i am taking Lycia 75 twice a day.  I am going off it because of side effects. Can I take pain pill while taking Lycia?  

Also not sure but going off lycia I take one pill for two weeks then stop?  I forgot what the doctor(pain management ) how they told me to do it?  Any help possible.

    I had to go off Lyrica because it made me feel like I was having a out of body experience. Really freaky feeling and I didn't like that, even on the lowest dose. I was taking pain pills at the time, but best to check with your doctor.

    Hi

    You really need to speak to your doctor, they won't mind explaining it, don't stop taking it until you speak to them, just ring and ask for a doctor to ring you back,  they might then ask you to go in or just give you advice over the phone, sorry can't be more help.

    You have to wean off. I would call your pharmacist! I THINK it is like one pill for a week. Then one pill every 2 days for a week. But it's best to find out from  pro.

    Neurontin is an alternative to people who can't take Lyrica. Then you would just jump from one med to the other.

    Pain pills don't work any better than Tylenol for most fibro cases...unless you have some type of injury that us exaggerated by fibro. But even then, not near as much and side effects are bad. But yes, you can take them together.

    So sorry my computer is having a mind of its own and I can't erase the messages maybe someone can. I didn't even get to type! I just wanted to say I started Neurontin and that was taking the place of Lyrica. Good Luck to you!
