that now, 7 months post op I am struggling with constant pain, muscle spasms and tightness which is making walking a painful struggle. I'm currently taking max dose of tizanadine, baclofen and pregabalin to cope with the pain daily. As well as valium, on bad days! Even with all these meds pain is still a constant issue!! My question is what could be the cause of my spasticity?
Avatar_f_tn 3/ Does MS effect swallowing, food sticking in throat/choking on food and going down windpipe?
1168718_tn?1439850410 Baclofen, 10mg. twice a day is a light dose. I take Baclofen 20 mg 3-4 times a day, Norflex 10 mg twice a day, 10 mg of Valium every night to control spasticity and its related pain.
Avatar_f_tn I am also very stiff on waking and have neck and upper back pain. I am taking lyrica ( pregabalin) and baclofen and dihydrocodine for pain control and tho I cant claim to be " in agony " I am in pain or severe discomfort most of every day. This as I'm sure you'll understand is very wearling and 'm constantly exhausted .It means im not getting things done arouund the house and gradually its slipping into a tip.
Avatar_f_tn Such twitching can be treated by anti-epilepsy drugs such as valproate, carbamazepine, lamotrigine, phenytoin, gabapentin, and pregabalin; muscle relaxants such as baclofen; tricyclic antidepressants such as carbamazepine, amitriptyline, and nortriptyline. The other option is surgery: Stereotactic radiosurgery, cutting or destroying part of nerve or removing blood vessel or tumor pressing it. If there is a tumor or blood vessel causing the symptoms then medical treatment will not help.

Avatar_m_tn GABAPENTIN 800 MG 4X DAY BACLOFEN 30MG 4XDAY HYDROMORPHONE 8MG 3X DAY MORPINE SULFATE ER60MG EVERY 8 HOURS LEXAPRO 20MG 1X DAY PLEASE HELP ME i have tried other pain medications and anti depresion meds with side effects COLD AIR and fans make me crazy with pain and tingling. i have trouble in summer because i cant tell when i am too hot and become over heated and almost black out.
Avatar_n_tn clonidine unfortunately is great for opiate wd but for benzo wd it wont be as helpful, it may help the restlessness youll ahve and maybe the rebound insomnia youll experience...gabapentin or lyrica(pregabalin) are prescription meds that act on the GABA neurotransmitters that benzos also work on and can ease the wds quite a bit, lyrica is a predesessor of gabapentin and is about 50% stronger..you can also look into hydroxyzine, soma, and baclofen...

In this case surgery is the only treatment. You need a combined approach by a dentist and an ENT specialist. Take a second opinion if possible. Take care!
Avatar_f_tn Anyone beginning a course of gabapentin or pregabalin, (or Tegretol (carbamazepine), baclofen, clonazepam, diazepam, and a few others), please be informed about the risks of using these medications. These medications can have great benefit, but always understand both the risks and the benefits of any medication or treatment you consent to try. Remember, all medical treatment is accepted under the principle of informed consent.
4735388_tn?1358543287 I didn't realize that Gilenya causes fatigue because I am always fatigued due to the MS and Baclofen! I really haven't noticed any increased fatigue but after reading your post I think I will try taking it in th evening instead of the morning.
1168317_tn?1330266437 When a more tradiitional pain med like (gabapentin, pregabalin, etc) is helping, but not quite enough, then the addition of A can be helpful. One of the biggest drawbacks to it is that it is very sedating, so I don't think it is a great first-line pain med. But, as a second add-on you can use far lower doses, or just a single low-dose at night and it will often augment the first med's effectiveness. We have many members here who are on such a combination with outstanding success.
Avatar_f_tn Over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen are unlikely to bring the same kind of relief to burning pain as it does for a headache. Anti-spasticity muscle relaxant drugs such as baclofen and diazepam, however, are effective for easing muscle spasms and tightness in many people. Your doctor might also prescribe medications such as gabapentin and pregabalin designed to alleviate nerve pain.
Avatar_f_tn Ive been taken of 500mgs of Tegretol (carbamazepine) twice daily, I mean a dead halt to takign the tablets and had them replaced with Lyrica (pregabalin) 75mg once daily, just increased to twice daily so ive no idea whether the symptoms im having are due the the infusion or a withdrawal from the carbamazepine or a side effect of the pregabalin or a combination of all of them OR just the MS thats getting worse despite the IV steroids.
1140169_tn?1370188676 but, dosage is important, and i might have to ask for an increase and keep giving it a try. one thing is, it is a safe drug for the most part. i take baclofen formytremors. they are the mild shakey type that radiates from my spine to other areas. i prbobably notice thme more than others although a shrink recently commented on them when i was at his office this year. baclofen has been a good med for me. it is subtle but works gnetly. best of luck Mike.
Avatar_n_tn The new drug for nerve pain that supposedly has very few side affects is: Lyrica (Pregabalin). It should be out now. Very new but supposed to be superior to Neurontin...
Avatar_f_tn I had the same thing--like leaning against a generator and getting vibrated but no one can see it or even feel it. It went away after about a month. It happened during an attack I had right before I learned my ANA was positive. Go to www.justanswer.com and pose your question to one of their medical specilaists. I am finally getting a diagnosis for something that my regular doctors have not been able to figure out for the last 5-6 years!
