Chocolate: my intro - to wanting to liquid taper off Lyrica

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Looking to do a liquid taper off my Lyrica. I take 300mg twice daily. Been on it over 10yrs. Need help figuring out how much water to put in for one dose and how much water with the Lyrica to swallow.

Welcome to SA, Chocolate.

 

To give members the best information, we ask them to summarize their medication history in a signature -- drugs, doses, dates, and discontinuations & reinstatements, in the last 12-24 months particularly.  This will appear beneath all your posts and is very helpful to the staff.

 

Account Settings – Create or Edit a signature.

 

We recommend tapering by no more than 10% of your current dose every four weeks.

 

Why taper by 10% of my dosage?

 

This link is specifically about tapering Lyrica, including how to make your own liquid Lyrica.

 

Tips for tapering off Lyrica (pregabalin)

 

If after reading the link you have further questions about liquid Lyrica, let me know and I'll alert other moderators expert in this area.

 

e don't recommend a lot of supplements on SA, as many members report being sensitive to them due to our over-reactive nervous systems, but two supplements that we do recommend are magnesium and omega 3 (fish oil). Many people find these to be calming to the nervous system. 

 

 

 

Add in one at a time and at a low dose in case you do experience problems. Get supplements that ae single ingredient (not mixed with other types of supplements).

 

This is your Introduction topic, where you can complete your drug signature, questions and connect with other members.  We're glad you found your way here.
