Female 54 years old, Intelligence Researcher, London - I'm very worried, been taking Lyrica for 3 years, side effects were hilarious at first (felt drunk all the time) - now not so funny, My short term memory is useless, I live on my own and feel very scared about the long term effects of this drug I'm on 150mg in the morning and 300mg at night, if I try to cut down my neurology symptoms start up very soon after. I'm daydreaming and forgetting that I'm cooking (burning a lot of stuff) forgetting to get shopping I need, I even had to write an itinerary for the mornings just to get me out the door to work!

Tous les docteurs disent que le LYRICA ne donne pas l'alzheimer, mais depuis que je l'ai pris et pourtant pas longtemps, je perds la mémoire et j'ai des troubles de la concentration etc..
Help please, est ce que c'est passager ou définitif

I have been in pain and have suffered for over 7 years with muscle pain with cramping, aching, burning, stinging, pins/needles, weakness, numbness and paralysis, etc. I live with fatigue and utter exhaustion everyday and hate having to take medicine period, but have no choice in the matter. I know that this is something serious..I can feel it. I just have to get the Doctors, to find it...and fix whatever it is that is wrong.
I am trying to find what is the root cause of it all, then I might be able to find some relief.."Lord Willing". I have always been a driven individual and love life. I am a fighter and a survivor, so I will continue forward..until I find a way to the answer.
The pain level stays around 5 or 6 everyday and can be overwhelming at times, but I pray and I find relief for a moment..from The Lord. Grateful to be alive. Just want life to be normal again and to be able, to spend my time with my family that I have missed so much of.

often, procholinergics such as donezepil or galantamine (among others), are given to offset the anticholinergic effects of lasix. One of the main causes of symptoms of dementia-both Alzheimer's and vascular dementia--is a deficiency of Acetycholine (this is a side-effect of anticholinergics such as lasix). Increasing levels of acetycholine, by these or other means, can alleviate many of the symptoms.
Greg on Nov, 26, 2012:
My mom was very independent until we went into the hospital six weeks ago. She was impacted real bad and had an urinary track infection.
They gave her fentanyl and also began giving her Lasix, among other drugs.
Now her mind is in la la land. She also has trouble concentrating. Cannot speak very well. This is heart-breaking! Just last week they diagnosted dementia. She never had this, ever before.
I also called then FDA to see if they had a report on Lasix, they did NOT.
