Lyrica. For Etc

Lyrica. For Etc

Does it make you sleepy, side effects to look for etc

@A MyFibroTeam Member Lyrica definitely messes with your memory. I find that when I'm talking I can't even remember basic words, so I looked at the side effects and one of them is 'difficulty finding words'. It's an actual side effect! I was so relieved because I thought I was losing my mind! :P

It doesn't make me sleepy but it does effect my short term memory so I'm extremely forgetful and I find it so frustrating. The problem is that I find it really helps with the pain so I decided to experiment.
I used to take it morning and night and decided to take the full dose at night only to see what happens, and it seems to have helped as the side effects during the day aren't as intense. They are still there, but not as bad.

Hope that helps :)

My daughter is an RN and she is into the natural remedies. She did some research on my Fibro. She's a firm believer that if it can be helpful using natural products then she's all for it. She does not like seeing all the meds that doctors prescribe for their patients. She has me on products from Do terra Essential Oils for my Fibro and working on my MS. The products I take for my Fibro really help me. Most of my pain is in my back and the fronts of my legs. I notice a difference when I miss a dose. They have to be taken after a meal. I try to take mine in the morning but sometimes I wait until after lunch. She knows that if I'm on to many drugs that I can't get from point A to point B without explicit directions. When I was first diagnosed with Fibro they just kept increasing the pain med and I couldn't tell which end was up! My PCP helped me get straightened around by process of elimination,very thankful for him doing that. I'm also very thankful for my daughter taking the time to check things out for me.
