Has anyone been on Lyrica for years and then tried to get off? I take 25mg 4x a day and have for, I think, about 3 yrs. Obviously my neuropathy may come back but I am concerned about seizures, etc. I used to have partial complex seizures but was taking it mainly as an add on to the opiates for control of neuropathy . My doctor does not want me to go off, he said I am not remembering how bad my neuropathy is. I also take other meds for pain, hydrocodone, soma, oyxir, sometimes lorazepam and from time to time, ESI's.
I am trying to take a drug holiday because I am having some health issues that I am questioning where they are coming from so would like to see if I stop all meds, where I stand.
Thanks friends for any experiences you may have had or advice.
All my best, Diandra
