Medication Lyrica

Hi again I’m feeling very woozy and clumsy on the increase of lyrica. I’ll be talking to doc again next week and will tell him.

I feel like a zombie. I’m always clumsy and awkward but it’s worse now last few days. I did bake a cake though so that was a huge step for me.

Maybe it takes time for the meds to work. I’m definitely better than what I was mood wise. I don’t like the unwanted thoughts I’m having. They upset me.

I’m rushing around as well cant sit still. Doc thought the Abilify can be responsible for that, but I’m staying on the 10mg.

Hopefully all will settle.

Thanks

The “5mg is not a therapeutic dose…” Is just my tagline, it appears on every post I make. :slightly_smiling_face:

From one butterfly to another :slightly_smiling_face: i was on 600 mg, full dose, of Lyrica. It didn’t help with my anxiety and it was horrible to wean of the drug, had abstinences for a month.

In fact lyrica increased my abuse of alcohol and opiates. I used Lyrica as you would use street-drugs, mixed it with alcohol and a little opiate and it gave me a pleasant buzz, but didn’t help with my MI.

Hope it works better for you.

Hi sorry to hear you had such a hard time and that the lyrica didn’t work for you. I’ll give it another bit to see if it works for me. Will talk to doc next week again so will give it till then.

I’m fierce drowsy though since the increase but was already drowsy before starting the lyrica. It’s just worsened since upping to 100mg twice daily.

Hopefully you will feel better soon:)
