    Lyrica for Arthritis; Fibromyalgia

    Hey, just tell me about my experiences with Lyrica. Suffering for years from anxiety disorder, pain in various joints. Have been taking Valoron, Opipramol and Pantoprazole for my stomach for 5 years. Since I did not get my last pain boost under control, I went to the hospital. It was found that I have polyarthritis and fibro. Now I got Lyrica prescribed. Now the theater started. Got started with 50mg and should first to 150mg Was surprised that 50mg led to my tingling in hands and feet stopped and could sleep wonderfully without pain. Did not worry me until I was dizzy, only tired and limp. I increased the dose to 150mg, now even more depression came along, but at the moment I manage to do my household work. Before 13 o’clock I’m not used at all, besides, I’m always cold. My blood pressure is currently 100/75/64 and that with 8 cups of coffee. I also start to cry because everything is too much for me. Now even speech disorders have come to it too I forget a lot, my stomach is not synonymous with (stomach pain) I will cease the Lyrica to 50-70mg.Mal see if I feel better then.

    Lyrica for Syringomyelia; Disc prolapse; Fibromyalgia

    I had very good experiences in the first months with Lyrica and Tilidin, had barely noticeable negative side effects, except that unfortunately I talk more than normal. Lyrica also had an anxiety-relieving and relaxing effect on me. However, my memory bothers me a little. In the last few months, Lyrica seems strangely paradoxical in the morning, mentally I feel mentally very bad for almost 1 hour after taking it, then it improves, but it does not help as much in the morning as it did in the beginning. The analgesic effect is not as good in the morning as it was in the beginning. Strangely, the combination helps me in the evening, preferably in the afternoon but then again very well. I can hardly say anything about Actonel in the short time it takes.

    Side effects: Memory disorders

    Lyrica for Pain (joint); Disc prolapse; Fibromyalgia; Pain (acute)

    I have been taking Tilidin for several years. First, I got Novaminsulfone … but did not help. After that I got Tramadol … was not effective for me either. For about 5 years I take Tilidine comp. First, normally dosed 30-30-30 …. now I’m at 70-70-70 +80 (+ sometimes at night to 80 drops) + 1Kaps.Lyrica in the morning. I get additional Lyrica for 2 months, because the effect of the drops is no longer sufficient, but occasionally get stomach pain. It works very well though. So far I have not been able to find any other side effects. Certainly I am in a certain dependence … still better than having to endure this pain on a daily basis.

    Side effects: Dependence

    Lyrica for Fibromyalgia; Pain (chronic)

    Katadolon had no effect on me and no side effects. Tramadolor had no effect, but made stomach problems. Lyrica had a lot of side effects of severe restlessness with anxiety, insomnia and strong mental fluctuations. Tilidine was very effective in the beginning, well tolerated and I can only recommend. Leaves now after 18 months, the effect of habituation process!

    Side effects: Anxiety states; Insomnia; Unrest

    Lyrica for Fibromyalgia

    MST: The first 3 days after switching from Tilidine to MST, I was struggling with nausea, vomiting, dizziness, drowsiness, fatigue, loss of appetite, and the like – but these subsided after a few days. In the case of 150 mg of MST, daily trivialities remained, such as a sensitive stomach (too much sun or even very little alcohol, eg some eggnog on an ice = vomiting) and constipation. The much-discussed fatigue in taking morphine has settled rather than increased, which could have something to do with the fact that I have previously been on chron. Tiredness suffered. I am happy to accept these tiny ailments because MST (and similar drugs such as morphine ratiopharm) is the only remedy so far (after countless attempts with other medications and treatments), which at least for the most part (70-80%) depending on the form of the day), so that I can at least master my everyday life for a while. Somewhat impractical is sometimes the fact that one must take the sustained-release tablets after the clock, but even that guarantees only a seamless pain relief. After having missed / forgotten a pill a few times over the last few years, I have been reminded many times about how it feels without MST (and have appreciated it even more since then) – as the pain in In this case are unbearable, I can say little about the addictiveness – but you notice purely from the slowly rising pain level after about 1/2 hour that the tablet is missing. Diclo-Divido: Has shown absolutely no side effects for me – in contrast to the pure Dicolfenac, which is said to be harmful to the stomach as a result and also quickly caused nausea. Since the active ingredient in the Diclo-Divido capsules is combined with sodium pearls, the risk to the stomach here is much, much less. Although the capsules only work properly when I take them at the first sign of jaw pain, but so you learn to at least listen to your own body. Tetrazepam: I take for many years when needed when my muscles are cramping so much that I can not get up without screaming in pain, not getting an eye at night because everything is cramping or twitching. After about 1/2 – 1 hour, the effect occurs and makes me (at least personally – perhaps in combination with the morphine) tired, bleischwer, calm and skin completely gone , so that you can no longer feel the pain, because you sleep deeply, firmly and dreamless (almost comatose). In extreme situations, it is worth it in any case – however, the intake is dependent on your own course of the day – if you have work, driving a car, children’s hats or the like, you should choose a different remedy. Responsiveness, concentration, alertness, and exercise are so severely limited that you feel both rubbery and physically like rubber. In bad convulsions this condition appears pleasant, in everyday life very obstructive. I take one tablet per puff and a blistering 2-4 tablets a month and have rarely (at most once a year) found a rather strange side effect on me – in these rare cases it seems to me that the side effects described above are reversed. At the same time I am a little bit of a scare at the same time but at the same time completely euphoric and stoned – laugh a lot without reason and at the same time I am so clear that this behavior confuses and surprises me. Lyrica: About 3 years ago, a doctor had the idea to use morphine to relieve the daily pain of fibromyalgia with the help of Lyrica. The basic idea seemed good – gradually the morphine should be discontinued, Lyrica should be increased. So I skipped around 20% of the morphine dose and took Lyrica for it. Already after the first tablet, the side effects were fully increased. The pain did not improve – the lack of morphine was clearly noticeable, but I was constantly bad, I got blurred vision, could not hold myself straight and had the feeling to be packed in cotton – in the steps I still hinbekam I felt my feet were not on the ground, everything in me heard as from far away, I could only speak very slowly and with difficulty. Hoping that this condition would soon be over, I continued taking the medication, causing me to linger about 22 hours each day I was under Lyrica, jarring, anxious, sad, and shivering the rest of the time Pain was spent – until relatives called the doctor who had prescribed the remedy and I was able to resume it with their help. However, the described side effects slowly dissipated and were still felt about 3 days later. For me personally, Lyrica is therefore an absolute horror remedy and the Tats

