... Hi There, I too have been classified with RSD from CTS surgery 3 yrs. ago because of a nicked median nerve during surgery. They say it only happens 1x per 1000 ops. I looked into medical negligence but the Drs. from 2 other states say there was not much of a case. Well so much for Drs. opinions. I have been on neurotin at increasing levels I am up to 1800mg a day along with... (9 replies)

... Aloha Lady's! :wave: Was this a side effect of neROTTEN too? :confused: Weight gain. I am glad that it helps with the burning pain, but the wieght gain can cause more depression, lack of self esteem, Is this really the answer?????? I'm still so leary about trying out new drugs. I read in my newsletter that they are testing a new drug for RSD called lenalidomide for pain... (9 replies)
... Hey Aicertapo: So....have you followed the doctor's plan? How is it going with the Lyrica? I think it's actually really helping me. I had the first pain free evening last night in a long time (that's usually my worst time of day, and I always had to go to bed by 9:00 p.m it was so bad). Last night I actually "worked" until 10:45 p.m. - unheard of! (41 replies)
... I don't know a whole lot about Lyrica, except I think it is made by the same people as Neurotin. I was on Neurotion for bipolar disorder for almost 4 years, and found that when I went off of it, i was very shaky for a couple of months. (41 replies)
... I've been taking Lyrica for about a week (75mg twice a day) and have just now gone up to 75 mg three times a day. So far I haven't noticed any obvious side effects, and I think it's helping. Has anyone been using it long-term and found it to be of continued benefit or does side effects overcome the benefits? Linda (41 replies)
... My doctor just prescribed Lyrica for me to treat heavy pain due to Polycystic Kidney Disease ( PKD ) and I am not having too much suceess after about four weeks. Can anyone tell me what dosage thay are taking. I think it might be the low dosage of 75mg per day and they are working me up to a higher dosage. Thanks Rodg. :confused: (41 replies)
... me about the Cymalta. I swear I could be a dr. or a pharmacist, just by reading these labels and side effects. Tee Hee. Anyhow I'm glad you decided to bypass the Lyrica retrial. Once bitten twice shy. ... (27 replies)

... Skooze, Where did you read this information? It appears that many of us, if not all use some form of oxycodone. This kind of makes sense now, I have stopped taking the Lyrica and no more little green men (halucinations,lol) and no more pounding heart, etc... What will they come up with next for us to be guinnea pigs for??? I will probably try it ya never know what will... (27 replies)
... H Claire--I just did some research on this. It says that you should not take this drug if you are taking any narcotics (such as oxycodone) tranquilizers, or mediicine for anxiety. You may have a higher chance for dizziness & sleepiness. Well I just flunked 2 out of 3 on the med test. If you take too much--go to the nearest ER room :eek: I have never seen this on any drug...

... Hi Skooze, The funny thing is I dont have arthritis, never did...I was started on 75 mg twice a day and after a week increased to 150 mg twice a day, I tolerated that for almost 3 weeks before the side affects I previously described showed up. And you are right, unfortunately there is no magic pill out there for us RSDers, however, this seemed to be the most promising... (27 replies)

... drug and they had me on 600 mg. times 5 a day. As most RSD'rs, we are desperate to try anything. I think it's great that you can decrease the Neurontin and take Lyrica at the same time. Almost makes you wonder what they will come up with next. ... (41 replies)
... WOW GUYS & GALS>>What an overwhelming, encouraging, promossing replies to my question on Lyrica! Maybe they should have named the drug Euriika! ;) If it's only been on the market since 9/21 this probably why not all medical professions are on top of it. Hawaii is always the last to get the latest trends etc. I mean after reading Penny's first post, I was so hopeful and after... (41 replies)
