Lyrica generic equivalent

Common Questions and Answers about Lyrica generic equivalent


Avatar n tn When a drug patent runs out, a (usually much) less-expensive generic drug comes onto the market, which is chemically and medically equivalent to the brand-name drug. If he's saying what I think he's saying, I'd like to know what the difference here could possibly be. How could the the equivalent be different?...and if its different, how could it be equivalent? If not, what does the other answer mean? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.

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........

Avatar m tn chosen=69000 Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. has announced the launch of the generic equivalent to Baraclude (entecavir) tablets, 0.5 mg and 1.0 mg, in the U.S. Teva was the first to file, making the product eligible for 180 days of marketing exclusivity.
1218873 tn?1300091216 Both my neuro and my GP said this was fine. I was also told that the equivalent dose of Lyrica to 1800 mg of gabapentin (which is what I was taking) was 150 mg. So instead of taking 300 mg of gabapentin 6 times a day, I switched (all at once) to 50 mg of pregabalin.
Avatar n tn I take synthroid and there is no generic for it. Maybe the new med is generic and less potent at the lower dosage.

Avatar f tn I've done a little bit of research on this - not a lot, but some - and from what I see Acella is not a "generic" of Armour. A generic is a product made by another company that is equivalent to the brand name. Acella is not equivalent to the current Armour formulation, therefore, is not a generic of Armour.
Avatar m tn So, since I lost my health insurance I have had to buy generic Synthroid online from one of those Canadian Pharmacy things that sends those spam-type emails I was broke and almost out of meds so I took the bait. All has been well with it until I started having some really horrible night terrors. I'm talking NIGHT TERRORS, the kind that leave you paralyzed upon waking up. I didnt know if maybe it was because I went to buy GENERIC synthroid rather than the name brand. is that any different?
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.
6773374 tn?1386033210 Acetaminophen of a small dose, Tylenol or a generic equivalent. If you are worried about taking something, ask your doctor. They will tell you.
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 f tn t afford to buy my own generic right now.Does anyone know of a generic equivalent patch that the drug company will give me for free?
798555 tn?1292787551 Major stopped manufacturing their brand of generic dessicated (Armour equivalent) forever. But I found a few months available. Although 1 grain equals 65mg not 60 like Armour. More weight in fillers I guess, as it has 38 mgT4 and 9 mg T3 per grain just like Armour. My question is for any one that has used this Major Thyroid in the past and also used Armour. Could you tell a difference, any side effects I need to look for? Odd brand.
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 Yeah, you should be on at least 600mg of Gabapentin to be equivalent to the 100mg of Lyrica (approximately). Lyrica made me gain weight too. Have you tried Topamax? That one makes you lose weight. It's an anti-seizure med too. Just a thought.
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.
959341 tn?1246884689 s. I took Neurontin for a long time before Lyrica came on the market. With Lyrica, I had alot of swelling my legs and a craving for sweets. Whether a craving for sweets is a side-effect, I doubt the drug maker would admit it. But I did gain weight. And weight gain is my worst enemy. I have fought being over-weight most of the last 40 years. Neurontin works well for some people, so do anti-seizure medications.
