    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 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 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 Water storages

    The use of Lyrica 300 mg / day has helped a lot in terms of pain (leg pain, back problems). I stopped the medication because of the enormous weight gain of 14 kg (from 70 to 84. After I discontinued the medication, I have already lost 10 kg, but I’m tired again.) At the moment I’m in despair, because I just can not (without having to change my diet) with this weight gain as an obvious side effect, because, among other things, the weight is not good for the spine and joints.

    Side effects: Increase in weight

    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 Cross section paralysis

    Experience: For some years now I have taken Palladon 8 mg and Lyrika (morning 75 mg, evening 300 mg) in combination 1-0-1. The pain treatment in this combination is very good, after the conversion (increasing the dose of palladone from 4 mg to 8 mg) I had in the last 4 weeks only once more severe pain, which I attributed to a change in the weather. Side effects: First, enormous weight gain, almost scary! Before or even after my accident 8 years ago I weighed 67 kg, today it is 89 kg. Constant feeling of being at home although one is full, from earlier times I do not know this at all. But, even if the weight gain on the one hand bothers you, but you have to weigh what you prefer – the weight gain or this unspeakably strong pain – consisting of constant sharp pain, as if someone stabbed with a knife in the leg-the blade very slowly turn and pull it out again … and of course it keeps turning. For my person, even if it is still so bitter I must confess, then rather the weight gain. I will now try to hold back with the food and somehow to do a kind of sport, which I do not know so well (a treadmill would be very good, but that is far too expensive and I can not afford leiedr).

    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 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 Intervertebral discs-op; Arthrosis; Pain (acute); Depression; Pain (chronic)

    I am taking the indicated medications now for a good 2 years at this dosage: Morphine 100 1-1-1-0 Lyrica 300 1-0-1-0 Mirtazapine neuraxpharm 30mg 0-0-1-0 Syneudon 50mg 0-0-1- 0 b.After 3×20 Trf. Novaminsulfone So far, it gets me quite well, only it’s just not enough for my Schmerzsymtomatik. Before that, I had tested other medicines and had been prescribing for a while until my last KKH, where I went with this og. Dosage has been discharged. The combination morphine & amp; Lyrica has actually taken me quite a few steps forward, only it is temporarily insufficient. Will this on occasion again discuss with my doctor, what we can do there ??! ?? At side effects I have massive sweats, no matter how cold or warm it is. I do not have constipation for the most part, so I only use the laxative as needed. Otherwise, only bothers me the strong weight gain, although I do not know exactly whether it comes from the antidepressants or the pain medication ??? That bothers me so much, because I can not do great sports (only if I have a good day, then I can probably go swimming, but only if it is just a warm bathing day) and every kilo Too much to do in various places. I hope again and again that the doctors can either eliminate my symptoms, or such an effective drug comes on the market, which has little or better, no side effects! But this will probably remain my eternal dream Wish all readers a possible pain-free life

    Side effects: Sweats; Increase in weight

    Lyrica for Pain (back)

    My mother takes the pills for back pain. She says even you do not take the pain from her, but they do. She laughs hysterically when she takes the pills and about 10 hours later she becomes aggressive and would love to hit everything. She has a lot of energy at the moment and eventually falls into a deep feeling and thinks everyone is against Die and it would not bother anyone if she dies. She is already very narcissistic by character anyway. I think that is reinforced by the tablets. We as a family suffer a lot from this, as the family doctor prescribes the drug despite the behavior of her without any noticeable positive effect. It also becomes palpable if you take the drug. For me, the drug is prohibited.

    Side effects: Increase in weight

    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

    Lyrica for Morbus sudeck

    The beginning of the treatment was hell – was set for 14 days in the clinic. I felt like in Delierium. Initially severe nausea and vomiting and dizziness. Nevertheless, I took in the 14 days 6 kilos to which I can not get down to today (cruel)! After about 2 months we went better. Since then, severe sweats and non-stop hunger have plagued me. Weight can be kept tedious. I have no problems with constipation – but I take Laxofalk regularly since the first day. My children find me too tired and slow thinking. In addition, I would forget many things immediately what I’ve ever told.

    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 Pain (chronic)

    I’ve been taking Lyrica for two years now, at least 400mg a day, but it was already 600mg. In the time it came and comes again and again to different side effects of different characteristics. Especially fatigue (sleep easily 20 hours), depression, mood swings, word finding problems, confusion. In addition, I have 4 kilograms increased, have problems wearing contact lenses and more recently also problems with the abdomen (distended belly, nausea). My pain is almost gone.

    Good efficacy against diffuse feelings of anxiety (about 80% of the effect of benzodiazepines at therapeutic doses), weaning (several weeks snarling) brought significant increase in anxiety, which I evaluate on the one hand positive as proof of effectiveness, on the other hand, disturbing with regard to future, possibly necessary Drop. I do not feel it so that a mirror forms, but with delayed intake comes again to worry, which lays about 1-2h after taking the single dose. Currently I have joint pain, which occurred about 3-4 months after the first dose. I am currently researching (07/2013) whether this may be due to Lyrica – if so, then partially damaged joints, which were asymptomatic outside the Lyrica intake, now distinct and restrictive. This refers to both knee joints (damaged menisci), elbows and the spine. Also, shortly after taking nocturnal pain in both hands as well as numbness. Again, I suspect that the measurable impairment of the nerves medianus and ulnaris makes under Lyrica noticeable by increased pain symptoms. But all these assumptions about pain are so far subjective and my speculation. I’m looking forward to much feedback !! 00
