I just started Lyrics and I feel loopy and no appetite is that normal?
Funnily enough it’s the only one that’s worked for me & been on it for I reckon 6 years ish taking 2 x 300mg per day.
Originally Doc started me off with Prozac, Duloxetine & Amitriptyline but I put 4 stone on, was totally bloated so very uncomfortable, completely depressed so weaned myself off all that cocktail.
Everyone is different so a bit of trial and error a necessity I’m afraid.
However I’m still in a state but it’s about the best state i can tolerate 😵💫😬🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️
It didn't work for me either, actually caused an episode. It works for some.
I was put on low dose it didn’t take pain away gave me headache didn’t make me sleep all these tablets they try you on bring on more symptoms I give up gone back on my co codomal
Be very careful I'm taking it. I did a few years ago and it made me suicidal. Not good
Lisa 1968, brain fog is a side effect of fibro but with some meds that can be more of a problem.
So memory loss is a side affect of Lyrica? Not Fibro?
I was happy and relaxed but the Doc keep increasing my levels to the point of just being in a stupid foggy haze. Memory was gone. I wouldn't remember coversations with my spouse which lead to argumenta. All the while the pain would continue to break thru no matter the dosage hence why I got off it. Good luck and I sure hopes it works for you.
No appetite? That's great! I gained a ton of weight and am I'm the process with my doc of weening off of it.
Thank you ladies for your input truly appreciate it. So far I feel loopy, no appetite and very relax and happy...
I had a real bad reaction from Lyrica. It made me loopy, forgetful, no appetite but weight gain. Eventually had to wean myself off of it.
