    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 Anxiety and panic attacks

    Take the drug for about 1.5 years against anxiety and panic, in the morning 1x. Meanwhile, there are more and more side effects, which I find nciht more great. Numbness in the thigh, drowsiness, memory lapses. In addition, I have learned that the Medi, contrary to the information of my doctor, but make dependent. I will sneak out of Lyrica and maybe try different medication. Maybe it works without it, because I have done a Thearpie meanwhile. Trial is worth it.

    Lyrica for Arthrosis; Disc prolapse; Neuralgia

    Hello, I take now for the second time Lyrica because of the strongest nerve pain in chron. progressive lumbar spine syndrome, osteochondrosis, spondylolisthesis, sliding vertebrae, arthrosis in the range L4-S1. What bothers me the most is that I do not want to increase the dose and the 150 mg a day does not help me anymore. I torture myself from one day to the other, am fully employed by the way, have a lot of stress at work and could cry from 11 o’clock already, such torments I stand by every day. In addition, what torments me especially, not only the pain, no, during sex once a week I am now also totally unhappy, because I experience almost no orgasm anymore. It is so that stroking, etc. makes me very relaxed and makes me feel like it, but when it comes time, I just can not get to the climax and I am sadly sad about that. If only the Lyrica would dampen my pain, but that would not. What should I do? Actually, I would have to stiffen the vertebra L5 / S1, but before that I’m still backwards, since I’m only 54 years old and I’m just afraid that the pain afterwards is not better and I still need to Tabl. Nehemn.

    Side effects: Ineffectiveness; Libido loss

    Lyrica for Rls

    I take this drug in combination with Nacom against Restless Legs Syndrome (restless legs) which is considered to be difficult to treat. Regarding the weight gain, I have speech disorder, word-finding difficulties, forgetfulness, very aggressive respond to trifles / persons, eye flares or see blurry , insecure gait as if completely drunk. 2 hours after taking the restlessness begins-counterproductive, since I take her for the night.Libido equal to zero, no desire for closeness-feeling like extinguished. Positive: I have rest in my legs and thus quality of life again – at a very high price. Would like to discontinue this drug, because I have to deal with the fatal side effects with completely different challenges. Regrettably, the neurologist does not take this condition seriously and referred to psychological adjunct therapy with the Conclusion drug, which is compatible with Lyrica and Nacom, increased aggressiveness, and sometimes triggered seizures in stressful situations. Will report on the withdrawal 🙂

    Lyrica for Intervertebral discs-op; Neuralgia; Pain (chronic)

    M-beta belongs to the group morphine. Before being exposed to morphine, I had a number of other analgesics without any success. My blood levels were so miserable that no doctor knew what to do. Since I get along with morphine, my blood levels are also very good, so sometimes something positive. Unfortunately, other side effects such as: constipation, at first circulatory problems, loss of appetite …) are not enough, but I am clear today. Lyrica, I have against constantly, strong nerve tearing (100mg in the morning and 150mg in the evening). Now my constipation became a real problem for me. Circulatory / balance, vision problems and nausea were present. Memory disorders, decreasing attention, irritability, increased appetite (10kg in 10 months increased), loss of taste, dry mouth, abdominal distension, absolute listlessness and no desire for sex were also added. My liver value rose to 398 and should knowingly be no more than 40. Now we (doctor and I) wanted to let Lyrica run out within 3 days, which was far too fast. I got a heavy withdrawal. Very uncomfortable! Now we lower the dose within 14 days. I do not want to take Lyrica anymore because of the many side effects, which I have all received. I will then replace it with another medicine!

    Lyrica for Withdrawal symptoms; Anxiety disorders; Epilepsy; Sleep disorders; Depression

