    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.

    Approximately 10 days of treatment with Lyrica (pregabalin) for Restless Legs Syndrome in a drug addict (dry alcoholic). Conclusion: The dose had to be increased from one pill (25mg) a day to 10 pills in the morning and 10 pills in the evening for the first effect to be heard. Advantages: no increased salivation between 14:00 o’clock and 19:00 o’clock none, as usual cold shakes with chills. Pills are so small that can easily be swallowed five at a time, after taking 10 pieces (25mg) in the morning and 10 pieces in the evening first improvement: no painful discomfort (burning, itching, tingling) in the hands, barely during the day painful sensations in the feet, only at night painful sensations in the feet. Sleep phases increased from about 45 minutes (without pregabalin) to about 90 to 120 minutes. Back and neck neck pain (LWS / HWS) hardly noticeable. Numbness in the right thigh disappeared. Disadvantages: dry mouth and heavy pressure strong dizziness sweating drive weakness hallucinations (even three days after discontinuing the pills) Middle depression confusion total loss of sense of time increased hand shaking I advise a person who still halfway clear in the head, I guess from my experience, completely by off these pills.

    Lyrica for Borderline

    I’m just trying to stop the medication because I’m afraid of gaining more … Otherwise, it helps to regulate my mood swings. When I get rage, I’m back soon. The tunnel view is gone very quickly. Unfortunately, side effects are very unpleasant.

    Lyrica for A headache; Depression

    Since I am suffering from depression for years after an SHT, I finally found the right one with this medication combo. Admittedly, the pain to help Lyrica is still sporadic, the mood swings and lows I’ve experienced are still not completely gone. But on the whole, I feel better now that I’ve had the accident. At first I had severe symptoms such as: sweating, dry mouth, difficult water. But now these side effects are almost completely gone. The biggest problem, however, is still with Edronax. As soon as I do not take it at the prescribed time, I am aggressive, irritable and quickly annoyed. Why that’s so, I do not know!?

    Lyrica for Neuropathy

    After adjuvant chemo with cisplatin and vinorelbine, I had polyneuropathy and was prescribed for the symptoms of my oncologist Lyrica, 75mg in the morning and in the evening. The side effects have now become unbearable for me after eight weeks. Dry mouth, water retention and frequent sadness, swelling of the lips, blurred vision, steady weight gain and heavy sweating made my life hell. It’s a lot easier for me to endure my polyneuropathy, especially as it slowly improves … not through Lyrica. Susanne

    Lyrica for Spastik; Pain (chronic)

    Due to the spastic tetraplegia, my musculature cramps more than a healthy muscle in pain. Therefore, at the onset of chronic pain syndrome, I was prescribed Katadolone directly. As a side effect I felt at the beginning almost only the tiredness. In the meantime, the following side effects have come along: muscle tremors, dry mouth, constipation, some sleep disturbances, restlessness (physical type). For two months I still take Tilidine Retard (50/4) 3 times a day and as a combination Tilidin solution (as needed 2 – 4 x daily 20 drops). Again, fatigue plays a role as a side effect. In addition, I get Lyrica 25 mg in the evening for a few days. These should take the share of neuropathic pain. Here are also the side effects of fatigue, tremors and dry mouth. Inwiewiet the Lyrica is increased is still unclear. But it is sure that it will stay with me a low dose.

    Lyrica for Spastik; Pain (chronic)

    When taking the 3 drugs listed above, there were frightening side effects. After initially decaying pain symptoms came after about 4 weeks to extreme dry mouth, speech difficulties, constipation, depression to suicidal thoughts. The patient was no longer himself and here are also unprecedented cardiac arrhythmias search, which could be eliminated only by a hospital stay. After urgent, immediate discontinuation of Lyrica, the condition of the patient improves daily, although withdrawal symptoms (nausea and heat waves with heavy sweats) occurred.

    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!

    I have taken pregabalin for 4 1/2 years for generalized anxiety disorders, from 375mg / d up to 600mg / d in the last 2 months. In the first 3 years, the effect (with an addition of 450mg / d) was quite good, I described it in another article with a potential of about 80% compared to benzodiazepines. So, in short: against the famous dawn, brooding compulsion and a Überervervosity it helped for a long time. To note – this is already clear from the sentences above – but is also a gradual loss of effect. The most annoying side effect is the immense weight gain, 25 kilograms in 4 years. The without appetite increase, food just started more. In addition to that (I can say today in retrospect), there was also dry mouth and eye. After dosing to 600mg, the dryness of the eye was so extreme that contact lenses (which I have to wear because of severe hyperhidrosis because goggles are constantly dripping wet) became impossible. In the morning I had to dilate my eyes with my fingers, and a strong conjunctivitis has finally denied me the Lyrica in this dosage. When dosing down to 300mg it came to a strong flare of fear – for me Lyrica was no longer sufficiently effective in this dosage. So I highly recommend it (and do not be fooled into believing dosages of 25mg would help fight anxiety – read the dosage recommendations!), But it’s not a solution for many years, just because of habituation, I think. Subject withdrawal: Yes, you notice it, if only because the desired effect is missing – and anxiety is unpleasant. From where then trembling, dizziness and fatigue come, is an open question. I am now taking a benzodiazepine, which certainly makes it easier to get used to it than would be a pure withdrawal. Andersow, I read, one should creep out in halving steps – I would not do at high doses, because 600 to 300 was clearly too much. I could imagine 75mg less well each week. Get well soon!

    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)
