Cymbalta (duloxetine): Cymbalta is a good option for neuropathy because it works on the peripheral nerves by a different pathway than Lyrica (pregabalin) or Neurontin (gabapentin). Cymbalta should be started at a low dose at bedtime and gradually increased over several weeks to avoid the side effects and to determine the effectiveness on the treatment of the neuropathy.

How does lyrica (pregabalin) work regarding nerve pain? I get burning sensations in my shins and feet.

Not well-known: The mechanisms of Lyrica (pregabalin) is not well defined. Although Lyrica (pregabalin) is related to the inhibitory amino acid, gaba, it does not directly affect GABA or benzodiazepine receptors. Studies have suggested that the therapeutic effect is achieved by selectively binding to voltage-gated calcium channels and blocking the release of calcium, thereby inhibiting the presynaptic release of pain neurotransmitters.

56 year-old woman notices radicular pain after taking vitamin B6 supplement for three years.....?

56 year-old woman notices radicular pain after taking vitamin B6 supplement for three years.....?

B6 toxicity is well recognized: There are a few questions that need to be asked in this case. Exactly how much B6 was the patient taking? According to recommended standards 200mg daily is the limit. Toxicity is thought to occur at levels of 1000mg. Daily and above though much lower have been reported on rare occasions (100-300mg). Secondly, what exactly was the quality of her pain? Described symptoms of neural toxicity involves sensory neuropathy described mainly as burning dysesthesias and numbness. The case talks about a RADICULOPATHY. That is typically not the same type of pain as we find in chemical toxicities. Pain in the feet could very well be dysesthesias but the history could be a bit more specific there in order to attach more positive points for B6 sequelae. Http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih.

Does lyrica (pregabalin) help with muscle pain aswell as nerve pain?

Does lyrica (pregabalin) help with muscle pain aswell as nerve pain?

Yes and no: Traditionally, lyrica (pregabalin) helps primarily for neuropathic pain and so was used for conditions such as diabetic neuropathy. But lyrica (pregabalin) has now been approved for fibromyalgia, which is characterized by pain coming firm the muscles, facia, and other superficial soft tissues.

Additional Rx: Effexor, (venlafaxine) tricyclic antidepressants, ssnri's, local Lidoderm patch, a Butrans patch, all have some chance of success. However, if you possess an underlying small fibre neuropathy, or a large fibre neuropathy caused by autoimmune mechanisms, infusions of ivig may be amazingly helpful. Lastly, a medical food metanx is also of value.

What other drugs are available for nerve pain if Gabapentin, Lyrica (pregabalin) and Cymbalta don't work?

Think beyond drugs: Medications are one way of controlling nerve pain. Pain is a complex holistic process. You may be able to decrease need for meds by addressing other issues. That includes nutrient status, stress or emotional trauma that may have accompanied or pre-dated the injury, and movement and use of the limb. It's a complex topic. You might look for a doc who does integrative or functional medicine.

Have taken lyrica (pregabalin) for 6 years for nerve pain. About to have gastric bypass and worried about whether i'll be able to continue with lyrica (pregabalin) afterwards.

You certainly Can: The other thing to consider is that some of your weight may be due to the lyrica (pregabalin). If you go through the trouble of the bypass restarting the Lyrica (pregabalin) could put you back on the road to obesity. I would approach it with caution after the bypass, if you need it for pain control you'll have to take the Lyrica (pregabalin) but beware of the side effects.

Taking 100 lyrica (pregabalin) for peripheral nerve pain. Heartburn really bad. Ok to keep glugging antiacid? Neurontin did same.

Taking 100 lyrica (pregabalin) for peripheral nerve pain. Heartburn really bad. Ok to keep glugging antiacid? Neurontin did same.

No. Call doctor: Neurontin (gabapentin) is indeed an excellent treatment for peripheral nerve pain. In my practice, it does not cause heartburn. You need to get that checked out promptly. You may have an ulcer, which could worsen. Taking antacids without medical supervision could cause its own set of complications, including decreased absorption of medications. Call your treating physician and get checked.
