    Lyrica for Shingles

    There were many side effects. Especially circulation problems. Before two days discontinued. Circulation has stabilized. But for flu-like symptoms. Without fever. And withdrawal problems.

    Lyrica for Shingles

    About 1.5 years ago I had a severe shingles on my face, as well as in the eye. Due to the almost unbearable pain was prescribed to the morphine Lyrica 150mg. Unfortunately, I had the misfortune, which has joined me after the shingles have subsided a so-called zoster neuralgia. So I took the Lyrica on. 2x150mg in the morning and 2x150mg in the evening. I was barely approachable, completely overdriven, had very large speaking needs (I chatted incessantly), could not drive a car, very severe headache and I have increased in this period of about a year around 35kg. In the meantime, we have changed the dosage to 2x150mg in the morning. I take these when I’m at work, because otherwise I would not be able to drive a car because I’m still very stunned after taking it. The bingeing has unfortunately not turned off. However, these are clearly attributable to the intake of Lyrica. We replaced Lyrica with Tillidine drops for about 2 months and the seizures had disappeared. The pain was back for that. Finally, it should be noted that the very strong side effects are almost out of proportion to the benefit. Unfortunately, there are currently no alternatives. I am male, 38 years old and now weigh almost 130kg. My everyday life is very difficult to cope with and I simply lack the drive. Thanks Lyrica !!!

    Lyrica for Shingles

    I’ve got Lyrica for the severe pain of shingles, and the effect has clearly set in, a great relief, but little pain, I can go back to sleep and feel somehow intoxicated. On the first day I started with 2 x 50mg and took a 75mg pill on the second day in the morning. Side effects are dizziness, fatigue, a feeling of being intoxicated, anxieties of old age that have bothered me have slipped into the background and the mood is generally good. I can well imagine that there are withdrawal symptoms when weaning, but if you know the pain of a shingles you take that into account. Maybe I complete the report with the part of the withdrawal and the withdrawal symptoms.

    Lyrica for Shingles

    After a strong herpes zoster in the face with Lyrica 150mg and Targin 5 / 10mg (and many other drugs) I have been particularly on these two drugs, since they make extremely dependent. I am currently trying to reduce by half of the amount previously taken (from 3x daily to only 1x daily). Side effects of the withdrawal I find very extreme. Strong stomach pain, cold sweat, strong shaking of the hands, muscle twitching, dejection, irritability, restless and the thoughts constantly revolve around the medication. But try to hold out, although I have at home even weaker dossierte tablets from my family doctor (almost as an emergency tablet).