    Because of Benzodiazepim a horror withdrawal in an addiction clinic behind me. The drug TAVOR expidet was prescribed to me by my family doctor because of severe multivamous panic attacks, which came over me right after the radiation phase of my breast cancer. I was desperately looking for a solution to the dependence on Tavor for 2 years, and finally got the drug Lyrica with some other tablets as (relief) in the withdrawal clinic. I take 300 mg a day, 150 mg in the morning and 150 mg in the evening, plus 2 x 25 mg of Valdoxan, 50 mg of Eutyrox and 20 mg of Propra. At first I was very excited about Lyrica because it helped me a bit over the withdrawal (understated), which means pain and anxiety, etc. – now I take this tablet for 6 months and I’m pretty unhappy with it. During the first month my eating habits changed, I gained weight (from 80 kg to 97 kg in 5 months), followed by confusion, dizziness, panic attacks, walking difficulties and speech disorders. I thought it was the aftermath of the tablet withdrawal from Tavor. But that is not so, because in the second month, these side effects were worse, I had to dress myself completely new, as I increased again a dress size. In the third month, confusion and speech disorders, muscle aches and muscle weakness increased. I also needed a size more clothes, Fressattaken, most of the greed on sweets, degenerate into the boundless, and no one can tell me how to get this under control, unless I need exercise and vegetables and eat fruit. A thing of impossibility, with this mixture of my prescribed tablets. Due to this drastic overweight that sticks to me like a foreign body, I also got additional joint pain in my knee (I have always been a very sporty person but now ..) and I can barely go up and down the stairs. I already have an uncertain walk because of Lyrica. Now my sugar has gotten mixed up and water is leaving pretty often even though my drinking volume is extremely low. Since this should not be a letter of infinity, I have to abbreviate. my side effects from the Lyrica-Valdoxan-Eutyrox-Propra Compound are: Blisters in the face-Bone pain-Muscle weakness and muscle pain- Bone pain- Joint pain- Confusion phase- Disappearance- Food addiction- Nausea- Libido loss- Liver values Increased- Insecure aisle- Heel burning- Water retention- ( also in the legs) Diarrhea-Speech disorders-Wortfindungsstörungen- Stiffness in the body- flatulence – Schlappsein- Zuckerspiegel conspicuous- inner restlessness- I would really like to sell this tablet, but knows that this brings back withdrawal symptoms, so I’m still waiting for to my appointment with my neurologist, perhaps to find a solution. I wish all of you good luck and perseverance here in the Sanego forum. WE CREATE THAT AGAIN! My question: Has anyone skipped Lyrica? what is happening ? Need info about stopping Lyrica and Valdoxan because I’m terrified of that time.

    Lyrica for Depression

    Be 1.5 years severe depressive episode with panic attacks and generalized anxiety disorder. Panic Attacks: Venlaflaxin very good effect. Lyrica only minor effect. Other drugs have no effect. Generalized anxiety disorder: Lyrica very good effect, venlaflaxin moderate to good effect. Lamotrigine moderate effect. Depression: Therapy resistance to antidepressants of the SSRI and SSRNI class (venlaflaxin, sertraline, citalopram). Therapy to lithium. Wellbutrin low to moderate effect. Lamotrigine very good effect. Nicotine addiction (unplanned treatment): Wellbutrin very good effect. Side effects Venlaflaxin in the first four weeks: anxiety, dizziness, severe agitation, loss of libido, headache, sleep disorders. Venlaflaxin after the first four weeks: complete loss of libido. Lyrica: weight gain, initially tiredness. Wellbutrin: Sleep disorders, headache (both only at the beginning). Dry mouth. Lithium: Severe tremor, acne, weight gain, dry mouth, thirst. Lamotrigine: no side effects. After more than a year of drug treatment and unsuccessful treatments, I was prescribed the drug lamotrigine. This works very well, without side effects. Since I also have ADHD, it has modified my depression. The result was, as with many ADHD and depression patients, an extensive therapy license. According to my specialist in ADHD and mood disorders (depression, anxiety), the drugs Wellbutrin and Lamotrigine are in most cases very effective while classic antidepressants fail. After more than 1.5 years of immeasurable torment and suffering, I am finally on the road to recovery. Even if one does not believe it, it passes. PS: Was briefly treated with Seroquel (fatigue, appetite increase, weight gain) and Ritalin (agitation)

    Lyrica for A headache; Pain (chronic)

    At first I had good results with Novalgin, then quite good results with Tramadol (Tramadolor), but the side effects: fatigue, nausea, total loss of appetite, gagging, vomiting, drying of the skin, total constipation. Since Tramadol no longer worked properly, I was prescribed Lyrica. First 150mg / day, then the double dose. The pain attenuation is good. Side effects, however, are tiredness, constipation, drowsiness, dizziness, metallic taste on the tongue, loss of libido, double vision, listlessness, flatulence, increased appetite and thus unwanted weight gain, concentration problems. The dose was further increased because within a short time the pain was back. By now I was at 450mg / day. The side effects partially sneaked out. The damping of the pain was very good. As side effects were striking: fatigue, but also sleep disorders (3 hours awake in bed at night), drowsiness (I sometimes feel like I had drunk beer), dizziness, double vision, lack of desire and listlessness, loss of appetite, appetite increase and thus weight gain (me have increased over 10kg), concentration disorders. After over 4 months of taking the drug discontinued – which cost gigantic overcoming and will – and after more than a year of abstinence from Lyrica are still some side effect is not completely gone.
