First night on Lyrica

Nov 11, 2015 1:16 AM

Got my first prescription for Lyrica today.
What is your experience with it?
How long did it take for you to feel a difference?
I'm a little bit worried about what to expect.
Having bad anxiety tonight, is it a bad idea to take adivan knowing I'll be taking the lyrics soon?

Hi i had heart flutters with Lyrica then was put on gabapentin, sort of the same thing. only took 2 days to settle my hyper active nerves in my leg only to a small degree but any thing less is a great help. Bye. Greg

I was told to watch for heart palpations due to the hyperthyroidism so that's helpful to know thank you

I've sort of reduced my nerve activation mainly from a good psychiatrist, for the nerve problem I had crushed nerves in my spine, a work injury . the psychiatrist are the only ones who prescribe, ie anti epilepsy and such for non psychiatric problems. I hope you get the right medication, it does help sometimes. Bye Greg

I hope any side effects will be short lived for you Birdiebabe. I've never taken it but suspect my pain doc may put me on gabapentin next week. Good luck with positive results! πŸ™πŸŒ½

Thanks guys! I slept alright and I haven't noticed any side effects yet. That being said I still haven't gotten out of bed yet ✨
Preparing myself for a long day.

I haven't taken lyrics but I have taken gabapetin and it helped a lot with the pain I have in my feet and back n shoulder's, praying you have minimal to no side effects! πŸ™πŸ’•

It took me about two weeks to get use to Lyrica. It made me very dopey the first two weeks & brain fog very bad. After that, I got use to it and been on it almost 2 years. I'm also on Cymbalta too. So I get a double dose of each. Good luck, gentle hugs :)
