How long does it take for the side effects of lyrica (pregabalin) and zolpidem go away? I feel sedated + dificult the breath when waking up meds for 16d

How long does it take for the side effects of lyrica (pregabalin) and zolpidem go away? I feel sedated + dificult the breath when waking up meds for 16d

Meds go away: It could take a couple of days for the effects of these medications to leave your system.

With that being said it is unlikely that these two medications would be causing you sedation and breathing problems 16 days later.

I would recommend that you follow-up with your prescribing physician on this issue. It is likely that something else is going on. ...Read more

Even: Even if your symptoms may be related to a medication reaction and you have stopped the medicine, these are very serious side effects. I will list some of the symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack. Please call 911 or get to an er now, so that your cardiac status can be checked. Take care. ...Read more

Prescribed Zoloft (sertraline) (25mg) for anxiety/panic. Took first dose tonight. Terrified of side effects. Feeling short of breath. Looking for reassurance/hope?

Persevere.....: A common side effect of some ssris like zoloft (sertraline) is jitteriness especially on starting the medication. This can seem to worsen symptoms especially in one with anxiety. Talk to your prescribing doctor to see if either a change of medication or a temporary addition of another medication may be needed. If you can manage this side effect, it may get better as time goes. All the best. ...Read more

Adult asthma. On qvar. Mainly short of breath when I walk up stairs, exercise. I do have allergies. Worried about side effects of med.

Not med: If the only time you have shortness of breath is when you walk up a flight of stairs, and not when exercising, and it resolves right away and is not associated with pain or coughing, I would presume you are still out of shape. It certainly is not the med (i was a pharmacist for20 years too), and does not sound like asthma or heart. ...Read more
