I was in a car accident some years back and have chronic back and neck pain. I was put on Lyrica a few years ago. I noticed that if I forgot to take the Lyrica for, like a day or two(was on vacation) then I start to have reactions like: start to feel very hot and clammy like I am about to get sick with a cold/fever or something, start to feel ill all over the body, it is really awful. I notived that after I took the Lyrica...this reaction went away. If I ever need to get off the drug, how can I? has anyone else experienced this?
Hello! I was put on Lyrica to help with nerve pain and depression. What I did was taper off of it and had no side effects at all.
I started taking one every other day for a week, then 1 every 2 days for a week, then so on until you are tapered off. This is just my experience. Hope that helps.
