Re: How long does it take for Lyrica to start working?

One thing i know for sure is before i went cold turkey from ropinirole for 4 weeks.. the measly .25 mg i am taking now wouldn't of had any affect on my symtoms at all. The only thing i have added since before is 100mg lyrica. I suppose there is the possibility it is doing more than i realize. It's t...

Re: How long does it take for Lyrica to start working?

That sounds like a good plan. I had my iron checked and it was over 200. So maybe i don't need to be as worried about raising it a little. I'm not positive that i actually ever augmented. Maybe i just built up a tolerance to ripinirole and my symptoms are just worsening because of age. How can one b...

Re: How long does it take for Lyrica to start working?

I just don't think it's gona work for me. I raised the dose to 150 mg. last night and it made no noticeable difference in my symptoms. But it did put me to sleep after i got up and took hydrocodone to calm my arms down.(yes i'm weird. It's always in my arms while laying down. Just like with you Ann....

Re: How long does it take for Lyrica to start working?

Has anyone had issues with developing a tolerance quickly with lyrica or gabapentin? My dr gave me 50mg dose of lyrica. The first couple times i took it..it seemed to help make me sleepy. Then it just stopped working so i increased it to taking 2 capsules. Again..it worked a couple times and stopped...

Re: How long does it take for Lyrica to start working?

I''m in Illinois. Its a little ways to Colorado. But not too bad. Some people think Illinois is close to legalizing it for recreational use. Hope so. I'd much rather use the edibles. Its hard to get the correct dose smoking it. If i don't get enough.. it does nothing. If i get too much it keeps me a...

Re: How long does it take for Lyrica to start working?

Yea..i'm gona wait one more week to add it back at a small dose. Hopefully it works and i can get off hydrocodone and THC. I don't qualify in my state for MMJ. So i have to get it the old fashioned way. Which i don't really care to do after getting permanent lung damage from a respiratory infection ...

Re: How long does it take for Lyrica to start working?

It seems Lyrica starts having an effect on rls symtoms rather quickly. I took 50 mg last night and i could tell when it started working. Made me feel kinda drugged but it helped calm my legs and arms. I still can't seem to be able to get to sleep without adding at least 50mg tramadol, 7.5 mg of hydr...

Re: How long does it take for Lyrica to start working?

Makes sense. I had to pressure him to give me Lyrica to try. So i will give it a good try before i ask him to switch back to Gabapentin. I took one 25mg capsule last night and it did nothing. So i took another and it seemed to help. So(fingers crossed) maybe its going to do some good. He told me tha...

Re: How long does it take for Lyrica to start working?

Wow..i had no clue you could take that high a dose. Obviously my Dr didn't either. He only gave me 25mg. of Lyrica.

Re: How long does it take for Lyrica to start working?

The first time i took Gabapentin i felt horrible,so i stopped taking it. But i got so desperate when i went cold turkey off ropinirole i decided to give it another try. The 100 mg. capsules had no effect so i tried 200. Still no effect. Maybe i should try a higher dose?

How long does it take for Lyrica to start working?

I have been trying Gabapentin for a couple weeks and can't tell any difference so i talked my Dr into giving me Lyrica to try. Well the nurse gave me a coupon for a free 7 day supply and i thought i would just try it for 7 days and see if it works. But when i went to the pharmacy to get it the pharm...
