    Took a 300mg Pregabalin around about 18:00, then had dinner with a freind. Due to tolerance I didn't get any strong effects from the pregabalin.

  • 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.

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • When I went off Lyrica I smelled the most offensive odor ever! My brain identified it in my sleep as the smell of slime eels. I took the meds for only three months. But that smell surfaces now every time I smell bread warming or toasting. Even bread baked of unusual things and those in foreign countries I visit, trigger that smell. It makes me gag and then I can't eat the offending food. The original horrible smell lasted 3 days, gradually lessening until I could eat on the 3rd day. But the smell persists and I have been off the Lyrica for 2 months now.
