... she became restless and may even want to go naked. This reduction was upon the instruction of the doctor.
Hi sdorh, I have been on Lyrica 150mg a day for a long time & never experienced being restless or wanting to go naked! If anything, Lyrica (pregabalin) relaxes me & makes me tired. I see a Rheumatologist every 6 month! It can cause blurry vision, weight gain & brain fog. Hope this answers your question!
Take care & be well
Hi sdorh. I believe it! ‘Withdrawals’ from this drug can cause many symptoms; especially when going down in the dosage as fast as your wife did. I’m surprised that that’s all she’s going through. Most doctors do not understand that Cymbalta (and other drugs like it) have to be tapered off slowly. I feel horrible for you and your wife for having to go through this nightmare. I have been tapering off Cymbalta since June of last year. I’m down from 60 mg to 10 mg and the withdrawals have been minimum. I’ve tapered by 10% of my last dosage taken every 10-14 days. This way our bodies and brain have a chance to stabilize before tapering again. If you would like to know how I’ve done this just let me know and I will explain it to you. Thousands of people all over the world are doing it this way and it works. Take care and I wish you and your wife all the best. Cindy
