Lyrica-the perfect social lubricant!

Posted by IAMtheWalrus on May 19, 2008, at 13:58:02

Lyrica..high dose 700mgs a day makes me feel sooo good, kinda like a 3 beer buzz. The only prob is that you develop tolerance to it so i have to stop and start it over frequently to get the affect. Today it is working beautiful..i feel awesome..kinda euphoric.

How long did it take you to build a tolerance? Did you take the 700 mg in one dose? Did you gain any weight on lyrica?

Yeah, i take all 700 mgs. at once. Unfortuntely tolerance develops in about 3 days for me...but at least it's 3 days of feeling great! Yes, it does kinda of give me the munchies.

Lyrica sounds the same as it's little sister neurontin. Actually a better feeling than booze. But three days and the rides over.Was hoping lyrica gave a litte longer ride (deep sigh). Actually when it works that's the way I would like to feel all the time.

How long do you have to stay off lyrica before the good feeling returns?

Yes could be..sometimes after stopping neurontin after only three days the next couple days are very difficult.

I totally agree..it feels great, but it doesn't last. I usually have to go off it for about a week to get back the affect.

I find it very stronger than neurontin..was on neurontin before and didn't get the 'buzz' from it. Lyrica, when it works, ROCKS!!

I take it back, it's not perfect because tolerance builds too quickly.

Three days and tolerance builds in for mood elevation is not ideal. That's just not good as an ad but more similar to how street drugs work. Creates a roller coaster effect.

That was my experience with neurontin...Felt good for three days and than felt really crappy for a while when I came off. Guess it's not worth the tradeoff.

I agree...but i still have to take a minimum of 200mgs. of lyrica daily to combat diabetic neuropathy in my legs/feet.

I see that you compare the effects of Lyrica with alchohol and this made me wonder if they share any pharmacological properties..
