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):
- Why is restoril showing poaitive in my urin when i never took this drug (2 answers)
I have been ill for 15 years, taking Methadone all the while along with Soma and Hydrocodone for break thru pain. I now include Lyrica daily.I have had 2 back surgeries, one detailing rod and cage around L4 L5 in 2007. Most recent Nov 2013 at the Laser Spine Institute for spine decompression in that same area. Diagnosed w/ Arachnoiditis 15 yrs ago when working full time and since Methadone seems to be my only safe bet to take so that I can function. 4 years on Hizentra IVG home treatment every week. Lorazapam was prescribed for panic. Tried Diazapam more than 8-9 months ago, however that drug seems to back up in my system therefore I get no immediate relief but sort of a knock out sleep 8 hours later so we went back to Lorazapam. I am now unfortunately disabled, mostly homebound and 60 yrs old. Since this past August my urin specimen has come back positive for Restoril. This past month Restoril is still positive and described as habitual use. I am staring down a discharge from my physician who I care for, respect and admire, I never ever thought this would happen. We just took another test I offered to get another different Lab test she told me to wait so I am but its killing me. I never took a sleeping other than Unisom OTC in my Entire life. Never been prescribed Restoril, no offense but would never take it on top of what I already take and Lord knows how I would react to this drug. If I am awake all night that's just the way it is and I live with it. Why is this foreign drug showing up in my system? Please help. Thank you kindly, Louise
- Is bed wetting part of having syringomyelia
i also use panadol osteo, mintec, apo-meloxicam. i have wetting the bed is was just now and then but it has started to become more frequent now, does any one else had this happen.
- Would taking a low dose of lisinoril and low dose of black cohosh periodically at different times of the day help to prevent or lessen the possibilities of drug interaction?
I'm 49 y/o still having regular periods, prehypertensive and premenopausal now for the last 2-3 years. My PCP finally put me on a very low dose of Lisinopril 5mg QD my B/P is now below or right at text book perfect. I started to have off and on s/sx of menopause very infrequent. Found a tincture made by a reptubal company of natural herbs and spices that makes a combo of black cohosk, black licore, chastise berry, etc. I use a very small amount on occasions when I think I might be feeling "the change" coming on. I seem to have equal positve effects from both drugs but I'm concerned about the studies that show long term ill effects!
- Lisinopril's interaction with aspirin and hawthorn
I'm about to change from captopril to lisinopril mainly for cost reasons, no other reasons really. I've been taking 650 mg. aspirin (enderic) and 200mg. extracted hawthorn (1.8% vitexin-2'-rhamnocide) along with 450 mg. of hawthorn berries. Now I read that I'm not to take either the aspirin nor the hawthorn along with the lisinopril. What's up with that? Have I been taking the wrong combo for the last 14 yrs? My dr. seems to question the aspirin taking in a vague sort of way. Knows nothing about hawthorn. Can someone set me straight on this? I did have a minor heart attack, losing some muscle, and need nitro in order to hike or walk the dog. Otherwise fine. This initial script was given to me by the cardiologist who did the angioplast on me in the hospital. Two enderic aspirins, two captoprils, and two metoprolol tartrates per day. I added the hawthorn myself. So when I start taking lisinopril next month do I have to quit the aspirin and hawthorn? And how can hawthorn hurt? They both reduse blood pressure, right? I do have hypertension problems.

- 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.
- Awful lisinopril raised my liver enzymes too high
That awful lisinopril raised my liver enzymes high, gave me a rash too . I feel poisoned , I tried to quit it and my bp skyrocketed . I had some clonodine so I took half of a one milligram pill and my bp lowered. Now my dr says because I am on atenolol I have to stop it before I can take clonodine . So I am trying, but lisinopril is a terrible drug. These doctors push it on us , I wonder why.
- 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!
- Lisinopril caused peripheral neuropathy
I began taking 10mg of Lisinopril recently and within a month began having moderate peripheral neuropathy. The neuropathy was shooting or stabbing sharp pains in hands and feet, burning calves, pins and needles in and around the eyes and ears, and burning eyes. This was so pronounced that I requested the doctor to switch me to Losartan immediately. The peripheral neuropathy quickly subsided and is gone ! My doctor had never heard of the Lisinopril causing this but now she knows. So people - you need to be your own advocate when you know something isn't right.

From this study (8 months ago):
From this study (10 months ago):
I am normally stable minded, but sometimes I curse more than usual while on drugs, it seems involuntary. There is not a direct etiology for this, it just happens. I suffer with fibromyalgia, lupus. diabetes and RLS. The pain is sometimes is so severe that I am rendered useless. I am a songwriter but my interest has dwindled IE: No energy to write.
Switched from gabapentin to lyrica to ease effects of low white blood cell count.
can any of these meds cause trigeminal neuralgia?
