Lyrica generic

Common Questions and Answers about Lyrica generic


5333788 tn?1366569346 Was told that I was going through withdrawal symptoms from the Lyrica. Can this be possible even though I was taking Lyrica for a short period of time? Sorry if this does not make sense. Have been seen by a few doctor's, gone through many tests, the list goes on........
591546 tn?1244636545 My doctor says he doesn't like the way lyrica works so he prescribed Cymbalta ( an anti-depressant even though i'm not depressed) and Soma ( a muscle relaxant) I have to say, the combination has done wonderul things to help treat my pain from fybro, Txsilver is so right, don't just sit back and take the pain, County Hospitals have to treat you and with generic ( although I'm not sure cymbalta has a generic yet) you might find payment options that you can live with. Best of luck!
Avatar m tn How do you pay for Lyrica?, I take one 75 MG in a.m and one 75mg at noon and two 75mg's at bedtime for treatment of FMS and it's costing me $384 a month.
Avatar f tn m in the same boat except I cannot take the generic I have to have Lyrica. With the others I have trouble breathing. I have a damaged spinal nerve root from a failed fusion. An epidural did help way more than a nerve block. I also take tizanidine and hydrocodone. I used a E-stem and Dragontree (online) have some awesome pain patches. Carry on.
Avatar m tn He had me try an older generic, and of course I said it didn’t work. Now, I am thing about trying Lyrica to control my pain. However, reading the side affects it seems a bit scary and I want to be 100% mentally. Is Lyrica a viable, or even a good non-narcotic option to control pain? Does it even work?
Avatar f tn I just find that neurontin has basically no side effect and Lyrica does. I took Lyrica and the next day I was 10 times worse off due to pain and fatigue. But you have to decide for yourself whether this is the right drug for you. Remember if you do take it you have to have a card with you that states this in case of emergency where you cannot tell them yourself. I just read this site and was warned to not get pregnant that it would not be a good idea.
Avatar m tn I went to my Dr. and he told me to taper off 2-7.5 hydro's & replace them with 2 -- Lyrica 75mg. I'm still on 3--.5mg xanax as well as prozac /heart pills and prevacid .I never use more than prescribed .Should I just deal with life without meds .I'm having trouble going to NA & AA because I still feel like I'm useing. I have been clean of my addiction drug for 6 months . Am I fooling myself thinking I won't abuse these new " "Prescribed "meds.
Avatar f tn I have tried Lyrica with no change in symptoms started taking Ralivia (Tramadol) last winter found that it was helpful for pain but when I went to stop taking this went through huge withdrawal symptoms was horrible. Am currently taking T#3/Advil for pain sometimes Percocet for really bad days. I do not want to take these analgisics as they are also highly addictive. Anyone know of any other meds without narcotic that have been helpful for treatment of symptoms? .
14548893 tn?1435103687 I am currently taking Gabapentin which is generic for Neurontin. It is similar to Lyrica. I am dizzy on 400 but can tolerate 300. Maybe they can lower your dose until you get used to it.
5333788 tn?1366569346 You need a lot more neurotin to equal Lyrica. It is similar but neurotin is much weaker than Lyrica and you have to take a ton to have the same effect. I preferred Lyrica but it was too expensive. I have learned that all of these drugs have withdrawals however we don't abuse them like opiates.
Avatar m tn Hi every one. I've been a diabetic for almost 10 yrs now and have neuropathy as well as chronic back/ neck pain. I also have some pretty severe nerve damage in my legs from my back injury and had back surgery in 2007. Any way, I take lyrica twice a day 150 mg in am & 150 mg at night, and it has really helped alot with the pain. Im also on norco for my back / neck pain, but the lyrica has been a great help to me. However it is expensive if you don't have insurance.
Avatar f tn I went to my PMP the 1st ofJanuary, 2012, to get my MSContin and Oxycodone scripts. He gave me a random UA test for MSContin, Oxycodone (for breakthrough pain), and Lyrica. This is the first drug test from him in 2-3 years. I had been taking less of my MSContin and Lyrica because of being in the"donut-hole" of Med.D script plan and , also trying to resolve co-pay of MSContin-generic back down to tier exception lower cost co-pay.
Avatar m tn My pain doctor prescribed Lyrica about a year ago, but I wanted to stick to my Hydro/Tram/Benzo cocktail at that time. Also, when I received my venomous bite that also sliced through my hand breaking it and slicing through nerves and tendons, the hand specialist recommended Lyrica. I actually tried it a few days ago and it it awesome at just 50 MG 2 times a day. No more pain and I sleep like a baby. It acts directly on nerves by mimicking nerve fluid and calms them.