    My Experiences Part 2: Dosage: 150mg In The Morning And 75mg In The Evening When I reduced this amount to about 3 years ago, some of the side effects were gone. And if someone asks me what exactly … always pondering. Because if you take several medications and fibromyalgia, a definition for me at some point was not possible. It superimposes one or the other. And if an antibiotic or something similar comes along, it will be impossible for me to say which problem is coming from where. But one thing is for sure: My breast is not growing for 2 years 🙂 And I can just run 🙂 However, Lyrica has not really fixed my problem, I must confess. I notice that since I struck her. More soon.

    Part 3: The Withdrawal After reading one or the other, and getting annoyed with these drugs lunacy … I dropped Lyrica. And in 25mg steps over about 2-3 weeks. And many say yes there would be no withdrawal symptoms in Lyrica. So I can tell other things. Any reduction became worse and worse. I got sweats that I was scared of. During the day with every little effort I started to sweat. At night I changed (every night!) The nightgown 3-4 times, because the sweat dripped from me. Sleep … almost impossible. Mental headache and absolute morning sickness (no no pregnancy). And then the pain came … I call it a body ache, because it comes closest to it. 3 weeks ago I took the last Lyrica. And the headaches are gone. The exuberance goes like this. Have now 4 nights as good as not sweaty. But sweating in general is still. And it totally annoys. First a kind of hot flash and then I’m wet. Outside at 3 degrees I run around in the T-shirt. And the body aches are getting worse. I’m a little bit desperate … but I hope so.

    Lyrica for Fibromyalgia; Pain (acute)

    Part 1 of my experience: Dosage 3x 200mg daily During this time, I had determined 80% of the side effects as commonly reported. What annoyed me most was the constant thirst and that I’ve gained almost 20kg so far. In addition, the excess was initially very uncomfortable. But after a few months, most of the side effects went away by themselves. Only slight excess, often headaches, bad sleep and lack of concentration were always. I also had one of the rare side effects. But until you noticed that, it was almost a year of guessing. Because suddenly my chest grew. I always had cup size A- and today I filled C’s. Is not bad … others operate, I took Lyrica;). In addition, from time to time still came to walk, so I had the feeling not to be present and could barely walk. Since I was therefore unable to work anymore (among other things), the dosage lagsam was reduced. More about it soon.

    Lyrica for Anxiety disorders; Sleep disorders; Fibromyalgia; Depression; Pain (chronic)

    Great site, thanks to all diligent writers !! I have 10 kilos in just 3 months through the above medicine combo. My doctor says that especially the mirtazapine is to blame. I have a constant and extreme feeling of hunger. I notice dizziness especially in conversation with other people (my concentration is lame something, not so associative, slight speech and word disturbance, feel limited in my Verbalität). In white and bright rooms it gets dizzy and dizzy, I feel like standing next to me. My tolerance level has also dropped since taking it and I would almost describe myself as slightly aggressive, although by nature I’m more forgiving. In my first few weeks, I felt drugged, unable to attend or follow any serious conversations. My anxiety is now severely curtailed, where the fear was before is now a kind of restless calm – what actually contradicts, feel a bit hollow and stony, my emotions are not the same as before. I also have adventurous dreams, I’m talking in my sleep lately. Now to the positive effects: My sleep has improved, I can sleep through again, am also accordingly fit during the day. I do not ponder before going to bed, but can relax, my fear has severely limited. My pain is completely RESILIENT- which I had never dreamed of having 21 before. I think the latter alone is enough to hold on to Lyrica. I appreciate every painless day now. My drive has come back again.

    I got stiffer bowel movements and thus hemorrhoids. In addition, I was less excitable and had orgasm problems.

    Side effects: Constipation
