Lyrica and xanax interactions

Common Questions and Answers about Lyrica and xanax interactions


Avatar m tn I am now prescribed .5mg xanax 2times a day 20 mg of valium at bed time along with lexapro and trazadone (if needed). I am also prescribed 100mg neurontin 3 times per day in between the xanax to help with withdrawal symptoms. Is this a safe cocktail and is it hard to get off neurontin?
329994 tn?1301666848 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.
667923 tn?1421466324 Don't hesitate to ask the pharmacist questions on your medications. Often they have even more knowledge with medications and interactions than your physician. Please keep in touch and let us know how you are doing. I will look forward to your updates with interest.
Avatar n tn I am a chronic patient of panic attacks, palpitation and anxiety and tried each of the above-mentioned medications, such as Librium, Valium, Ativan and Xanax. I found Ativan and Xanax more effetive and suitable. My physician has advised to add up Buspar, 5 MG combined with Xanax 0.5 MG Does somone at the Forum has some experioence and information about Buspar?
Avatar m tn However my concern is that I have been weaning off the Xanax slowly and steady for about 55 days, and the Tramadol and Vicodin I practically didn't use them since 19 days ago but I'm having since the first week and have become more intense now muscle cramps, at first they were on some points arount my scapula bones in my back, there were formed some "knots" painful and constant, very painful to the touch and frequent migraines.
452191 tn?1208758463 When one really has ADD, he/she reacts differently to adderall and the same goes for Xanax. I take lamictal, adderall, Xanax and another mood stabilizer. Im an extremely successful 31 year old with a full and amazing life. To everyone else: Be patient with your meds. Keep a journal and please know that when you get the combination right your life will change. Keeping a mood journal is so helpful. You are on the right track as long as you do not do anything against your Doctor's orders.
Avatar f tn Just google ,Lyrica w/d or When does Lyrica w/d end and you will find a bunch of forum and ppl going through hell trying to get off it! Most can't handle it! Im soo trying to be strong and deal with it! I have chronic pain already, so Im used to being in constant pain!
230262 tn?1316649534 (he said he was afraid to give me 60 -that I might gobble them up like last time- so he knows with such a small # of pills in my possession i will be forced to taper/take them sparingly, and to get through this acute stage of my current back attack ) He wants to see me in 2 weeks again, to see how my lungs are doing, and if the taper and xanax are gonna be my freedom finally. He did ask me if I wanted to try some Neurontin for pain next, and I declined.
1684282 tn?1505701570 The medical industry has to look at itself and evaluate the education of its doctors about the side effects and drug interactions. We also have learned how to listen to our patients, which is not easy with the busy schedules and busy waiting rooms. However, no matter how busy, a doctor cannot practice good medicine if he does not take time to educate him/herself and carefully listen to the patient.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar n tn I went to this site and checked the interactions of most of these drugs... and I would be concerned. There were too many interactions to post here. One doctor prescribed all of this to you? Do you get your meds at one pharmacy?
Avatar f tn Please be careful and check these medications interactions. I hope your appt. goes well tomorrow and can provide you with some answers to your pain. Take care.
687079 tn?1230952212 I went from Hyper to Hypo in 2 weeks flat from large doses of anti-thyroid meds and continuously lived off Xanax and Beta Blockers. This contined for nearly a year after diagnosis and then one day (after 3 episodes of Atrial Fibrillation in 2 weeks) I decided that I had...had enough. I stormed into the Doctors and told him that if he didnt get my thyroid taken out, I was going to get the Butcher to take it out.
Avatar f tn at the top of the page, and you can enter your meds and then it will check the interactions. I will tell you that I just did it and the list is long. Not only does it do that, but next to each medication name before you do the the interaction checker there is a little symbol that will let you view all drug interactions for that particular drug. Prazosin for example has 3 major drug interaction, 396 moderate and 2 minor drug interactions. You have a really serious list of pills there.
Avatar f tn ---- I am taking Tramadol, Vicodin, Xanax, Klonipin, Zanaflex, and they just added LYRICA about 3 mos.ago. - It's alot of med's. BUT, they understand it IS NEEDED. for this Condition. Persons with this MPS.... DO NOT become addicted to their Rx's...Because We are 'CLINICAL' CHRONIC PATIENTS. The Chemical reaction IS Different.--- The person who comes in with a broken ankle and takes High Pain Med's.for 3-4 mos. Become Addicted. THEY ARE NOT "CLINICAL' PERSONS.
563594 tn?1309586732 thanks for your input on lyrica. Nothing ever really makes me tired either, and that would be awful. I know that lyrica is very expensive too. ugh.. thanks again!
264121 tn?1313033056 Her last child was born with a very difficult glaucoma that had to be operated on at Duke at very short intervals, just weeks apart at a time, over and over and over. And I would ask after her because I just felt so badly that they were having to go through that, so hard with such a tiny little one. But her personality changed over the next year and a half or so and she became very umm...
478417 tn?1208550807 I have struggled for years with pain pills (vicodin, xanax, percocets, oxy, and codine) and would like a safe alternative. Any suggestions or advice would be great...

Avatar f tn I have no idea what is causing my symptoms because of all the side effects from medication interactions. Narcotics were never issued to me until recently and I can tell you that it is a very bad mix for people with Fibromyalgia! I asked my doctors to take me off all 13 medications that they prescribed. They agreed and told me to taper off slowly. I am doing just that and I am very ill right now. The withdrawal is hell! I cannot work right now.
544292 tn?1268886268 Good Morning Tramadol Warriors! Welcome and we're so very happy you found us. Please make yourself at home in Part 31 ...
1995824 tn?1330382649 The only place the rash has not traveled to at this poing is my face and my feet. If you look at the pictures and imagine what you see EVERYWHERE excet a few spots here and there (none on my left underside of forearm but on the right - none on my feet) - that is what 80% of my body looks like. i run a low grade fever at night. I have made the decision to stop taking Incivek as of tomorrow.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi and welcome to Part 50! Wow part 50. Please make yourself at home. Snuggle down. It'll be a bumpy ride but I know you Tramadol Warrirors can do it!
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi everyone! Welcome to Part 14! Please come in and make yourself at home. We're all glad you made it here.
Avatar m tn I'm really sorry to hear about your troubles and hope you can find some resolution. Since you say you are currently taking Lyrica, Prestiq, Betpace and Xanax and have now been prescribed Lasix, Xopenex, Advair and Spiriva, this is quite a number of pills to manage. Have you and your doctors thoroughly checked for interactions? You said this morning: "I am only angry about one thing. The doctor did not tell me there is an outside chance the drug might just kill me.....
544292 tn?1268886268 We're all very happy that you have chosen to be here with us! Please make yourself comfy, kick off your shoes and snuggle down. It's going to be a bumpy ride, but the end result is so worth it!

Avatar n tn By age 5 he was diagnosed with Akathisia and Tardive Dyskinesia, He also has Torticollis and Dystonias. He was removed from Risperdal and Clonedine and now is currently only on Keppra for seizures. My question is this: He is now 10 years old and still suffering with the effects of Tardive and most recently developed complex tics. These tics are violent in nature and he cannot sit stand or walk when he has episodes of them.
544292 tn?1268886268 Understanding is essential! You can do this. And yes. Eventually you will heal!
