My doctor put me on Gabapentin 300mg for nerve and muscle detoration I found it made me to groggy the next day so then he put me on Lyrica 25mg and I am finding no relief at all so I thought maybe mixing the 2 might help ! Please someone who has these issues please help! He found I had hypothyroidism way off the chart do I'm now taking medication for this also ..
Gabapentin and Lyrica are like cousins in the medication department. I was taking Lyrica for many years along with Gabapentin. My neurologist told me to quit taking Lyrica because I didn’t need to take both. He didn’t tell me that I had to taper; but I found out when I joined a group called Lyrica Survivors. I am completely off Lyrica now and I’m tapering off Gabapentin (Cymbalta). I’m over halfway done and I’m getting help and great advice from a group called Cymbalta Hurts Worse. These medications have a horrible effect on your body and your brain! They have taken about ten years of my life away from me and I’m in the process of getting my life back.
