6 days ago · Tapering off Lyrica gave me panic, nausea, extreme anxiety in Depression & Anxiety

I’ll be off Lyrica for a year I. Another week. Withdrawal from this horrendous drug did a number on me. It’s worse then heroine withdrawal I’ve been to.d. It put me in a state of severe depression, anxiety, panic and agoraphobia. I ended up in the ER for dehydration and nausea. I wanted to commit suicide all the time, so I knew I needed a therapist, who. I’ve been seeing for a year now. She has helped me so much, even told me they have seen worse off then me coming off this drug. I found that hard to believe since I was so bad off. I don’t want any pharmaceutical drugs anymore. Im Getting better but still suffer with anxiety especially upon awaking. I wish you the best in what you are doing,

Were you on an antibiotic? That’s why they test for C-dif. Every time I ate I went to the bathroom, it got to where I had no idea what to put in my mouth.

Do you know what they are testing for? Mine took almost the; day# before I got results, and I had to keep calling thrm back To see if they had received them ugh I was pissed. And I would call back everyday to see if they have had a cancellation you should no5 have to wait til Feb to be seen. I worked in the medical field for 36 years believe me the office staff can be a pain in the ass if they have an attitude an$ really don’t want to be with people. Don’t let them get the better if you

Oh my I’m sorry this is happening to you. I. Sure you have seen a gastroenterologist? Have they done stool samples? Have you had a colonoscopy or endoscopy done? They need to find where the pain is coming from. Back in December I had seventeen days of diarrhea going like 13 times a day. I went to my gastro doctor who put me on an antibiotic and Flagel to calm my stomach they also did a sample which came back from the lab all normal. Return visit he said I must of had some type of bacteria, but no real diagnosis given. Said if it returned he would do a colonoscopy. So far so good. But you should not have to be in pain like this, it’s not right they need to find the cause. Please keep seeking medical care

They ch3cked with poison control to make sure the taper was correct which itwas but to fast sunc3 I took it for so long. What a nightmar3 I gav3 gone through. I’m ten months off now and I wan no pharmaceutical drugs in m6 system anymore. How this drug messed with my neurotransmitter which can take up to two years to repair itself. I hav3 a great friend whose husband is a doctor who to,d me to us3 as much CBD oil, CBD gummy’s as I need. Also to,d me to get GABA calm whic( you can buy in a health food store and let me tell you they are fantastic, I got the dissolvable ones. I feel so much better an$ i5 helps with h my severe anxiety.

Sun, Jan 13 5:25pm · shingles and neuropathic pain in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I had trigeminal nerve shingles six years ago, I’m luck I’m not blind. I ended up with severe itch, eye, forehead to the town of my head which I still suffer with today, it’s horrible I never get a full nights sleep. I saw neurosurgeons at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, had nerve block done walked out itching my head and crying. So they put me on Lyrica which really did not help bu5 I countinued to take it til 10 months ago when I decided to come off it because I lost six teeth. Now I suffer with severe withdrawal panic, anxiety and agoraphobia. I had to go to a therapist because of suicidal thoughts, but I’m doing much better. I don’t like pharmaceutical drugs anymore, my suggestion for your daughter would be either medical marijuana or maybe CBD oil or CBD gummy’s without THC which you can buy anywhere or order on line. I’ve been using this and it really helps along with the vitamin GABA calm which really has worked numbers. If she chooses to stay in the pharmaceutical drug then I would call the maker and see about getting a coupon to help with the cost. My Lyrica was $300 a month and I got a $30 coupon for a year which saved me a lot of money.

What this doctor said is true, but not for everyone. I can’t use medical marijuana because it does make my panic, anxiety 100 times worse. I’ve tried it several times and each time I was in a fetal position for hours. I do use CBD oil with no THC that you can buy or order and it works great. Even better is the CBD gummy’s

Dec 30, 2018 · CBD oil and depression/anxiety in Depression & Anxiety

Wow Drs are not God and I’ve told several that. I worked in the medical field for 36 years, I’ve seen it all. Believe me I am not afraid to tell them off, or how I feel when they give me an attitude. Just because they have more education then me doesn’t make them any smarter. They out their underwear on the same way I do. I would of let him have it.its hard to have trust in any of them when crap like this happens, and then bringing up the wrong patient to discuss what’s wrong with you is way out of league.dumb dumb dumb
