Peeples I cannot tolerate hardly any medications. I tried several statin medications for high cholesterol and I thought I was losing my mind. The last time I tried a new statin, I was in such a horrible mental state, I decided to stop. NO KIDDING, at 9 p.m. that night I actually FELT the medication wear off, and I was a NEW person! NEVER AGAIN.
IF I were you I would totally stop the Lyrica, but that is just me.
I would rather FEEL good mentally than try to ride out the side effects.
I cannot tolerate antihistamines (keep me awake and I feel nervous); narcotics turn me into a zombie and I can't function; the only thing I take for pain is Advil.
My mental health is paramount to ANY prescription drugs. I only take Prilosec for GED and blood pressure medication - one to prevent Barrett's Esophagus and one to prevent chance of stroke.
I want my quality of life which includes getting a good nights sleep and not taking ANY prescription meds except for the ones I just mentioned.
You have a family and commitments. LIVE YOUR LIFE. I have a friend who has fibro and she only takes Advil. She could not tolerate anything else. She is living her life.
Hope this helps. Blessings, Sparklea (All this is just my opinion)
