Clarification: Neurontin does not interact with most drugs and will not affect your Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). Since it has a short duration of action, cannot be taken once daily but needs thrice daily dosing. A gabapentin preparation, Gralise, however, can be taken once daily at night. ...Read more

What do you mean by: safely ? There have not been any drug-drug interaction studies with Linzess as yet. There is a risk of serotonergic syndrome with combining guaifenesin, phenylnephrine, Cymbalta (duloxetine) and Vyvance. Ambien is for occasional use. I would not combine it with Valium.

See below: Depakene (valproic acid) or Depakote and Lyrica (pregabalin) are both antiseizure medications. They have a different mechanism of action but both can work to calm down overactive nerves in both the brain, spinal cord and the nerves outside of the spinal cord. Both can be used for pain conditions that are caused by overactive or damaged nerves. We often use more than one together because they work differently. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 1 year ago.I tookeffexor 75 &lyrica (pregabalin) 75 one pill a day& i felt better.Now i stopped takin lyrica (pregabalin) but I am feelin pain?

Get back on Lyrica (pregabalin).: Lyrica (pregabalin) has been shown to be effective in treating fibromyalgia pain, but usual doses are 150 mg. Three times a day. Effexor is not shown to be effective but may improve your mood. Usual doses are around 300 mg. A day. It is pretty certain that 75 mg of Effexor will not be helpful for fibromyalgia pain. You must continue to take the Lyrica (pregabalin) to get benefit. ...Read more

Integrative approach: There are many pharmacological options for fibromyalgia but an integrative approach will be better long term. Integrative approach will address your lifestyle, nutrition, sleep and stressors of life. Incorporating an active lifestyle combined with healthy diet, mind and body therapy and lowest possible doses of medication is the way to go. Of course you need to work closely with a rheumatologist. ...Read more

Is there a pill that can help with my neuropathy and anxiety at the same time. I've tried Neurontin and lyrica (pregabalin) didn't help?

It depends: It depends on what's causing your neuropathy. Sometimes older medications called "tricyclic antidepressants" can help both anxiety and neuropathy. New medications such as duloxitine and venlafaxine can also help. Finally, don't overlook behavioral techniques such as visualization exercises which can decrease pain sensitivity and also help anxiety. Hope this answer helps. ...Read more

I have MS & taking tecfidera 240mg one pill twice daily lyrica (pregabalin) 50 mg prn Motrin 800mg prn. sometimes have excruciating stomach pain. What should I do?

Stomach pain source: Process of elimination with meds. Motrin can contribute to bad stomach pain. When do you notice this pain? Do a pain diary focused around when you take your meds and how soon after you notice stomach symptoms.
