Lyrica Report: Disinhibition confusion inability stop

A following Lyrica side effect report was submitted by a user.

Female patient reported the following Lyrica side effects :
Disinhibition, confusion, inability to stop talking, mind is in slow motion, flatline thoughts; no conscious thoughts, slurred speech, mild back pain, dizziness, somnolence

It\'s as if everything I\'m thinking is bypassing my brain and coming out of my mouth. I do not feel full and need to \'taste everything\'. I don\'t care about any consequences and will do anything that pleases me at that moment. Time seems to have slowed down in my head. I experience slurred speech and am often confused by basic directions. Even though I am bipolar, these symptoms only occur on Lyrica and are severe in their nature.

Most drugs have a large list of nonsevere or mild adverse effects which do not rule out continued usage. These effects depend on individual sensitivity, and can include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, malaise, vomiting, headache, dermatitis, dry mouth, etc. Check commonly reported side effects . These can be considered a form of pseudo-allergic reaction, as not all users experience these effects; many users experience none at all. PatientsVille on Facebook
