  • 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.

  • Lately I have MAJOR loss of cordination, pain shooting up from my hands to my elbows.... I am falling and tripping, unable to keep my balance. I am sick to my stomach all of the time. I throw up any solid foods. I have the runs, and major suicidal behaviours, I have been writing my goodbye letters to my family, saving up my pills, as well as buying more off of the street in order to kill myself. I cry constantly and would rather pee myself than crawl out of bed... What is wrong with me? I need help. Nothing but hopelessness and pain is all I feel inside my head and throughout my body... someone help me.... My mom just gave me some Lyrica hoping that I can replace my lamictal with that and that it will help me not feel like this I am leaving this trying to get more information
