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):
- Does lyrica cause neutropenia and if it does, how long does it take to subside after stopping the drug?
The patient is a 28 year old female who has been involved in a horrific car accident back in February 7th 2014. She had bilateral femural fracture along with fractured right tibia and fibula in addition to right humerus. However, to make it short, after treatment, the outcome was not acceptable with various complications. The patient is scheduled for another surgery, however, her CBC shows neutropenia (3.4).
- Can i take a steroid while taking xarelto (1 answer)
I took prednisone for constant cough. had 3rd surgery on back one year ago. Had to patch spinal cord. Got blood clots. Had pulmonary embolism. Now have severe bronchitis. I know the prednisone will take care of cough, but what else?
- How much do i decrease at a time, and how long should the decrease last. lyrica, and symbalta
After the extreme weight gain. The dizziness. The exhaustion all the time. Nausea consistently before, during and after eating. Extreme lower back pain. Leg pain, cramping, and jerking. Now her oxygen levels are from 82-95 tops with the bi-pap. She finally wants to quit taking Lyrica, cymbalta, forteo, and all the prescription stomach meds she has to take because she's on them. I am figuring lowering 25 mgs at a time and staying there for 28 days with the Lyrica. She's been on Lyrica and cymbalta for 5-1/2 years. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know with the severity of her problems she will not make it another three years. The confusion she's in approximately 70% of the time I'm going to lose her. She woke up and was totally confused while I was in the restroom for a couple minutes and I wound up rushing her to the hospital where she died in my arms before bringing her back three times because she took 17-15 mg oxycodone thinking they were her night pills. The reason I'm going into so much detail is to show the severity. Every doctor I've spoken with has said 25-50 mgs for two weeks is the norm. I told her doctor when he bumped her from 75 to 150 she wouldn't be able to take it. I am absolutely positive her body will go through major withdrawals and I can't have that happen. Thank you for taking the time to read everything I've written.

- Fructose malabsorption symptoms become wore with effexor
I took Venlafaxine for several years. During that time I was diagnosed with Fructose Malabsorption (FM), something I suspect that I have had for years already. For a period of two years I switched medication and took some other SSRIs instead of Venlafaxine and then returned to Venlafaxine and found that my FM symptoms right away increased/returned. When I came off of Venlafaxine I noticed that my FM symptoms became easier to manage but going back on Venlafaxine has confirm that it does indeed cause greater IBS and FM symptoms.
- Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
- Leg pain especially near knees after taking lyrica
Had to stop taking Lyrica due to joint pain in both legs. Difficult to get up from sitting position to stand. Ache in knee's can't relax to sleep. Motrin and vicodin not helping with pain. Also have applied muscle cream not working for pain. Have been off the lyrica for 3 months with no let up in pain. Did not have this pain before taking lyrica.
