193953 tn?1272078626 And, if you drink alcohol or take medicines that make you sleepy, you may feel more sleepy when you start LYRICA. You should not drive a car or work with machines until you know how LYRICA affects you. Tell your doctor if there is any change in your eyesight. Also tell your doctor if you have muscle pain along with a fever or tired feeling. If you have had a drug or alcohol problem, you may be more likely to misuse LYRICA.
5100586 tn?1363648354 I was on Lyrica 400mg per day for nearly 10 yrs. I remember feeling very tired & sluggish at first but that eventually went away. What I was left with was a total lack of emotion - a bland easy going personality, which wasn't me! Slept well though. Then they told me I had had a misdiagnosis & there was nothing wrong with me!! ( I'd always thought that) Getting off it is absolute hell.
Avatar m tn It's three weeks for me Now and I went from 300 mg of Lyrica a day to 50 mg. Should I just not Take any more? How in the heck do you handle it? This is the worst thing I have ever experienced as it never ends!
Avatar m tn Well I got dyskinesia within two weeks, jerking of the body, hazing in and out not able to read unable to walk. This lyrica withdrawal is brutal, all the other ones took just a couple of days I'm almost up to 30 days and I thought I was getting better and today I'm sicker than ever! Any help for anybody with be greatly appreciated, and if anyone has gone through this does it end?
Avatar n tn how long do these withdrawals last if I'm on day 14 and was throwing up today and still feel all those symptons they say happens to you? i stopped cold turkey and i just want to know when all the pain will go away.
Avatar n tn for any CII script filled, so the most you could fill at one time was 100 tablets, capsules, patches, etc., but no restriction on how long that had to last - you could fill one every day if the situation required it. The question of upper dose is nearly always up to the judgement of the prescriber. There are often administrative limits by insurance or whoever is paying (e.g., Medicare), though those most often are aimed at controlling costs more than they are concerned with therapeutic value.
Avatar f tn Taking 10 30mg per day for 2 months, 6-7 30mg for two months,prior to that using 5-10 Norco 10/325 for 18 months. Can anyone estimate how long the major withdrawals will last if I go cold turkey? I am so terrified but have GOT to do this now. I have Clonodine, Clonazepam, Ambien, Neurontin and Lyrica to help me through. I am scared I will die. I've heard anywhere from 5days of hell to a whole month. Can anyone who's been on a similar dose help me with an estimate? grateful to hear from anyone.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn Does anyone know for how long Lyrica withdrawal symptoms last for? I was on Lyrica for two and a half weeks and the side effects made me quit cold turkey. 3 months later I still have withdrawals!!!
Avatar n tn Is taking 1mg of xanex to help she didn't know she was in trouble, how long would you expect the withdrawral to last would the aleve help.
Avatar f tn I already withdrew from oxys and that was the worst of the worst. But I didn't know Lyrica would cause withdrawal symptoms. Have you ever abused Lyrica? Thanks for writing back. I really appreciate it. I'm new here and I was afraid no one would even answer me. At least you and Ella saw my distress.
Avatar n tn I did this mostly so I could take a decent **** by the time morning came around. So I planned it out to do my last little bunch yesterday morning. It wasn't much at all and I felt a little sick early on but nothing major. Just a little sweating and stuff. I came home and slept for like 17 hours. I woke up and felt friggin great! I worked out this morning. None of the chills, malaise, cramps, restless legs...nothing. Just feel fine.
Avatar f tn It's kind of slow around here this time of night, but hopefully someone with more experience with the symptoms of Lyrica withdrawal and tips on managing it will be along soon. Good luck to you and take care!
Avatar f tn I know that this has been from various causes, including an infection, but I hadn't been able to come up with a reason for the way I've felt off and on for the past week. Now I'm wondering if it could be withdrawal from Lyrica. For the past year I've been on 100 mg Lyrica twice a day. It's been a good while since I've thought it was helping with the burning neuropathic pain I've had, especially at night. Also, I'm gaining weight no matter what I do.
