Common Questions and Answers about Lyrica libido


Avatar f tn lyrica can cause a decrease in libido i think, it did for me.. gensing can increase blood flow, which threoticaly may increase sexual stimulation, but not neccisarily libido. the others im not sure... a lot is not understood about female sexuality or herbs.. ingeneral i dont think a lot of them help... for me when i was younger i took gurana as a stimulate like caffine this did make me more receptive but im not sure how safe it is...
Avatar n tn I started taking Lyrica for fibro about 6 months ago. I feel better than I've felt in years. My pain is less and I don't feel like I have the flu when I wake up each morning. I love it! But, I've had some problems in the last couple of months. I have sores on my tongue very often. You can't see them but it's underneath the skin and hurts all the time. I also have experienced difficulty in orgasm with the Lyrica. Has anyone else experienced these side effects?
1657572 tn?1302277463 Does taking Cymbalta and Lyrica cause weight gain? I have gained over 20 pounds and never had a problem with weight gain before. Also take Malt X for migraines. I also have a great loss in libido..
Avatar m tn The first symptoms I noticed were fatigue, no libido, chronic insomnia, ED and testicular shrinkage. Then I started having constant sharp pain, burning, stinging in both my feet, calfs, knee (mostly right leg). I started noticing peeing and bowel movement was becoming difficult (trouble starting, frequency). Then started having testicular pain and sharp pain in the rectum (Urologist diagnosed rectum pain as pelvic floor problem and physical therapy has been helping the rectum pain only).
Avatar m tn Hi Augy, I am sorry that you are experiencing this side effect. Your right that it needs to be addressed. One of the side effects of Lyrica is decrease in libido. Hydrocodone lists the side effect as altered sex drive. Everyone responds differently but I take hydrocodone and have not experienced that side effect. I do not take lyrica. Unfortunately you are taking two medications that can mess with your libido. It may be the combination of the two for you.

Avatar n tn i'm a small woman and this is a lot, i used t ofit into my high school close without even trying, now i have outgrown all clothes. any one else have this problelm? also, very low libido since cymbalta. anyone know any alternatives that are no tprescription? iu take it fo the offlabel fibro.
Avatar f tn It also seems to have an overall calming effect on my mood, and not so desirably, on libido. Lyrica is somewhat indiscriminate in the neural paths that it affects, which is presumably one of the reasons that such a range of side-effects are common. However, as I have increased my daily dose, I have noticed that the amount of pain I experience has diminished in proportion to the dosage. I'm using 600mg/day, having tried 150, 300, and 450 mg/day.
Avatar m tn Nerve Studies show there is no structural problem. I've been placed on Lyrica, though I am yet to feel any pain relief from the drug, I already lost libido totally and no erotic sensation on my penis.
1467200 tn?1311263036 Have hair falling out, fatigue, depression, insomnia, fluid retention, numerous headaches, brittle fingernails, and fibromylagia. Am on Lyrica and Cymbalta. do you think that this could be hypothyroidism?
Avatar f tn I have rheumatoid arthritis and having problems controlling it. I am on 40mg humira every other week. June 2007 - March 2008 I was on Enbrel and prednisone. I started on 10mg prednisone daily in June of 2007 and reduced it to 2 mg daily currently since December 2007. I am also very fatigued, have no libido, skin rashes here and there, my hands have "hot spots" of red and swollen flesh which moves around every few days.
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.
939964 tn?1288020624 I wake up typically 2 to 4 times per night, usually have to use the bathroom when I do, then go back to bed, usually able to return to sleep, but again, I do NOT typically enter REM sleep (dream). Is Lyrica safe to take for the other conditions I have, and if so, what are the side effects and dangers? I do also have an allergy to pennicillin and a few grasses, trees, foods, etc. Any suggestions as to what I can try next for sleep?
4852890 tn?1360045418 finally was diagnosed with this big word. I was put on lyrica and it made me feel like i wanted to kill myself. dr took me off of it and all thoes feeling went away. i have been dealing with this for 12 years. doctors taged me as a pain pill seeker. i have never been adicted to anything in my life. so irritating. now i have had a tummy tuck that was medicaly nessary due to a seroma that went from hip to hip. Life has just gotten worse and worse. i hurt so bad some days that all i can do is cry.
Avatar f tn his symptoms now are - severe dizziness (walks into things all the time or trips), he's tired all the time, sleeps a lot or cant sleep at all, low libido, racing thoughts, like someone is switching tv channels in his head all the time. i made a silly atempt to get him to stop taking them. he thinks of himself as tough and strong and i told him that xanax is his weakness. was it like a really bad thing to say to an addict? cuz hes still mad at me about that, really mad.
449658 tn?1211307922 while sleeping)-home sleep study -lack of energy (difficult to exercise) - tender to the touch -loss of libido -bloating/gas -depression (thoughts of suicide) -most blood tests appear normal for the most part: (see below) -evidence of prior epstein-barr -ESR - 11 mm/hr -TSH - 1.69 uIU/mL -cortisol - 9.5 ug/dL - Free T4 - 1.