Avatar f tn I've taken Gabapentin (generic Neurontin) for almost 4 years along with other meds. It seems to help my severe nerve damage in my shin.
Avatar f tn Hi...Gabapentin is not a generic for Lyrica, but Neurontin...Lyrica is used to treat Fibromyalgia....and many times chiari is mis-dx'd as Fibro...the symptoms for chiari r similar to many diff conditions which is y getting a dx can be diff and many drs r more familiar with the other conditions then they r with chiari, so they feel it can not be chiari.
Avatar n tn I take a cousin to your Epleptin, which the generic for yours is Gabapentin, and mine is Pregabalin or Lyrica. I have a lot of pain in my body from tearing up my back in a car accident years ago, it really helps it so much, and I think it will help your headaches a lot. Also, it is an anti-seizure type drug, so it helps with people who have musculature trouble. Also, once you get used to the drug, sometimes doctors will increase the dose until you reach a plateau of comfort.
15227985 tn?1439629482 Isn't gabapentin generic for Lyrica? I was under the impression that it in itself IS addictive and yes, you can have w/d from it? Please inform me if this is wrong?
1378325 tn?1285346625 Thank you for the response. My Rhuemetologist doesn't take too much stock in Lyrica and such, so no I do not take them. I was taking generic Vicodin for a month or so after being on Relafen for 10 yrs., did not help.
1359227 tn?1282522148 Dear Shorty, I have taken two types of gaba drugs, Neurontin and Lyrica, and they both killed my lumbar back pain that NO OTHER medicine touched, including a mild codeine medicine I take for my legs. The first one I took was Lyrica (sertraline) and OVERNIGHT my low back pain was gone. I really like that medicine. But at some point, it became so expensive (my private insurance didn't cover it as good as my current Medicare), that I had to go over to Neurontin.
1041953 tn?1259072690 Hey, all.... :) A quick summary of where I'm at - About three weeks ago I shared on the Substance Abuse Forum that my sole goal right now in ridding myself of the benzo monsters for good was to simply stick to my Klonopin prescription for now - to not abuse it, to not run short, and not to resort to using my husband's Xanax. I then eventually want to work on tapering down and off. For two weeks I was doing supremely well, and was secretly proud of my baby-steps victory.
Avatar f tn I am wondering if there is another med for nerve pain besides Lyrica and Neurontnin? I have tried both. I am taking 200mg of Lyrica 2x a day right now and I feel like I have a 9 volt battery stuck to my tongue. I have 8-10 other random hot needle spots right now among tingling and other typical annoying parasthesias. I did just finish a steriod treatment and have trouble coming down from it.
Avatar f tn d like to make the switch from this effete, ersatz, generic fluoxetine 80 mg/day to Vivactil (brand only, not the generic protriptyline), because the change can take place almost as once -- no washout periods to disable my functioning completely that I have read about, yet. I was just wondering if anyone felt like posting how they extol the virtues of Vivactil -- good experiences, troubles, complications, or even people who hated it!
Avatar f tn he also changed my medication from lyrica (no generic and very expensive!!) to nuraton. no MS which i was very concerned about it. i am still having the severe breast pain. i have had a mammogram and ultrasound. the findings of which show that i have an asymmetric density in the breast that i am having the pain. because of the pain and the fact that my mother had 2 primary breast cancers, they are sending me for an MRI of the breast on february 11.
Avatar f tn For several years I have taken Cymbalta generic brand which works very well. Recently( with the past several weeks) my doctor changed my prescription to gabapentin. Last year I was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease which could have developed from the drug and dexilant. This is another reason why my prescription was changed to gabapentin because it is believed that the Cymbalta can also damage even further my kidneys.
773646 tn?1239225659 I have been on both and find Lyrica more effective at a lower dose. Gabapentin, the generic version of Neurontin is very inexpensive. Lyrica which doesn't have a generic available yet, is pretty darned expensive if your insurance doesn't cover it. Its worth discussing with your Doctor at any rate. I know that buzzing is annoying and wears on the nerves!
1805240 tn?1317228731 Lyrica is sometimes considered a stronger form of gabapentin. Gabapentin is generic for Neurontin and Lyrica is brand name for Pregabalin. There have been several posts online from patients taking Lyrica, saying that the side effects are more severe than with Gabapentin. I have never tried Lyrica so I don't know if that would be the case for me. Everyone is different though.
