Mar 26, 2014

I've only been on lyrica for 6 days now. Im finding the 75mg dose to strong 1 a day is what i am taking.I was wondering if the capsule can be split in half so i take half of that per day .then was wondering how long does it take to wean off completely if i decide to come off completely off the lyrica. And is it safe to take half of the 75mg has i've noticed that dose is not listed on the patient sheet etc.

Pregabalin :: Lyrica 75mg Twice A Day - Zombie Effect

Started on the above 10 days ago. First capsule i took i was asleep not long after, woke up feeling in a daze, doctor advised me to have one a day for few days.

Dosulepin :: 75mg - Spaced Out

I've been on 75mg of dothiepin for 1 & a half weeks due to anxiety & mild depression. The intense anxiety (the sickness,feelings of going mad,inability to sleep,shaking) has gone with these tablets, but I'm feeling very spaced out and like I'm dreaming everything. Don't know whether it's the tablets or the anxiety causing it. I've seen a vast improvement in the last week, but I'm scared the tablets are making me feel like I've got someone else's brain & eyes in my head, very weird feeling! Anyone have the same feelings with it?

Venlafaxine 75mg And Propranolol 10mg Together?

Anybody take these medicines together? I was prescribed the Beta blockers today to help anxiety symptoms but don't see much difference! I have been taking the Venlafaxine 75mg now for three weeks alongside my Mirtazapine 30mg which I take at night! My depression has lifted a lot since starting the Venlafaxine it has took me out of the dark hole I was in! But now I'm feeling anxious and have headaches which feels like a lot of pressure in my head! I just feel so weird! And have butterflies in my stomach which kicks off the anxiety feeling in my chest! I'm going to see psychiatrist again tomorrow regarding this! I don't want to come off the Venlafaxine as it has helped my depression so much and has made me feel me again! I just want this anxiety and the weird feeling to go away! I'm wondering if an increase in dosage would help this and make the side effects disappear!

Sertraline :: Much Difference Between 75mg And 100mg?

I'm on my 9th week of sert (started on 25mg, then 50, now 75) and am just wondering whether to increase to 100mg or not. I'm finding it so hard to determine whether or not I'm better on them. I went to a concert at the weekend and my thoughts were all about anxiety, how I was feeling, etc thru the whole thing. It was a bday present for my husband so I forced myself to stay but eventually left with about 4 songs to go.

So I am kind of left thinking, how can any tablet stop me thinking about any particular subject ie. anxiety? I know it's about boosting serotonin but the overthinking can't be helped surely? I am going to counselling but that seems more focused on dealing with panic attacks, whereas in all honesty, I feel it was the sert that caused my first pa.

Sorry to go on, it's just that it was such a huge decision for me to even take sert in the first place and then an even harder call to stick with it thru all the side effects and now I'm feeling, "for what"? I'm so happy for those who say they feel amazing on it, truly I am, I just want that feeling too.

Pregabalin :: Successfully Stopping It

i have been on Pregablin for 6 years  now. I'm an amputee and suffer badly with phantom pains. I want to stop taking them but fear not only the phantom pains becoming unbearable but also how I may react on other levels. I take 600mg daily. My memory has been badly affected as well as my concentration levels and I feel constantly tired. Has anyone on here sucessfully come off pregablin? I feel that I am a spectator watching my life pass by and all my emotions are very flat. Hoping someone can help me out with an answer.

Sciatica :: Pregabalin And The Diazepam

I just want to get a feel of the pain differences... from, nah it's not so bad to how I am suffering .. where I cannot sit or stand, I am just laid flat, and have been for the last week. I'm on diazepam twice a day, pregabalin twice a day, Naproxen twice a day and paracetamol, And have just come off morphine.

I'll be upping my pregabalin in 3 days and the diazepam. .. I have never felt pain like it. My husband had to dress my bottom half, he has to help me in and out of the shower, and be around to make sure I don't slip..

I've been referred to the spine clinic who are ringing on 3rd Dec for a phone assessment. . They will then get me in for a scan.

