The recommended dosages for adults and pediatric patients 1 month of age and older are included in Table 1. Administer the total daily dosage orally in two or three divided doses as indicated in Table 1.
In pediatric patients, the recommended dosing regimen is dependent upon body weight. Based on clinical response and tolerability, dosage may be increased, approximately weekly. Patients who do not experience sufficient pain relief after 2 to 3 weeks of treatment with mg two times a day and who tolerate LYRICA may be treated with up to mg two times a day [see Clinical Studies In view of dose-dependent adverse reactions and since LYRICA is eliminated primarily by renal excretion, adjust the dose in adult patients with reduced renal function.
Base the dose adjustment in patients with renal impairment on creatinine clearance CLcras indicated in Table 2. Then refer to Table 2 to determine the corresponding renal adjusted dose. For patients undergoing hemodialysis, adjust the pregabalin daily dose based on renal function. In addition to the daily dose adjustment, administer a supplemental dose immediately following every 4-hour hemodialysis treatment see Table 2.

Pain excruciating and numbness on left side. I was misdiagnosed as having psoriasis until I went to hospital almost 3 weeks later as I could not stand the pain in my head any longer all left side. There they put me on Lyrica 25 mg 3 times daily It had helped but still in a lot of pain I may have to get dose increased.
I've been taking for only 2 weeks however but my fibromyalgia pain that has haunted me for 12 years is absolutely GONE!!!! I'm a little nervous about the weight gain but we shall see I guess.
It really helped me to reduce the pain. The only thing is that I would feel really dizzy and sleepy. Constant none stop burning that makes a UTI seem like a holiday. I take Lyrica mg at bed time - nothing has come close to the long lasting relief I get from this drug - but all side effects mentioned by others I have and still experience and these have never gotten any better over the 5 yearsbut I would take this life any day over not having one at all. I have learned to live with these new minor inconveniences in the side effects to be free of my disabling pain.
If you have pain that has taken away most if not all of your quality of life - you may give into certain unpleasant effects of a drug just to have a chance at normal again -Lyrica has given me my life back! Listen to your body and learn from it and with it - be safe, any change that is making you feel uncomfortable or unwell report to your doctor for proper medical advice. I am currently taking mg twice a day. My side effects are slight and my pain level has decreased. During this time I weaned myself off the Cymbalta.
I am hoping this works so I can go walking without having pain in my feet. I reminded him all coffee is the same but there is also a difference. I am not diabetic and they checked me for lead and mercury so they have no idea what is causing my neuropathic pain but it has ruined my life.
I tried a variety of medications even medical marijuana to no avail. I also tried K-lasers and neurogenic electrical current machines which seemed to aggravate my condition. My vision would blur up and I had trouble doing routine tasks. My neck discs cause me severe pain and migraine specially beforeduring and after my periods any lyrica OD25 is my lifesavers it gives me relief.
Only side effect that I can notice his constipation. After 10 months, and nearly wiping out 6 months of research during my PhD, I visited a doctor in Chicago who warned me to taper down and get off the drug. I do not normally take medicines of any kind, other than antibiotics in the event of a serious bacterial infection. Based on my experience with Lyrica, I would not recommend it to anyone. Pfizer's multiple trials for this drug have been designed to try to offer it for every imaginable and even unimaginable problem.
It numbs the brain and turns a person into a blithering idiot while also catalyzing side-effects that range from nervous tics to suicidal ideation. Ten years later, I still have a mild, but irritating bruxism and semi-uncontrollable mouth movements. Rating the drug effective or ineffective is irrelevant.It specifically says on the lyrica website not to crush up the pills or do anything else with them but simply consume them as directed.
SWIM crushed up the pill immediately and snorted it like snuff. Just drew a line up and snorted it just like the 80s. As it just absorbed like candy!! It was an awesome experience, though SWIM will say the drip hurt, was horrible feeling and maybe almost made it not worth it not worth doing again for sure, just a once in a while or one time only kind of thingbut it was definitely worth it.
SWIM would never snort the full thing all at once again for sure. SWIM thinks that was too much. Maybe a quarter of it at a time. SWIM describes it as euphoria, really good euphoria.
A physical euphoria, a feeling you can actually feel and describe much better as it is happening. But no anxiety and total calmness. As a regular daily medication, it is probably much less effective due to tolerance build up though. Your email address will not be published. Skip to content SWIMs Experience of Snorting Lyrica to Get High Drug: Lyrica, aka pregabalin It specifically says on the lyrica website not to crush up the pills or do anything else with them but simply consume them as directed.
In the years since, researchers have discovered the many other uses for the drug. Like many drugs, it comes with a number of relatively harmless side effects. Lyrica can cause dry mouth, weight gain, and lethargy. However, it also has some more serious effects: it can mess with motor control, and cause confusion and memory issues. Perhaps most concerning, though, is the fact that it can also be used to create a high similar to that of benzodiazepines.What Does Xanax Really Do To Your Body?
