Avatar f tn he also said the discomfort numbness and tingling I get on my left side of body is probably due to the syrinx and has started me on pregabalin for the discomfort whilst I await an appointment with the neurosurgeon. The neurologist also said when I asked him that it is syringomyelia that I have but usually in syringomyelia cases the syrinxes are much larger.
Avatar f tn I am scheduled to have my next drug screen on August 18. Is there a chance that the test will not cover the period at the end of July? I am not sure what type of drug screens they run, but I assume it's just a routine drug test. I really dread having to admit that I took that second pill, even though I did it in good faith. Could you share your thoughts with me? I am almost in tears! Thank you. 2.
Avatar n tn I took docs advice of taking new drug straight after Pregabalin stopped, and have had bad side effects. I have also had a blood test and it was agonising so I am feeling the after effects of that too.
Avatar f tn I constantly ran a fever (i was left on this drug for almost 12 months). My sleeping heartrate was measured by a cardiologist to average 137 beats per minute...resting/sleeping! (as proven by a hospital test where i was alsleep and NOT under stress)! My heart rate normally is half that high. I would get 'world salad' and my sentences would come out all jumbled. I stuttered. I had horrible 80's pop music phrases (or worse-- horrible dark thoughts...or maybe that isn't worse?
Avatar f tn Does Lyrica have properties the same as benzos? Can a drug test come up positive while using Lyrica?
Avatar n tn * Fibromyalgia * Neuropathic pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy * Postherpetic neuralgia The mechanism of action of pregabalin is unknown, pregabalin reduces the calcium-dependent release of several neurotransmitters, possibly by modulation of calcium channel function is probably one of the ways it can help in reducing the neurogenic pain.
Avatar n tn But since you can not tolerate the side effects, you may try Pregabalin, a drug more potent than Gabapentin. What is the cause of your neuropathy? Duloxetine is also a good suggestion for Diabetic neuropathy.
606025 tn?1342635679 No specialist help has been forthcoming, only once when i insisted on a MRI or some other scan to properly diagnose he symptoms. So when I ask for what I know works (OxyNorm - Oxycodone), I get labelled as a drug seeker. The closest I ever got to a test was an x-ray of both legs, which even the guy running the x-ray told me it was a waste of time and money. Well eight years on and still being ignored.
1253197 tn?1331212710 15 June 2011 I went with my Mum today to Frenchay Hospital for my monthly check up for the oral drug trial. I saw Dr W (Registrar) and spent over 30 minutes with him discussing my current symptoms. I said that I was still in relapse (5th week) and that I was experiencing tingling in head, legs and arms, as well as severe muscle pain in arms and it was also in legs..,particularly right leg for a few days I also had a cold sore in my nose and ongoing head aches.
Avatar f tn Gabapentin dose can be increased (to 3600 mg /day) but people don't like the side effects, and withdrawing the medication is difficult. Pregabalin (Lyrica) is a similar drug taken at 150mg TID (450mg/day) but only if you have good insurance. Pregabalin is not yet a generic medication and is very expensive. Again, women especially complain of 1) weight gain and other side effects. Long-term effects of pregabalin use are not yet understood. Neither is mode of action.
Avatar n tn 4)Pregabalin (Lyrica). Pregabalin may reduce pain and improve function in people with fibromyalgia. Pregabalin, an anti-seizure medication that's also used to treat some types of pain, is the first drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat fibromyalgia. Studies show pregabalin reduced signs and symptoms of fibromyalgia in some people. In one study, about half of the participants taking the highest doses of the drug reported at least a 30 percent improvement.
Avatar f tn If this is the case, he may benefit from the addition of a drug that addresses this kind of pain - either gabapentin (Neurontin) or pregabalin (Lyrica). You can ask your husband's oncologist if these drugs are appropriate for him.
Avatar f tn Hello Principally you have ,so i think , two methods to reduce your pain.Realistic is ,that the pain never completely disappear. When you describe a " burning pain " after Dupuytren-surgery ,then the reason must be a nerval leason of Nervus medianus.It could also be a scarification around this nervus and then there erupts pressure on this nervus.Eventually ,you can try to make a decompression,but the risk of new scarifications is very high.
Avatar f tn I suggest he'd discuss these possibilities with his doctors, and also get opinion on prescription drugs such as gabapentin or pregabalin to specifically address neuropathic type of pain. Regards.
366811 tn?1217426272 And in rare cases, people who used this stuff died or went crazy. The reporting also tell us HOW the drug works, or tell us that no one really knows how it works. The information sheet that comes with the med may say something like: "The mechanism of therapeutic action is unknown at this time," which is just a fancy way of saying, "we dunno how this stuff works." And remember that FDA approval does NOT necessarily mean the stuff works.
