From this study (1 year ago):
I am being weaned off of Lyrica and have severe withdraws
From this study (1 year ago):
2 weeks post discontinuing
no anxiety previous
hives have returned
From this study (4 years ago):
I am a very active 63 year old woman. Most of my friends marvel at my energy level. (at least, they did until two months ago) Had breast cancer in 2001 with mastectomy and chemo.
Developed chemo induced cardiomyopathy 7 years ago. Took beta blocker and ace inhibitor for a couple of years. E-F increased from 20 to 45%. Felt so good and didn't like the side-effects of emotional flatness and loss of libido (vaginal dryness) so stopped. Have felt really great until two months ago.
Cardiomyopathy has returned in 2010. E-F is 35%. Shortness of breath, tired, not able to walk my 3 miles a day. I am usually a very active person, but this has slowed me down again.
Am hoping that a return to the meds will help me boost my E-F back to 45%. Really don't like the side effects.
