1218873 tn?1300091216 Hi i wondered if anyone could explain there experience of Pregabalin (Lyrica?) i have been on Gabapentin for the last 3 months with only a little success (the twitches have reduced considerably) but no relief pain.

Avatar f tn I have been taking Lyrica for over 15 years. It helped with chronic and diabetic nerve pain. I have gone from 500 a day down to 200 a day. I cannot sleep at night, gained weight and have severe itching and may have suicide ideology. If there is another drug you can take, take it.

1039200 tn?1314912008 Has anyone heard of Pregabalin (lyrica) for bipolar or anxiety? - my doctor wants me to try, but I have not heard about it before and would like to know if anyone here has tried it or knows anyone who has. Is it used as a mood stabiliser? - I can't find it on the web site ILADVOCATE recomended me a long time ago, does this mean it's not a mood stabiliser or just a new brand?
Avatar m tn Hello Papagarv1, Welcome. Sorry I am late in responding to your question. You've asked for no judgement - you won't get that from me. Very sadly ppl in chronic pain have been driven to all kinds sources to treat it. I don't condone buying opiates off the street, especially such a complex med like Methadone. Her risks are very very high! Please do your research. My concern is for her physical safety. Now I'll shut up and answer your question.
901222 tn?1399142874 Lyrica (pregabalin) is a GABA analogue, similar to Neurontin (gabapentin). Even though pregabalin is approved for The results are still out on whether or not people suffer neurological dependance on this medication. People using high doses of pregabalin (> 1000 mg/day) report problems stopping this medication. My attitude about certain reported side-effects, like weight gain, is that I'll never know what they'll do to me until I try.
Avatar f tn Prozac (fluoxetine) and Lyrica (pregabalin) (Moderate Drug-Drug) MONITOR: Central nervous system- and/or respiratory-depressant effects may be additively or synergistically increased in patients taking multiple drugs that cause these effects, especially in elderly or debilitated patients. MANAGEMENT: During concomitant use of these drugs, patients should be monitored for potentially excessive or prolonged CNS and respiratory depression.
2107676 tn?1388973859 Your explanation of pregabalin vs. name brand Lyrica makes perfect sense, Pat, from what I've read. Seems as if Pfizer's patent is pretty much "locked in" until late 2018 which means only the ingredient "pregabalin" can be generically produced....NOT a generic likeness of the EXACT same drug. This may interest you: 'Is Pregabalin a Generic Lyrica?" "No, it isn't. Pregabalin is the active ingredient in Lyrica, not a generic version of the drug.
1218873 tn?1300091216 Ask your dr if this is necessary. I switched last winter cold turkey. 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 m tn Lyrica (pregabalin) is a more potent form of gabbapentin, it is an anti convulsant drug, which is also used for neuropathic pain and generalized anxiety disorder. It can also have some serious side effects just like gabbapentin, which include depression, drowsiness, and suicidal tendencies. Not something I would want to run out and get for wd's. It must be carefully monitored by your Doc.
Avatar f tn I saw that if a man fathers a child while taking Lyrica, the baby may have birth defects. My daughter's fiance' was just put on Lyrica and I read this. They will be getting married soon and will want to start a family within the next year. How conclusive and accurate is this statement? HELP!!!!
210982 tn?1280983895 Hello! My Dr prescribed me Lyrica and I have been readin about this drug, but I can't seem to find anything telling me what is in it. Does anyone know the ingredients? I was told it was a non-narcotic drug but then the leaflet says that it can be addictive and do not stop immediately..blah,blah, blah...does anyone know what is in this stuff?
3122908 tn?1342154651 ll prescribe something else....keeping in mind that my pregabalin (Lyrica) is very expensive and SOME insurances do not cover it. If you are just tired of taking the medicine, that's up to you, but you will notice the pain again very quickly, within a day or two at most.
Avatar n tn Prescribed 20 mg prozac for 15 years because I suffered from panic attacks. During my 15th yr. at 20mg prozac I suffered a panic attack and Dr. upped my dose to 40 then 60mg. Did not have another panic attack, but could not overcome the anticipatory fear of having another attack. Dr. included 50 BID of Lyrica three weeks ago and I'm feeling normal again. Anyone have any experience with lyrica?

Avatar f tn It does help some individuals but for others it is simply not effective. Lyrica (Pregabalin) is generally effective in treating nerve pain. I assume with the reduced blood supply to your wrist it is effecting all the tissues and bones including your nerves. I also suggest that you see another orthopedic surgeon or specialist. If treatments is not providing you good pain relief than at the very least you deserve to be comfortable. There are more potent medications that can bring that comfort.
Avatar m tn On Pregabalin (lyrica) since August 2017. Blood sugars are raised in the morning. Is there a non-opioid, non-NSAID alternative?
Avatar f tn Hello melal, It seems that you are having nerve compression due to the impact on the wrist.
Avatar f tn While pregabalin, known as "Lyrica" in the States, has unlabeled uses for GAD and SAD, (Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Social Anxiety Disorder) it is primarily prescribed here for fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain associated with peripheral neuropathy. Nowhere can I find that it is beneficial for sleep problems, although one of it's side effects IS "fatigue," I don't think that is the desired effect for a sleep aid.
Avatar n tn I have had the symptoms since March 09. I am taking Lyrica (Pregabalin). and Cesamet. They seem to be working more or less. Sometimes I top off the the pain medication by vaporizing bud. Lyrica is used in the Treatment of neuropathic pain in adults. Cesamet is synthetic THC. It's a nasty thing to have. I believe that the problem is the pain. Kill the pain as much as possible so you can do physio and keep moving. The worse time for me is the morning and then very late at night.
