Lyrica Constipation Causes and Reviews


Constipation means that a person has three or fewer bowel movements in a week. The stool can be hard and dry. Sometimes it is painful to pass. At one time or another, almost everyone gets constipated. In most cases, it lasts a short time and is not serious.

There are many things you can do to prevent Constipation. They include

  • Eating more fruits, vegetables and grains, which are high in fiber
  • Drinking plenty of water and other liquids
  • Getting enough exercise
  • Taking time to have a bowel movement when you need to
  • Using laxatives only if your doctor says you should
  • Asking your doctor if medicines you take may cause Constipation

It's not important that you have a bowel movement every day. If your bowel habits change, however, check with your doctor.

Lyrica Constipation Reviews

Thu, 11 Mar 2010
I have been taking Lyrica for just over 3 years now. My dosage is 450mg/day (225 am and 225 pm). Was prescribed medication with respect to severe radicular neuropathic pain (nerve and nerve root damage in lower back). At the time I started taking it I could barely walk anymore and could not sit, stand, or lay down for reasonable lengths of time without developing severe pain. Initial problems with Constipation (counter-acted with diet changes) until became used to dosage and take daily cup of probiotic yogurt :-). Daily side effect is a bit of a 'zoning out' period generally experienced about 3 hours after taking and lasts approx. 30-40 min. Occasional drowsiness depending on existing tiredness. This, in a sense, has been my miracle medication as the result has been a significant reduction in pain. Initial dosages were lower and I built up tolerance with slow increase. However, I am hoping for other solutions to my medical condition as I would like to reduce or eliminate the need for this medication.
