Gabapentin made me put on weight so i stopped that.. i was taking it with my lyrica. The lyrica works fine i was quite fuzzy at first but that eased up, I've been on it for quite a while now any side effects i had from it eased up almost completely
I was on Lyrica fir a few weeks and lost all sense of taste. It was miserable. That was enough for me to quit. I have regained the ability to taste my food, albeit not as good as I'd like. I am now starting gabapentin. Hoping for the best.
I had terrible side effects which settled after a couple of weeks, it can be described as nothing but drunkenness. Definitely do not plan on driving for a while after starting. I take it coupled with Tramadol, they each enhance the other. I spent some time finding the right dose and am now very settled. Side effects can include both reduced libido and sexual dysfunction - a double whammy! Side effects come back after any variance so I have to be very careful to remember to take them.
So sorry these drugs do not work for you. The lyrica was working beautiful ly until Christmas. I change how I dosed it to help me sleep. I may put it back the way I had it & focus on melatonin & magnesium. I may feel better after topical pain meds get filled at compounding pharmacy. I am going to have Doctor write letter for CBD oil. There is a provider close who delivers.
