    Lyrica for Amputation; Pain (neuropathic)

    I took 75 mg Lyrica daily for about 1 year. The drowsiness and drowsiness has swollen quite quickly at the beginning, basically it did not matter, because I had a flu virus at the beginning of the intake anyway and was sick in bed. After about 1-2 weeks I was able to drive again without restriction, go to work and do sports. The depth of sleep was more and better in the year. I have only gained about 2 pounds. Concerning pain, Lyrica did not help at all with violent attacks during this dorsing. However, it helped very well with the neuropathic misperceptions. But since the violent attacks of pain occur only when something else in the body is in trouble (infections or the like, because that’s just a few inflammations are too much) and that does not happen daily, I decided to stop Lyricas. If you only have pain every few weeks, Lyrica is actually nonsense.

    Lyrica for Arthritis; Migraine; Arthrosis; Neuralgia; Pain (chronic)

    With the medication, my pain is so far under control that I can do my housework and participate in the social life limited. The side effects are with me, severe fatigue, dizziness, frequent circulation problems, severe sweating. If I do not take oxycodone punctually, the first withdrawal symptoms appear relatively quickly, I notice that at first, because my nose is suddenly closed, and I get a strong inner restlessness. And what is especially annoying is the chronic constipation, without Movicol nothing works.

    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 Bone fracture

    After a severe accident involving a nerve plexus I had such severe neuropathic pain that I wanted to jump out of the window (if I could!). Acutely I was treated with fentanyl, long term with lyrica. First 600 mg, 450 mg for three weeks. Of course you have to expect side effects, but the salvation of these inhuman pain is worth it to me. So I can deal with weight gain, edema, fatigue, etc. – knowing that everything is just a temporary condition.

    Side effects: Edema; Increase in weight; Fatigue

    Lyrica for Bone fracture; Morbus sudeck

    I take Hydal, Lyrica, Cal-D-Vita and Pronerv for elbow eruptions with subsequent Sudek’s disease for about 10 months. A few months ago, I still got knee problems. I had and do not have any side effects, except that in the evening I am very tired and tired and sometimes fall asleep at lightning speed. But this could also be due to the stressful life with my disabilities. About 2 months ago I tried to sell Lyrica. Unfortunately, this did not work, because after weaning, my overall condition deteriorated again and my pain intensified extremely. After another, additional intake of Lyrica, the pain disappeared almost completely and my overall condition improved significantly. Side effect of the drugs = actually no except in the evening (!) Great fatigue side effect of my elbow eruption with Sudek’s disease = permanent damage

    Side effects: Fatigue

    Lyrica for Stomach protection; Cervical thoracic lumbar spine syndrome

    Since 3 months I take now Lyrica, initially 75 mg 1-0-1 which was increased to 150mg 1-0-1 within 9 days. The effectiveness against the pain is good, but I’m not completely pain free. The level is tolerable Since taking it I have gained 14 kilos. Although I do not eat more than usual, I gain weight. In addition, my body stores a lot of water, I have blackouts and can concentrate only a short time on a conversation. According to the leaflet, the body should get used to the effect, which my body does not. I am still overcome by sudden, unproven fatigue, and must lie down to sleep. There is no way around it. Without my stomach care drug omeprazole 20mg I would not be able to take Lyrica, without stomach cramps.

    Lyrica for Post-traumatic stress disorder; Depression

    Initially treatment with Lyrica 25 mg, in the evening: fatigue, gait insecurity, blurred vision, dizziness, eyelid flutter. As soon as the unwanted side effects subsided, I increased by 25 mg in each case, then it usually occurred again the known undesirable side effects, but for a much shorter period. Most of the time my body got used to the dose increase after less than a week. After the gradual increase in the dose I am now for about 2 1/2 months to 50 mg in the evening and 25 mg in the morning and come with it without side effects. I tolerate the drug otherwise very well. During the first month Tavor was taken in parallel, which somewhat increased both the fatigue and the fluttering of the lower eyelid for about 2 weeks. After discontinuing Tavor, I can no longer detect any unwanted side effects of Lyrica.

    Lyrica for Stroke

    After reading many other reviews I can agree to 90% of all letters! Sleeplessness despite fatigue, weight gain, water in the legs, inner restlessness, tremors in the limbs, mild speech disorders, no improvement of the disease! That should be enough to sell the preparation !!!

    Lyrica for Stroke

    Thanks to a stroke in early 2004 with severe right side nerves, I take 300mg in the morning and in the evening. At the beginning, strong sleep need otherwise no negative concomitants. The pill is easy to swallow and does not seem to attack the stomach (1986 stomach breakthrough). The effectiveness I can only judge with well. In bad weather, the pain is sometimes extreme. But to put it immediately, without this drug I would have significant problems living my life.

    Side effects: Fatigue

    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.

    I can not recommend Lyrica. It was prescribed to me because of my degenerative spinal pain, lumbar spine, ISG and celiac joint arthrosis. 75-0-75-0 It should be increased to 150-0150-0.

I could not see clearly anymore. Everything was blurry. I got an unbearable printhead pain. I could not walk anymore because of the dizziness. I felt I had a blanket in my mouth, it was so dry. I stopped the medication. I can not recommend this medicine

    Lyrica for Borderline; Social phobia; Nerve damage; Depression

    I used to take Doxepin 100mg in the evening, so I was finally able to sleep again, but was tired and impotent the next day. Although I gained three kilos, which was quite desirable because I also suffered from an eating disorder, the depression could only be moderated a little. But there was no more suicide attempt. Dry mouth. Since I additionally take pregabalin (because of an accident, from it the damage of the nerves on the foot), the side effects are intensified. After taking drunkenness and strong fatigue, as well as ings. 12 kilos of weight gain. Dry mouth, but word finding problems have only been recorded since taking Pregabalin.

    Lyrica for Spinal canal; Disc prolapse

    Due to two BSV I have severe pain in the arm and neck and very unpleasant shock-like shock sensations in the arm, shoulder and neck. Initially, I was prescribed Valoron (drops), Celebrex and Tetrazepam. Only then could I move normally, the pain was practically gone. After my liver values of the many drugs had increased greatly, was switched to Lyrica. I now take 75mg in the morning / noon and 150mg in the evening. About two hours after taking it, I became so tired the first few days that I fell asleep sitting down despite heavy coffee. Over time, fatigue has become less, but not completely gone. The pain and especially the electric shock in the arm have become much better or little more since I take the Lyrica, it can really shut off the pain but not. Somehow you do not feel the pain so bad on Lyrica even though he is still there. Unfortunately I have gained almost 10 kilos since I take it. Must force me to just a bit more sporting activity, which is quite difficult for me by the constant exhaustion.

    Side effects: Increase in weight; Fatigue