And, if someone takes high doses of Lyrica for long enough, they may become addicted. Since the generic version was just released in the U. This is great news for those who have a prescription. Lyrica has a fairly low risk for addiction, compared to other drugs that can get you high. Still, the potential for abuse is definitely there. Still, the mild high combined with the relief of pain and anxiety can be addictive for some.
For many people, the ability to become free from anxiety or pain for a short while will lead them towards addiction. Many drug addictions and abuse situations start on accident, not on purpose. When you take two substances with such similar effects, each one becomes stronger than it would be on its own.
People who drink alcohol while taking Lyrica might experience poor coordination, impaired judgment, sleepiness, and sedation.
While each substance can produce these or similar effects alone, the effects become much worse when taken together. Drinking alcohol with Lyrica also makes people more likely to abuse the prescription drug, since its effects can become more potent and appealing. The intoxication may feel more like euphoria when the drug is mixed with alcohol, making the prospect of taking more of it more appealing.Log in. Can you get high off lyrica?
How much to get high? I am going to try and get help with Lyrica. Being in considerable pain, I know a bit of high is what will relieve me. My question to put it plainly is - can you get high of lyrica and how good is it as a pain killer? MinisterFeb 4, Yes, its a good pain killer, especially for nerve pain. Definitely can give you a high. How much dosage to get the high is subjective. If you are new to the drug, mg is plenty. But in general I would say anything over mg can get you high consistently.
Lyrica is good with the high! Lyrica does it for you. I have been having Lyrica for 1 year now because of my spinal cord injury. It definitely reduces the pain but at the same time it gives me a high which takes me out of the miserable pain world.
I have started to take mg of Lyrica to get into the trans mode, forget the pain and the world. It is an amazing drug. My brother is having mg of Lyrica but it does not get him high. It does reduce the fibromyalgia pain he is suffering. He is also on Benzo for his anxiety though and that's the one that does something mentally and gets him in a drowsy state which he kind of likes.
Last edited by a moderator: Feb 25, HydragirlFeb 8, I was given Lyrica for my neurotic pain, and it did wonders for the pain and gave me immediate relief. The other thing that I noticed was it took me into a euphoric state, which was awesome! I can say that I am addicted to Lyrica and will not leave it for any other medicine.
This is one of the best drugs to make you feel drunk. McFlyFeb 9, The doctor introduced me to Lyrica because of the nerve damage I had due to diabetes. I did not find much difference in the pain. The drunken feeling also did not hit me in the beginning.My wife was prescribed Lyrica for many yearsand we had no clue of it's side effects till last week.
This drug gave my wife a multitude of side effects over the years including Parifiel EdemaDiabetes from it raising her glucose intolerancy and raising her glucose levelsthe list goes on. All in all unless you are sure of its side effectsI would not recommend it to anyone. Couldn't tolerate it, went back to gabapentin.
Lyrica is not a good drug. I suffered a serve injury at work and since then I'm taking up to mg of Lyrica. And yes I said not It leave you depressed it leaves U with bad thoughts I'm glad I'm off it.
I have never been allergic to any other drug, that I know of. I am still sailing down the lyrica withdrawal, which was an absolute nightmare at first. I will forever regret taking this evil drug. Interesting medication. It has worked well for me and the side effects are minimal. My daily dose is mg.
I am using it to kill the extreme nerve pain in my legs and back caused by the sarcoidosis I fight each day. While no miracle drug, it does help.
I hate when folks say how a drug ruins their life, while in reality, it is the underlying illness or issues that is ruining our lives. If the drug does not help, stop using it talk to your doctor and ask to try another medication that will help you. Also remember that if you take other medications to inform your doctor of this, as to prevent negative drug interactions.
No alcohol or street drugs as I'm sure that this will impact and enhance all Lyrica's negative effects. We are all different, so it stands to reason Lyrica's effects can be different as well.
My experience with Lyrica is that yes I get dizzy and at times drowsy, and bit sillybut when dealing with pain constantly at an insane level, it does a decent job. For me this justifies me taking it. First i want to say this drug is a godsend i suffered from pain and cramping in both my hands from damaged nerves for years the pain was unbearable also i was very shy and suffered gad all my life started taking 10mg a day for the first 3 days then 75 mg a day felt spaced out a lot at first went up mg a day 3 x mg as i first started taking it for pain i noticed i was no longer shy or gad i could walk into shops and talk to people for the first time in my life without getting afraid im now on mg in the morning 5 years later and ive never felt better i jog keep fit but only prob is in the bedroom hard to keep it up as it feels dead sometimes but i can live with that.
I was prescribed Lyrica mg to be taken at bedtime for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis, degenerative disk disease, bone spurs in both hip joints and extensive lumbar arthritis.She is a marketer and community manager for Inbound.
