    Lyrica for Dizziness; Trigeminal neuralgia; Pain (chronic)

    Am 20 years, male and suffering from a strong infection 8 months ago from infernal facial pain, dizziness, weakness, tingling in the whole head and face and many other complaints. Also for 4 years in an unknown severe rheumatic disease. I take Lyrica 2 x 150mg a day for 3 months and so far I have not noticed any side effects but also felt no positive effect. Time wasted for me. For me, not a single painkiller and nothing else works. Have tried over 35 painkillers, nothing works for me … not even for the rheumatic complaints. I feel like I am immune to painkillers. Also after an almond and appendectomy surgery, no painkillers worked.

    Side effects: No side effects

    Lyrica for Trigeminal neuralgia

    I have had TN since 2006 and have had surgery in 2009. Could until today, however, the Lyrica never settle completely. The lowest dose was REHA 75 mg daily. At the moment I am back at 225 mg in the morning, 60 mg Cymbalta in the morning and 225 mg Lyrica in the evening (Violent attacks in summer 2013). Side effects – good question – I think that after all these years I got so used to the stuff that I do not remember how a life without side effects is.

    Lyrica for Trigeminal neuralgia

    About three weeks after oral intake I had a very strong headache with the known side effects, my neuralgia could not be improved in the least by Lyrica, I even had seizures (muscle spasm), after stopping the medication headaches are gone, since then never again Seizures had, doctor confirmed clearly increased headache, seizures may occur, drug is dangerous because of its side effects and can bring risks, ingestion should be well considered, especially since the drug is actually supposed to be against headache, here is more likely to worsen

    Side effects: Muscle cramps; Headache

    Lyrica for Trigeminal neuralgia

    I had facial pain since last year and was pushed from one doctor to another. From the neurologist I got only clomipramine, which helped me not at pain. From the pain doctor I got Lyrica and antidepressants, which made me only tired and depressed, but at first at least against the attaken half.the dentist could not find any inflammation, so that I wrote a remedy together with my family doctor, which helped but was simply burdened with too many side effects. i got carbamazepine (but too low), dolomin extra for the toothache, clomipram for the frustration and lyrica in addition. but it helped !! in vogtareuth in surgical neurology I was then properly checked by the end of may2011 and you found trygeminusneuralgie and I got carbamazepine-only higher doses. since then the aching patches are gone, but the side effect with me is: fatigue, hunger in the short time 7kilo increased , and photosensitivity.that with the increase makes me very, ….

    Lyrica for Trigeminal neuralgia

    Very good result at the beginning of treatment. The pain and burning and itching on the face improved. I could sleep better and was even more relaxed. Now after three months, but I have major concentration disorders and word finding disorders. In addition, leg pain plagues me. I have increased and have problems with urination. Very unsure if I should continue taking the drug.

    Lyrica for Trigeminal neuralgia

    I have been taking the drug for 10 days (2 x 150 mg) and I hope the side effects will continue to decrease … Before I took carbamazepine, 2 x 600 mg, but after a few weeks the effect began to subside, to zero, and I almost went to the ceiling in pain again! Side effects include: drowsiness, lack of coordination, diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea- but so far fewer overall side effects than carbamazepine.

    Side effects: Diarrhea; Nausea; Dizziness

    Lyrica for Trigeminal neuralgia

    When I took Lyrica for the first time, I was turned over after about half an hour (so cold sweaty, etc., but I did not completely lose consciousness). At first I thought maybe that was a bit much today and I reacted that way. Because I was the day before in two days five times with the dentist, because I thought that I have animal toothache. It started first in the lower jaw, then in the upper jaw, but after X-rays and everything down to the smallest corner was searched for tooth decay, I was then stunned in each tooth to see which tooth caused the pain. But as the anesthetic only made things worse and I was only crying in pain, I was then sent to the neurologist as an emergency. He then found that I have trigeminal neuralgia and prescribed Tilidine and Lyrica 75mg. Since I have ever taken Tilidin after an operation, I knew that I can tolerate this drug. The second day I had to take Lyrica, then all the incompatibilities began. Itching, double vision, the body trembled tremendously when walking, could not speak properly, my left side from the face swollen animal, lack of concentration and I slept a lot. Of course I drove to the hospital because I first had to deal with such a strange doctor, who had no idea, because he is actually a gynecologist. He definitely gave me an infusion of cortisone and an injection for the itch and was then referred to the neurologist from the hospital. The neurologist wrote me Tegretal 400 ret and since then I’m better off, I have only tingling in my nose and upper lip, but still better than the severe pain and side effects of the Lyrica. So I’m just 23 years old and the neurologist told me that Lyrica is just what older patients are. At the earliest from 40 years
