    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.

    My experiences with Lyrica I am 44 years old, male. Software developers. Overall, I took Lyrica for over 18 months. After a coccyx tear and subsequent partial resection, the pain persisted and even became worse in the scar area. The pain therapist prescribed Lyrica first with 2x50mg, then 2x75mg and later 2x150mg. Decisive for Lyrica was the assumption of unfavorably fused nerve endings after the operation. Lyrica is also said to help with surgical pain. At 2x50mg the side effects were moderate. At the time I made other circumstances responsible for the new sleep disturbances. The pain remained unchanged. With 2x75mg, the following side effects occurred: The cognitive performance was reduced. – Lack of concentration – Memory weakness (I could not remember the simplest things) – Weight gain 10 Kg in 6 months – Increased fatigue – Increased (!) Libido – Generally can not see well – Restless legs With 2x150mg – The pain got worse (!) Instead better. My whole buttocks hurt me all the time. Lately also in walking and standing. Sitting in the office for more than 6 hours was not possible. Car rides were tolerable for a maximum of 30 minutes. – slowed reactions – heavy double-vision already read after 10-30 minutes, screen work or television – photosensitivity. Violent starbucks. Night driving was only possible with sunglasses. – Additional weight gain of 10 kg in 6 months – Water retention in the legs. Support stockings were now required. – extreme tiredness! (I fell asleep multiple times in the office during work, which could have cost me my job if anyone had noticed!) – Severe memory problems (What’s the name of the item? Oh, that’s a spoonful). As a programmer, an unspeakable condition, though you can not remember how something works. My head is my capital. And if it does not work properly, I will be unemployed. – If I ever forget a dose, I got withdrawal symptoms. Muscle, limb and headache. These very serious side effects and the obvious lack of effect have led me to sneak away Lyrica. At the moment I am at 2x25mg and in three days at 1x25mg. A few side effects are partially gone (fatigue, restless legs) or at least reduced (sleep disorder, memory, increased libido). The rest is still unchanged. As a result of the sloughing, the following side effects have now been added, but they are supposed to disappear in the end. – Acne – Itching I do not want to advise against Lyrica, because there are probably good useful results. For me, however, the side effects were a hundred times worse than the expected positive effect. Interaction with other means is more likely to be ruled out. Except Lyrica, I took only occasionally Nexium 20mg because of stomach hyperacidity. Otherwise nothing else. Before I got Lyrica, I was prescribed tilidine drops, which only helped marginally. Now, with only 2x25mg Lyrica, after one year I finally feel awake again. I hope that really all side effects and very special the double images disappear again.

    Lyrica for Fibromyalgia; Pain (acute)

    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.

    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 Social phobia; Depression

    I’ve been taking paroxetine, wellbutrin (both antidepressants) for years, seroquel and lamotrigine for depression and anxiety, I’ve got the depressions under control, but now Lyrica is prescribed for the anxiety. I take it only 3 days and the full effect occurs (as with almost all psychotropic drugs) after 2-4 weeks, but I notice on the third day of taking a light effect – restlessness and tremors significantly improved, anxiety slightly subdued. The side effects are dizziness, tiredness and mild nausea. In addition, I feel a bit like drugged or slightly drunk, I stand a little next to me. That’s why you should stay at home the first few days if you take Lyrica or driving at all, etc.! But I had that with all medications in the first week of treatment. The side effects usually go by relatively quickly. ————————————————– ————————————————– ——- After 6 days, I notice that I am much calmer, my mood is indeed muted (I now take 150mg per day) but I am much less nervous and restless with strangers around and do not think so much about it after, how I act on others. I have difficulty concentrating. I hope they will pass soon. Otherwise hardly any side effects! 🙂

    Lyrica for Anxiety disorders

    Have a Benzodiazepinentzug after about 15 years of taking Xanor and Lexotanil behind me. In the withdrawal clinic, Lyrica was prescribed 375 mg daily after the physical withdrawal. Even in the clinic I had strong side effects such as staggering gait, dizziness, difficulty concentrating, memory blocks, fatigue, loss of taste and overall a zombie feeling. Despite repeated response of the responsible physician regarding the various sensations, Lyrica was not discontinued or another drug tried, but the dose increased. He just wanted to know if I still had panic attacks and because they had decreased, it remained despite the side effects at Lychar. Through the flower I was told that he already knew what he prescribed me. Since I was in his opinion not yet dismissive, I had to swallow the pills every day in front of the nurses probably. That was clearly disenfranchisement! After consultation with other patients, almost all Lyrica got in more or less dosage – regardless of whether it was alcoholic, tablet-dependent or depressive. My impression was that this drug was used like aspirin (probably had a lucrative contract with the pharmaceutical company …). After my release, I immediately tried to sneak Lyrica out. Because of that, it does not make it dependent. The greatest weaning symptoms of excessive sweating, rapid heartbeat, constant agitation, aggression to nervous ticking. Could not go down further than up to 225 mg daily. Now, with the help of my doctor, try to find a suitable alternative medication for generalized anxiety disorders. Conclusion: with a drug in the withdrawal clinic in and out with another out. Since I could have stayed the same with my Benzo’s, which have caused as a side effect, although strong fatigue, but the effect was really helpful and have brought me much more quality of life. Lyrica for me clearly much worse than Xanor @ Co !!!