Avatar f tn Also, fibromyalagia is a medical condition that leads to whole body pains, and is best treated with medications such as lyrica and neurontin, exercise, and physical therapy. Your symptoms may be MS related. It is difficult to tell given I don’t have the luxury to review your medical records and do a physical examination. It is encouraging that you have had normal MRIs. If you are currently having symptoms, it would be best to have your symptoms re-evaluated by a neurologist.
Avatar f tn hey thanks stargazer. i have no libido at all and the few times i am with out pain i sure would like to love my husband. he is so handsome. I went off Lyrica and feel better but i am sure it is the cymbalta..also i am concerned about kidneys and liver. i am not really depressed. i get depressed because the pain keeps me from accomplishing things. No antidepressant will help that..
Avatar f tn Ihave tried Cymbalta, didn't do anything for me, also Lyrica for fibro, still no help, I'm not sure if I have tried Pristiq but have been on almost every med for depression, stay with the Wellbutrin because as I previously explained, It doesn't make you tired, also is know not to have sexual side effects(most decrease your libido) and if you smoke or use tobacco products it contains the same properties found in the drug they prescribe to help quit; so that may be an added bonus for you.
Avatar n tn The other thing is that i still get pain in my back at work and i will end up having to substitute it with something else when i stop to be able to work, so i can't win. It also effects my libido. I am a young man and as otherwise normal before but now my desire for that is much less than before. My doctor didn't warn me what could happen when taking these pills and i am so angry for that, i would never have started.
Avatar f tn I tend to follow.Some of the effects I will miss..appetite supresion,the really good libido-oh my god its good.But I dont need to be so amped up for sex so much.Crazy.I also found out- there is no antidepressant in ultram/tramadol.That makes me feel way better.I know where to go to be evaluated for treatment.I wanna wait until my son comes home on leave 2/6/09.Then Ill go.Thank you for listening to me and connecting with me.I don't feel so alone anymore......
Avatar n tn After starting off with first generation meds years ago, at present, I have found some better relief on Lyrica. And the dosage has to be determined for each individual patient. Some need more, some need less. I was used by this point to pay close attention to my symptoms, and the standard starting dose of Lyrica for me was almost as bad a Cymbalta was for me.
Avatar n tn well here is a little different take, I am the one (female) that has 0 sex drive, I have really bad nerve damage from lower back and legs, I am on Lyrica ( for nerves) and then was on opiates 25 days clean and I would love to have my sex drive back. 5 years ago when I meant T we had great sex and we are older than most of you but after the nerve damage and my opiates I don't want it. So is there hope for me, after I have been clean for awhile or is it the Lyrica and nerve damage??????
Avatar n tn I have had a CT scan which came up clear. Recently I have been prescribed Lyrica 75 gram. This is apparently the strongest painkiller that can be given and it has had no effect. No other painkiller has worked during a flare up. My pain management doctor has said I may need an operation if the situation persists. Have you ever come across a similar situation? I am a 26 year old male otherwise in quite good health. My problem has interfered greatly with the quality of life I have now.
Avatar n tn My symptoms were (are) dizzy headaches excessive bloating excessive weight gain no response to exercise hair loss insomnia acne anxiety extreme irritability joint pain itchiness loss of libido estrogen dominance
Avatar n tn Paxil - blacked out and had extreme panic attacks third day of dosing Lexapro - felt like a tweaker for the week that I took it and had a racing heart, chills, felt like I was high, and always felt on the verge of a panic attack Lyrica - was FANTASTIC for the first few days then I had a panic attack so bad that I was stuck in the bathroom at work for over 45 minutes just wishing I would die.
Avatar n tn -) But the seisures caused me untold grief with the Motor Vehicle Department. I believe the higher the dose the more likely the seisure and as far as I know nothing such as too much coffee contributes. It's the drug and your particular body chemistry. More and more is being written about the connection between Wellbutrin and seisures please do some in depth homework.
975514 tn?1325001538 want to compare meds - have heard toperamate may be as good as Lyrica. Am also on Cymbalta for a 3rd try. Don't think the Lyrica is helping but pain doc says better than Gabapentin. I have a grandchild due in April and my sons wedding in July. So depressing, was in the best shape I'd been in years at a job I loved and had to give up and nervous I won't be in very good shape for these happy occasions. Find visiting for 2 hours very taxing and can't get comfortable anywhere after.
Avatar n tn It is a different story now however. No morning wood. No libido. If I am able to get an erection it doesn't last long. Visual stimuli has no effect, I have to use my hand and that doesn't work very well. When flacid, my penis is smaller now. The skin feels different--less sensitive. I see veins where I couldn't see any before. When I walk around, it feels like I don't even have a penis anymore. It feels like nothing is there.
Avatar n tn Anyway, over the next 6 months or so I had a series of progressive symptoms, severe burning in my feet, groin pain, complete loss of libido, burning sensations in my back and persistent headaches accompanied by an unusual sensation of cold and pain deep in my ears, although a hearing test has turned up no detectable problems.
