I took Lyrica about 2 1/2 years ago. I don't remember sweating, but I do remember feeling terrible. They finally took me off when I went in for chest pain. I had very harsh side effects from it and it did not help me.
I was on Lyrica but it made me so sick and loopy I had to get off but it was not a side effect! I sweat all the time since I have had Fibromyalgia night sweats are the worst!! It can actually be a side effect of Fibromyalgia but not everyone experiences it! Maybe worth bringing it up with your doctor ? I know it's been very unpleasant for me. Any kind of exercise and I am instantly drenched same goes for nights. I have to get up and change my sheets and dry myself off! Terrible! I hope it's something you can resolve?! Good luck🙃
I am also on lyrica 120mgs twice a day. I also have night sweats but also sweat during the day when I do things to aggravate my CRPS. I've tried Gaba and it was so much worse than lyrica so I came off that and went back to lyrica. Everyone reacts differently to meds so it's almost a guessing game.
I am also on lyrica 450 mg/ day. I have excessive sweating all the time! I could be watching TV and the sweat would poor!!!! I'm not an overly big girl although I did gain 50 lbs since taking lyrica. My dr.told me that it was most likely the meds........ Or s symptom of fibromyalgia,either way it truly sucks!!!! I cannot do anything.
I've been on Lyrica for 9 months and in one way it's given me my life back BUT I have horrible night sweats, I can set my clock by them. I have it worse then even my menopause which ended 10 years ago. Thing is that I have less flare ups so I have installed a fan in my bedroom and I'm persisting with the Lyrica.
Lyrica has helped lengthen the time that I am able to be up & walking unaided by about 10 -15 minutes. Then the screaming pain gets worse. We won't go into the sweaty details, grrr. My doc just prescribed Cymbalta for new dx fibromyalgia, so I take them both. And the pain keeps screaming thru my body. So many years of it. As my life narrows down to this house in this small town, sometimes I wonder.....everybody take care. I am thinking of you💕
Silvrrry do u have pain sweats too? I have it and it's so embarrassing and painful. I'm also on both meds too and like u I have a little more mobility but I still need tromadol and Tylenol arthritis several times a day. But most times the only think that really helps is rest laying down. It's very debilitating.
Yes, Newfibrogirl, I do. It is really quite awful. I have not really put it all together until recently I suppose it could be related to the meds, but I think it is the pain. Ilt is so bad when I am in public . Ugh.
I agree. And I think at least for me it's both.. I was having pain sweats in the early stages of my illness ( I just didn't know what it was) but once I started the lyrica it was amplified. And certainly after I started the cymballta and my hormone treatment. I've been a soggy mess..
