As some of you know, I started on pregabalin (lyrica) earlier this month. I began on 75mg, then 100mg and I am slowly adding another 25mg to get to the maximum dose of 150mg, which my GP has said I should aim for.
I did take an extra 25mg last night and did feel a bit woozy…still do a bit, so i think I should take it more slowly.
I have mentioned to my GP that I would like to wean off some other meds, due to my liver test being a concern.
I`m thinking of trying to come off baclofen, quinine and oxybutynin.
ve got use to the pregabalin, Ill work on the weaning. I
ll do it carefully, with my GPs agreement…one med at a time over 2/3 weeks.
I see my urologsist on Wed this week. I am going to talk to him about coming off oxybutynin and maybe have botox into my bladder, as I do have spasms in it when emptying my bowels and when turning over in bed or being turned wehn being dressed. They can be quite strong and uncomfortable.
Has anyone weaned off the same meds and how was it?