986593 tn?1283535811 Withdrawal symptoms include restlessness, insomnia, and anxiety. Withdrawal 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.
Avatar f tn I WISH I didn't have to take them, I really do but I'm a single mom and I have no other choice, I have to work. My Pyschiatrist put me on Lyrica last night, so I'm hoping that this combined with the Vicodin will help, although today has been hell....I only started the Lyrica last night but I woke up this AM feeling like someone beat me up over night....I could have cried I hurt so bad....
Avatar f tn OtisDaMan, I agree with your idea that folks can experience symptoms of tolerance with Lyrica. I am having almost something analogous. I am taking Lyrica for sleep problems, and after a brief honeymoon where I slept blissfully a few nights, my problems have returned. An accompany disorder - central sensitization for itching - has also been impacted. I am MORE itchy now than I had been previously. Lyrica was affecting both of them temporarily and then lost its effect.
Avatar n tn Can anyone tell me how long these withdrawal symptoms will last???? I'm trying to be strong and not get another refill someone give me hope this won't last forever....
333612 tn?1302886990 For example, people taking morphine, hydromorphone, or oxycodone may experience withdrawal symptoms within 6 to 12 hours of the last dose while people taking methadone will experience symptoms 3 to 4 days after the last dose. How many symptoms you experience, how long you experience them, and how severe your symptoms are depends on your body’s individual response, how long you’ve been taking the medications and the dose and type of opioid.
Avatar m tn Hey Debbie, I've been on Lyrica for years almost as long as the OxyContin. Not too much at first 150mg a day. It really helped with the leg pain at the time. After my nerve root injury it really increased like I said up to 600mg a day, which is twice the recommended dose. It really helped my leg pain but I got very depressed on it. 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.
559187 tn?1330786456 I really appreciate knowing that I wasn't the only one with these strange symptoms. How long did you take Lyrica before you decided to go off it? I think for now I'll stay on it to be sure that this is or isn't right for me. However, I don't want to stay too long because the side effects are uncomfortable. Thanks again for sharing your experiences with it. It was very helpful.
Avatar n tn so am looking (and looked) for ms contin withdrawal and for the lowest dose i am on (15 mg) if i will get withdrawal symptoms or not or if i just have to do it and see. any info will be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn There was a posting about I think Martin's recipe to help wih withdrawal. Can anone tell me how long this is going to long and what symptoms to expect.
610505 tn?1329607323 nausea, chills, yawning, lose stools....etc...etc.) To be honest, I'd rather have that then what I'm going though just being the low dose. This is the worst drug to get off of.....theyre not lying. Ive heard some people had to go back on their drug of choice until the subs out of their brain and then withdrawal from there. I just dont know what to do. My Sub Dr.
Avatar m tn Hi. I found this site on my phone when searching on withdrawal symptoms for Oxycodone. I am 43 years old, live in NE Ohio, I am a web developer, graphic artists, etc. I work from home. In early 2010 I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer and polyposis. My options were few, I had to have my entire large intestine (colon) and rectum removed. I would be getting an ileostomy (poop bag). Before this, I did chemo 7 days a week, and radiation 5 days a week, both for 5 weeks straight.
4544656 tn?1371597148 I just started to get symptoms with my last dose drop. I had severe anxiety. I realized it was withdrawal. I decided to split my dose up into thirds and spread throughout the day. This seems to be working so far. I was just wondering if anyone else has had problems getting off gaba?
Avatar f tn If I were you, I would research everything u can about the w/ds, what are the typical w/d symptoms, how long it lasts and see if u can manage it. If you start feeling really horrible, you could always go to an ER. I know that sounds drastic, but at the very least, they can check out whats going on with your body and maybe keep you at the hospital just until you get stable. Or they can refer you to a new doctor. They won't just let you walk out if you are in acute w/ds.
