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):
- What are the side effects of taking methadone and cefdinir
I know there are some antibiotics that do not go well with methadone. I need to know if anyone has ever had these two together and how well it worked or not
- 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.
- 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.

- 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.
- Drugs are killing us
Chronic sinusitis, hands shake, heart races. These conditions are horrendous. If I don't take this drug I can't breathe. Any suggestions would be appreciated otherwise I will have to live in the Dominican Republic where these symptoms disappeared immediately as I walked up hills and never once used my Ventolin. Go figure.
- 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!
- Bactrim-hypopigmentation, nausea, other side effects
Took bactrim for 7 days 2x a day, was told to take for 14 days. Had persistent and worsening nausea, vomiting, fatigue, hypopigmentation of my skin when I sat in the sun for over 5 minutes, inability to fall asleep, headache, and neck pain. Ended up with low iron and folic acid levels, which were treated with supplements and discontinuation of the Bactrim resolved symptoms.
- Severe leg/foot/ankle swelling from doxycycline
Was given five-day course of doxycycline for sinusitis and laryngitis. By end of third day had ankle edema (never had before), then MASSIVE leg/foot/ankle edema by fourth day Discontinued on fifth day after research revealed side effect of doxycycline. Took almost a week for swelling to go comletely away. Also felt completely exhausted and seemed to make the coughing and laryngitis much worse also.

I have sinus pain, congestion, headaches, sleeplessness, and hopelessness cause by the pain. I have tried just about everything. I take no other medicine so there can not be a question of drug interaction. I eat no red meat, dairy, nothing with lots of fat or sugar, as few as possible processed foods - like I said everything I know of. I sure would like a solution. Dos it exist?
