also one scary thing is im having trouble speaking , getting my words out , found out this is a side effect from Pregabalin , anyone know how long this lasts ?
CHESTNUT; yes the brand name is Lyrica and it is used for several things mostly depression and pain from nerves. And yes when you first start this medication it is very common to get some side effects like you are saying as this medication builds up in your system. which is about 7 to 14 days this is all normal than these side effects go away normally in that time and you continue to take the medication and your symptoms get better and what they are treating you for well hopefully get better the longer your on it. Take it only as directed and about the same time each day. Things should get better for you after the side effect period goes away. But it does take 6 to 8 weeks to reach a full blood level. But even before that you should start to feel something better one of the problems with these medications like this is they don't tell you enough when you get it from the doctor because sometimes the symptoms you are working on getting rid of even get worse for the first 2 weeks your doing just fine try and stick with it. And it well get better.
