I cut my lyrica from 200mg to 50mg and started to feel very sick and had stomach pains this went on for a couple of weeks and went away when I put the dose back to 300 but I want to stop them
im back at 100 mg and will stay on that dose for 1 month 50 twice a day then see how things go to reduce more
When I stopped my meds. I did it with my Dr.s help. You have to slowly ween off them. I m glad I did. I don't feel as spacey . be careful and get some help. It took about a month for me .
Sounds like withdrawl symptoms. Gabapentin, lyrical, and Cymbalta have hellish withdrawals. Some say worse than opioids. Sorry you are going through this. 😢
I had to go off lyrica after six years of thinking I had found my miracle drug. The dude effects became unbearable. The withdrawal is horrendous. It takes quite awhile to get off of it. Only do it under medical supervision. I don’t think the doctors even know at this point how slowly to do it. I was on 300. Of course I wAnted to get off it ASAP so I wasn’t iwn worst
I have read several articles and they say it is very painful when you cut back.
I cutback from 150 mg to 100 and was also having too stop steroids. Not wean off , stopping cold turkey. My doctor recommended I stay home from work a couple of days and stay close to home. I slept alot or as much as i could. Not a fun week.
I've heard Cymbalta withdrawal is a lot worse.