Avatar m tn ... and my bro was on it when he was young, after a "psychotic break." he was like a zombie on it... not to say it's not good for some.. i just don't know who!!!
Avatar f tn When I went in for my last test I told them I had taken it the previous day because I was worried they wouldn't refill them thinking I was abusing them since I ran out early. Needless to say my drug test came back negative. Now to my question, I am in the process of being referred to a pain management doctor. Is they going to cause them to turn me down and not see me as a patient?
Avatar f tn Hi, Im new here but have been reading entries on your forum for some time and find the answers very useful and have helped me with my visits to my Neurologist, he suspects MS but will not comit until all the results are in. I had my Lumbar puncture/blood test earlier this month now await my results at the end of January. I have a couple of questions if you dont mind. 1/ Does MS effect the menstrual cycle, in terms of making it heavier/prolonged cycle?
Avatar m tn Does anybody know what's causing your pain? Have you seen a Neurologist for a NCT-Nerve Conduction Test? If you've had no major accident effecting bone structure, discuss chiropractic with your doctor....most M.D.'s today do acknowledge the benefits. Is Arthritis a factor? Has anyone considered Fibromyalgia? Talk to your Dr. about Cymbalta, Lyrica. Consider any kind of exercise.
Avatar n tn the chemical name for lyrica is pregabalin it is a more potent predecessor for the anti-epileptic and neuragia pain medication is mainly prescribed for neuralgia pain, fibromyalgia, and restless leg syndrome. .it acts on the GABA neurotransmitters and other parts of the brain having unique does not cause for most people euphoria(less than 5% get euphoria at large doses), craving for the want to do it non stop, and has a very low abuse potential,.
Avatar f tn the gabapentin you are on works , i have tried it as i have the same experiences with tn, and fibromyalgia, i was just wondering have you tried pregabalin{lyrica} this is what i am on and my brother it seems to work better on me than gabapentin, my brother is on 25mg x3 daily and i am on 200mg x4 daily plus other meds , go back to your doc , there is other meds beside these to try and with trials you might find a happy medium, tc, and good luck
224049 tn?1204594715 Wait can I ask you a question you always hear that pot is the gateway drug lets put it to a test..... My first drug I ever messed with was pot it was my first high..... What was your first drug of choice that you got high on?
Avatar n tn I plan to go back to the allergist to test me for chemicals which also cause me pain from irritations. I started the injections again, but they are not calming my symptoms as they did before. and I am writing this in middle of the night since, once again, I am unable to sleep because of my leg distress and panic about what ails me. I have alot of anxiety in my life right now, death in family, new job as a manager, two young boys, etc.
Avatar m tn Duloxetine Cymbalta®, Pregabalin Lyrica®, Amitriptyline, Lisinopril HCTZ, OxyContin, Percocet, Oxycodone, Neurontin®, Opana®, Lidoderm® patch, Hydromorphone, Soma, name it, I have been compliant and done what has been asked of me in every regard. OxyContin and Oxycodone in combination Zanax XR, Cymbalta®, Soma, Lyrica®, Lisinopril HCTZ, Lidoderm® patch has been the best combination to control my pain. In late 2011, my pain became much more intense.
Avatar m tn I take Lyrica for nerve damage pain 3x75mg a day, prior to taking this drug I was unable to walk very well, had no sleep due to pain etc so for those reasons it has been a great remedy, however...
Avatar n tn There are a variety of other neuropathic pain medications you could try (assumming part of the pain is from a nerve), including a new one called Pregabalin (just approved this month) Botox is pretty good for muscular pain - maybe bigger doses may be needed, a minority of patients develop antibodies which reduce the effectiveness of Botox - use of Myobloc another form of Botulinum toxin is then helpful.
Avatar f tn For neuropathic pain, another medication like gabapentin (Neurontin) or pregabalin (Lyrica) should be added. As for the CA 27-29 blood test, I agree with your consultant that this is probably unnecessary. Monitoring treatment efficacy of the oncolet or the chemotherapy is best done by observing the size of the metastatic nodules in her liver. Decrease in number and size of these metastases is a better gauge of the effectiveness of treatment than CA 27-29 levels.
Avatar m tn If you don't like gabapentin, you may prefer its cousin pregabalin better. I went that route and did not like the gabapentin stuff, but I've been on pregabalin now for a few years and I like it a lot. I would say you have peripheral neuropathy from your cervical spine injury in the accident, and I would also say that your injury has perhaps gotten worse (unless this feels like it did in the beginning).
Avatar f tn Lyrica: "DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Pregabalin is an oral medication that is chemically related to gabapentin. It is used for treating pain caused by neurologic diseases such as neuropathic pain, postherpetic neuralgia as well as seizures." I had EMG's which included the needle test and nerve conduction. In 2001 It showed Carpal tunnel in right wrist only, in 2006 both, now these nerve entrapments seem to be moving around.
