Lyrica

Lyrica

I have been placed on Lyrica for neurological reasons other than seizures. I noticed my back pain has diminished a bit. My neuropathy hasn't bothered me as much too which can be a problem. I read the side effects and haven't experienced most. Could this diminished feeling of pain cause a problem being I am diabetic? I don't take any meds for diabetes (diet-controlled) and on the lowest doses of my blood pressure meds. Could Lyrics cause a problem for me?

Has Anyonre Tried The Combination Of Cabatrol + Briviact

Has Anyonre Tried The Combination Of Cabatrol + Briviact

Hello, Friends.

I have tried the combination Briviat with Carbatrol before, along with Lyrica and Topamax. Once I start with Briviact, I will so much better than I don't even consider it a seizure, than after a week or so, I start to experience more seizures than usual.

Currently, I am taking Carbatrol + Fycompa + Lyrica. I have been thinking to re-take Briviact again. I know there is an interaction between Briviact and Tegretol, but I'm wondering if anyone has tried/ trying this combination… read more

Medication could have been working to control seizures- so instead
