    Lyrica for Cross section paralysis; Neuropathy

    Because of unspeakable chronic neuropathic pain, I’ve already tried several pain medications. Currently I take Lyrica 150mg and Targin 20mg. There is still no complete freedom from pain, but the state of pain is no longer superficial in the consciousness. However, the side effects are significant. Although I am completely restrained with the food, I continuously take what I do not like, because my paraplegia, I have to pay very much attention to my weight; After all, you have to balance your whole weight with your arms, or the nursing service. In addition, I do not have the opportunity to do sports, which can contribute significantly to weight loss. Furthermore, I’m just tired and dazed, can hardly follow a conversation, because I lack the concentration. My left eye also suffers from the medication. I mostly see blurry and I feel like I’m getting small pinpricks in it. The permanent dry mouth and the itchy rash on the face should be mentioned. Actually, Lyrica should be increased even further, but that does not work with the many side effects, because apparently my body does not get used to the remedy. Let’s see what the doctors come up with next.

    Lyrica for Neuropathy

    After adjuvant chemo with cisplatin and vinorelbine, I had polyneuropathy and was prescribed for the symptoms of my oncologist Lyrica, 75mg in the morning and in the evening. The side effects have now become unbearable for me after eight weeks. Dry mouth, water retention and frequent sadness, swelling of the lips, blurred vision, steady weight gain and heavy sweating made my life hell. It’s a lot easier for me to endure my polyneuropathy, especially as it slowly improves … not through Lyrica. Susanne

    Lyrica for Neuropathy

    After nephropexy (kidney delivery in July 07 with moderate renal insufficiency) I have pain in the operating room and environment. None of the doctors knew how to handle it. There was still pain in the pelvic area. By a laparoscopy a Blutversprekelung in the pelvic area was diagnosed and removed. The pain in the ribs and pelvic area remained. I first got tramadol for the pain. After an intolerance to Tramal turned out (perpetual dizziness, nausea, no pain reduction) I got on request and begging Targin 10 / 5mg (was administered to me after the kidney op with significant pain reduction). My then urologist did not want to prescribe these for me and sent me back to the hospital. They took nothing away from it and suggested a pain therapy. I went to another urologist. He immediately wrote me Targin and a referral for pain therapy. There they were diagnosed with a neuropathic pain condition caused by surgery. I was ordered LYRICA together with Targin. The targin should be discontinued slowly (tried to live without targin for two days … Had pain in the rib area, where the kidney was stapled !!!). Then I have Targin again combined with Lyrica. Since taking Lyrica I have gained 3kg within 30 days (with reduced food intake) … In addition dizziness, fatigue, drowsiness, depression and water in my hands, face and legs !!! The accumulation of water can not be reduced by normal water tablets (health food). There is a feeling of pressure in the surgical area, which I still have to clarify. Despite the many side effects, the burning pain has calmed down … However, I have too many side effects … I will therefore ask my pain therapist to change me to another drug … For information: I take 300mg Lyrica a day. 450mg Lyrica I can not do … Then I can not get out of bed!
