    I have gained about 35 pounds, and I have the cognitive effects listed in the prescribing information--problems with thinking and concentration." I've been off Lyrica once, and the side effects went away, but I couldn't get out of bed in the morning

Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • I take 20mg of amitriptyline each notgh to help me sleep. i have just been diagnosed with parkinsons and need to takae azilect, whihc is an mao-b inhibotor, can i take them together
    Can I take both these tables together? My consultant said it was ok to take both
    but the Amitriptyline instructions say do not take with MAO-B inhibitors, Azilect is an MAO-B inhibitors
  • Can i take ibuprophen while i'm taking lyrica
    I'm taking Lyrica for shingles. Although it has greatly helped with the pain, I still have considerable itchiness and pain upon touching the affected area.

    Can I take ibuprophen along with the lyrica?

    Any suggestions for the itch?
  • Can curcumin c3 complex cause very dry mouth?
    I have been takingall the above drugs since being diagnosed with Sarcoidosis in 1998-99. The only variation is prednisone which I take only when I have a flare. Itook my first Curcumin C3 Complex capsule 3 days ago. 500mg. I decided to start with one a day for awhile. After a few hours I had the dryestmouthever! Both days it has impimproved considerably by the end of the 24hours. A couple hours after takingit this morning mymouth is horribly dry again. It has to be the Curcumin since nothing else has changed for years. Anyone else with this problem? The reason I amtaking it is a couple of years ago my gastrodr wanted me to take it for my GERD but I didn't want to. But the other day I read that it helps with joint pain which I have badly so thought I'd give it a try for both reasons.
  • Is high ck (702) related to parkinson's (1 answer)

  • Lyrica is giving me nightmares
    I have fibromyalgia and a history of being allergic to or very sensitive to medications
    But Lyrica is really causing me some nightmares,sleepless nights, weight gain, headaches. I love that in the beginning I was able to get relief from fibromyalgia . It only made me really dizzy and disoriented on it. Now with theses symptoms I will definitely have to give it up. I can't seem to get any relief from this pain. I am so allergic to meds this is frustrating and miserable that meds make it worse.
  • Lyrica and doxylamine - not a good cocktail!
    I've been taking Lyrica 125mg total per day in 2x doses for 6 weeks, a few manageable side effects, (gaining weight and feeling dopey) I don't like it, but I recognise its ability to reduce @ 50% of the nerve pain and ability to help me function at work while I wait to see the surgeon.

    I took 50mg Doxylamine at night as a suggestion from a pharmacist to help sleep. Not a great idea! In the morning I was dulled, dopey. My speech was slurred, it made thinking very difficult and I couldn't drive safely. Felt spacey and stoned. For 48 hours!!! Even taking just 25mgs had long lasting side effects.
    I don't recommend this cocktail!

    Switched from Atripla to Complera about 4 months ago due to neuronal toxicity. Started Complera and gained over twenty pounds in a month and continue to gain. I have always been thin with a very high metabolism. Now I have to watch ever single thing I eat.
