Lyrica Muscular Weakness Causes and Reviews


Myasthenia gravis is a disease that causes weakness in your voluntary muscles. These are the muscles that you control. For example, you may have weakness in the muscles for eye movement, facial expressions, and swallowing. You can also have weakness in other muscles. This weakness gets worse with activity, and better with rest.

Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease. Your body's immune system makes antibodies that block or change some of the nerve signals to your muscles. This makes your muscles weaker.

Other conditions can cause muscle weakness, so myasthenia gravis can be hard to diagnose. Tests used to make a diagnosis include blood, nerve, muscle, and imaging tests.

With treatment, the muscle weakness often gets much better. Medicines can help improve nerve-to-muscle messages and make muscles stronger. Other drugs keep your body from making so many abnormal antibodies. These medicines can have major side effects, so they should be used carefully. There are also treatments which filter abnormal antibodies from the blood or add healthy antibodies from donated blood. Sometimes, surgery to take out the thymus gland helps.

Some people with myasthenia gravis go into remission. This means that they do not have symptoms. The remission is usually temporary, but sometimes it can be permanent.

Lyrica Muscular Weakness Reviews

extreme weight gain 30lbs, sleepiness, insomnia when tried to decrease medication

Mon, 09 Apr 2012

I am a 27 year old male who has been on Lyrica for about a year now. I firmly believ Lyrica has lowered my IQ. My first month taking it I would walk into car doors and one I even fell in the shower. I have an Accounting degree and graduated with a 3.7 from a state university. I have complained about thr side effects to my wife my doctor and even my mother but nobody seems to think they are as profound as I. I know how fast I used to get things and how quick I was when it came to conversation. Now I have a hard time remembering things, like big words or people's names. I know I over compensate but others don't because I still sound intelligent. I know I'm haven't truly been dumbed down but I do have worries as you do that when I come off it nothing will change. I'm currently dealing with a bad doctor who prescribed me this among a few other things and has literally left town. So tomorrow I'll be searching for a doc to ween me off. The benefits were great but I was better off without thr meds. I'll be honest I've never felt a medicine so powerful but in such a weird way. It's like what I would assume light brain damage would be like. My wife now thinks I'm ADD. I'll report back if you'd like my weenin off. In my humble opinion I would have a talk with your doctor and maybe even get a secon opinion. Lyrica is a new drug but it's class isn't. The literature is all over the place on it right now but the patients all say what I'm saying and what you are reporting. I don't think a young man as your son should be on this. He won't remember high school if he does. I have had a hard time remembering yesterday with it. Hope this helps. Im praying I come out unscathed. I never thought I'd be one of those medicine law suit people but if this thing messes with me I wouldn't hesitate.

Sun, 20 May 2012

I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your daughter -it must be devastating! My 60 year old husband was recently, mistakenly, prescribed double the manufacturers recommended maximum dose of pregabalin (Lyrica). For four months he endured severe side effects, until the mistake was finally discovered! We are now in the process of taking legal action.

Fri, 23 Mar 2012

My sons pain specialist put him on Lyrica at the age of 16.5 even though the litriature sais that Lyrica has not been deemed safe for use on patients under 18 years , My son has not had Lyrica for 20 months and still has significant concentration and memory problems and complains that he does not feel well and just wants his brain back . I firmly believe that Lyrica has caused him brain damage as he was sharp as a tack despite pain before he took Lyrica and since has not been right . My questions is , is it normal for Doctors to prescribe Lyrica under the age of 18 agains the manufacturers advice  and is he likely to ever recover from this obcene drug ? i am very worried he has been damaged for life .

Fri, 16 Dec 2011

I've taken Lyrica for PHN for 11 months. I've tapered from 150mg to 75mg to 50mg to 25mg. I'm on the 4th day of zero dosage and I immediately developed both upper and lower respiratory issues, including copious amounts of green, even brown mucus from my sinuses and lungs. Any advice is greatly valued.

Fri, 14 Aug 2009
I have had many of the problems reported here after being on Lyrica. I am also experiencing symptoms of thyroid problems and will follow up with my doctor. Has anyone here had thyroid issues, and if so, do these clear with time?Thanks. What a horrible horrible experience. I can't believe with so many patients having such a horrendous experience that they are allowed to dispense Lyrica.
