hi am a newbie here. i got my first try at this new drug called lyrica. okay, it is 12;20 pm in florida here i took it with food at 6pm and fell asleep within two hours of taking my first 50 mg dose. i had a most bizzare dream, first of al,l i usually dont dream much although i do take xanxax .50mg daily and vicoin 5.325 mg twice daily and beconase ( nasal steriordal spray for alleriges) i suffered from hallucations on my first dose of lyrica after waking up i SAW hot air balloons floating down in my room and puppets moving along with wide teeth bats flying around the room.
i am awake now but wonder if i should keep on with this or call it a day with it already...what would you do. this is my last try at meds.
i suffer from depresion, aniexty, and chronic pain disorder as well as GSD (gen seizure disorder) on my eeg i had a score of 1 from 0-4 and a digital anylsis done also which told me nothing.
i have this from a car crash that i suffered almost 3 years ago and underwent a posterior and anterior cervical fusion C-5-6-7 which left me with 11 screws and 4 metals plates in my neck. they used my hip bone for the posterior and used allograft (cadaver) for my front of my neck. i had a laminectomy posteriior, foraminotomy, CORPECTOMY front (total removal of diseased bone or shatterd bone from c-1 down to c-5).
i took 5 pints of blood. been on oxy, went off cause i couldnt pee anymore on it, but tolerate viccodin although i am wondering if my liver is rotting away from all the tylenol. i tried topamax (sucked big time) and other junk that i had to stop.
a friend of mine who has 'fibro' told me about lyrica. i have constant pain nearly 24/7 on a scale of about 5-6 on meds and 9 off. so i call the doctor and this is what he gave me, they dont know what else to give me anymore as i tried lots including prozac, paxil, effexor (awful to get off from) celexa, lexapro you name it i been there.... anyone have any other bad stuff rom lyrica??????????? thanks
