Good Morning, I am getting ready for work, and this is my 5th day off the vicodens. I did not get any withdrawals,just lotsa, lotsa pain. I am on Lyrica, & it is starting to work on Some of the aches and pains. I was prescribed to take 2 but I am taking 3 a day. I have a bad back, in which, I need surgery, but the Lyrica is not helping that at all. So, to be honest, I am cheating. I have a friend who gets percocets, and I have been breaking them in half and taking 3 a day(1 1/2). I have to, I am at work, and in so much pain from that. I am determined, and I will stick this out.
Thanks for the support
No pharmacokinetic interactions have been demonstrated in vivo. The manufacturer notes some potential pharmacological interactions with opioids (pregabalin is synergistic with opioids in lower doses), benzodiazepines, barbiturates, ethanol(alcohol) and other drugs that depress the central nervous system
Perhaps the BT pain should be addressed with something differant. Would be a good idea to bring up your continued pain when you talk to your doctor next.
