pregabalin (150mg) for polyneuropathy

A very weird drug that made me really ill and sick. I don't really think that's the intention of it though. Didn't do what it was supposed to do as far as the pain relief went. Not taking this again.

pregabalin (75mg) for polyneuropathy

I stopped taking this last year because of the side effects. Was so dizzy. After this I took gabapentine and carbamazepine. Not happy. I've now started back on this, building it up in 25 mg and voila! No side effects. I'm now taking 2 x 75 mg but I still need to double this. I'm going to take my time over this. To cope with the severe pain I use emla cream. But my hearing and sight have been ve...

pregabalin (75mg) for neuralgia

I've got so much nerve pain, burning headaches, muscle pain, stomach pain etc. etc. I've also got fibromyalgia and have had for about 12 years tried all sorts of medication but I'm really sensitive to everything. Can't hardly do anything about it. Lyrica has taken away the feeling in my arms and legs, made it difficult for me to swallow and short of breath

pregabalin (75mg) for hernia

After no joy from GP, physical therapist, or x-ray finally got referral from the doctor for a neurologist. Pain was getting unbearable in my neck, shoulder and arm from which I could no longer sleep, sit or stand . While waiting for three weeks from MRI was offered Lyrica. After one pill Oxycodone and terrible side effects I was happy to try something new. No regrets. Now low levels of pain wit...

pregabalin (150mg) for neurofibromatosis

Because tramadol made me lose an enormous amount of weight I was switched to Lyrica. I now take 3 x 150 mg a day and the pain is definitely under control.

pregabalin (300mg) for neuralgia

In a nutshell and chronologically: because of conversion disorder several things needed to be discounted. Nerve pain all over my body, cramps and symptoms of organ failure. Walking was not pain-free (standing on my feet). Built up to 2 x 300 mg a day. Got over a lot, coped with many problems. (Side effects: difficulty urinating, sometimes can't go at all, very dry mouth, jaw pain, headache, wei...

pregabalin (150mg) for neuralgia

Been on 2 x 150 mg lyrica per day since May 2016, prescribed by the pain specialist. Because of it's reasonably good effect tried 2 x 75 mg after a few months. But for a while afterwards had a lot more continuing pain. So I was forced to go back up to 2 x 150 mg per day. Still not pain free even today but I've got a better quality of life. The side effects in the first two weeks were not pleasa...

pregabalin (150mg) for neuralgia

After first having 50 mg Lyrica 3 x day, increased to 150 mg 2 x day because of nerve pain from a triple hernia. The only side effect I've noticed is a dry mouth. The problems I had with urine retention because of the hernia have been noticeably improved by the Lyrica as well.

pregabalin (150mg) for neuralgia

Following a fractured heel and operation severe nerve pain. Pain specialist prescribed lyrica with phased increase. Pain reduced in part. For the past month I've been having tingling in my head. Is this because of the Lyrica??? Really stressed and anxious. Like there's not enough blood getting to my head. Is this something that is known about can anyone answer this for me???