I also have a bulging disc at L4... that didn't help either!

Fibromyalgia Syndrome :: Lyrica Makes Me Tired

I got to see my RA again this Friday , he decided that I am in pain because tramadol is not enough during the day. So he wants me to take Lyrica during the day. I have been and it might be helping 10 percent but makes me want sleep and makes it hard to think. I have even stuttered a few times. My husband is sick of it , I am suppose to be ready to intern this Wednesday ,everyday til December 12th . I barely can walk for a few minutes, before I do the 90 year old walk. My husband is taking me to a pain management clinic, to help me out of pain. I would love to be out of pain and normal, but lets face it I am not too excited on treating the pain and not the problem. I don't take medicine, until now and everything I try I have the low percent chance of the side effects. I DON'T want a pain clinic, but I want to be done with this misery.

Update from yesterday , I woke up and my rear felt as if I had fallen . It felt bruised , it's not. Then I noticed my underarms are sore too. My hubby says that I didn't fall. However, I have been found to up in the middle of the night cleaning, my husband putting me back to sleep. I don't recall any of it in the morning. What can I DO ?

Lyrica - Opiate Withdrawal Without Side Effects

If you are addicted to painkillers you can get off fluidly with no side effects by taking lyrica! I promise you, I don't give a damn what anyone tells you or what a dr tells you it works! I was taking 16 Norco 10 a day. Was scared of being out and suffered when I was out. I started by accident because I was out and haven't felt as good and focused. They last all day and I started with only 2 a day. I haven't been so happy in my life! Pain free also

Depression :: Venlafaxine 75mg - Withdrawl Symptoms?

I've been on Venlafaxine for the last few months now.  I've just moved to a new city and I can't find my prescription anywhere, and trying to find a new doctor is rather difficult with a limited income.  Can anyone tell me what adverse effects I will suffer without these?  It's been 2 days since my last pill and I've started throwing up this morning.  Is this from not being on them?

Trigeminal Neuralgia :: Gabapentin (Tegretol) And Lyrica Together

does anyone take both Tegretol and Lyrica together for TN?

My Neurologist does not want me to take more Tegretol because it does not go well with the Warfarin i have to take for my artificial heart valve. He has suggested that if i get pain breakthroughs consistently i can add Lyrica. GP seems sceptical but i am sure that's what he said to me.

I dont think Lyrica alone would be a good idea as it seems to have a lot of nasty side effects.

Multiple Sclerosis :: Trigeminal Neuralgia - Lyrica Works!

I suffer from Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) as part of MS. I must say it is the most painful condition that I have experienced. Worse than labor pain even, and frightening because you don't know how long it is going to last.

Well, I have finally found a solution to the problem! I recently started seeing a pain management specialist to discuss alternative treatment for treating MS-related pain. The doctor is extremely compassionate and easy to talk with about pain, and about MS in general. Anyway, he suggested that I start using Lyrica to treat the TN, and it has worked like a miracle!! I have had zero TN episodes in 8 months.

I'm sure many of you are familiar with Lyrica, which is very similar to Neurontin but much more effective. I no longer live in fear of a TN attack. Thank God!

If you or someone you know is suffering from TN, ask your doctor about Lyrica. You don't have to suffer!

Trigeminal Neuralgia :: Is Back With Nasty Jolt - On Lyrica

As some of you may already know my history you will be aware that my TN has returned. I started off on 25 mg of Lyrica twice a day and I am now on 50mg twice a day.

I just started to eat my cereals when I had this nasty electric jolt, that's the only way I can explain it, I felt it right from my right lower tooth, along my lower cheek and right into my right ear. I even felt in in my lower jaw. It lasted 3 minutes and brought me to tears. It's been a long time since I had it as bad as that. It stung like hell! I was ok until I took my first mouthful of food.

I'm quite happy being on a 50mg dosage, but if this keeps up I'll have to increase to 75mg. I can't remember the full dosage, but I hope I don't have to go that far.

Did any of you find that your TN bout came on just by eating food?
