- I stopped taking lyrica 3days ago after experiencing ankle swelling. ankles are still swollen. how long before swelling goes always
Took Lyrica for 1 week. Noticed swelling in ankles so discontinued 3days ago. I take LASIK and an ACE for high blood pressure. Swelling is better but still there. How long before swelling goes away and is there anything I can do to help ie compression hose elevated feet?
- I take methadone hydro 10mgs/3prn how does it interact w/my other meds
My pain and sleep problems-which are neurologically based, predates methadone use- have been well managed for at least 6 years. My methadone dose has never changed nor do I feel the need for more. Though it does cause constipation it is managed fairly well with ample hydration (minimum intake 64 oz bottled water)and a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. My biggest frustration is with DOCTORS who seem to have a universal programming in their mind about methadone. Every time a new doctor comes in the picture I have to fight with him/her about their PREJUDICE and bad information. The horror stories are always related to ABUSE of medication (DUH!!)which I have never done.Only one doctor has bothered to explain what the worse side effects are and CARDIOMYOPATHY is one that alarmed me. My next visit will see me asking for a test to see if there are any signs. Otherwise, except for not getting enough exercise (my bad) I consider myself in fairly good health. I hate taking all the pills, but the alternative is debilitating pain and never sleeping. NOT HAPPENING! Thanks for reading this. I hope it encourages someone to not be so fearful and to take control of their pain management.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
I have been taking these meds since last March/April. They seem to have improved my condition considerably during last summer.
However, for some reason I regressed in December 2014. I do not know why. Doctor has recommended that I decrease daily intake of Hydroxychloroquine from 200mg to 100mg. I have started doing this about a week ago but I am not feeling much different.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Severe back pain, sneezing, chills, anger
From this study (1 month ago):
Had stomach adhesions in April, 2014 - subsided after 3 days in hospital. Tried to get off doxepin, but felt overwhelmed with anxiety -family doctor put me back on Doxepin after trying other anti-anxiety meds. What are chances that Doxepin caused adhesions?
