I was prescribed Lyrica 75 mgs. twice a day for diabetic neuropathy in my feet and hands also. Since I started taking Lyrica, 2 months ago, I have been in the ER twice with exacerbation of COPD. Before Lyrica, I was just using an inhaler once daily. Now I use a Combivent inhaler EVERY 5-6 hours with nebulizer treatments 4-5 times a week!
Talk to your doctor concerning the Lyrica. I suggest you take magnesium supplements for your diabetic neuropathy. This supplement is good for the nerves and can also help with copd. Women can take 250 to 300 mg. daily. Men can take 300 to 350 daily. Cut the table in half. Take half in the morning and half at night. This supplement is specifically for the nerves and muscles. I hope you feel better soon!
