I never felt any kind of withdrawls from Lyrica, then again, I have had to overcome many, many other withdrawls which would have been much worse, such as Barbituate, Opiate & Benzodiazapams (sp). If you are having withdrawls then it's just best to get over it now, and you probably already know based on your statement about Valium withdrawl, very very dangerous. Somehow, I just don't think that a Lyrica withdrawl would be very dangerous, but then again, I'm not a doctor.
Good Luck, and may God Be With You!
I was on lyrica for a few months, but since I didn't notice that they did anything for me, I was taken off of them. I didn't experience any sort of wd symptoms, but I wasnt on them all that long. I was also on percocets so that may have something to do with not experiencing the w/d symtoms. Sorry to not be of much help.
I take 75mg when needed for RLS and neuropothy, and it lays me out! I mean, a full on sleep. I was prescribed 75mg twice a day, but just couldnt take it and even come close to functioning. I keep it around now to help with W/D's and use it when i get spastic pain in my feet. It works great for that. Im sorry, but I dont get w/d from Lyrica and cant really help you with kinda dose. Im a big guy too, 6'2" and 220 pounds and that stuff layes me out! I can only handle one pill (75mg) at bed time when needed.
Best to you,
Hey - thanks for starting this thread and thanks to Dez ----- I am off the Oxy for a month and am needing something for pain -- I am really trying to consider Lyrica -- just don't want another addiction -- so, I appreciate any comments from my fellow forum mates. All the best.
