Husband had fusion 2 months ago. Dr. put him on Lyrica 1 month ago, 75mg 2x/day. He then upped it to 150mg 2x/day. He stayed on this dose about a week. The side effects were horrible, so we just stopped it cold 5 days ago. Dr said it was ok to do so. Now he has been having very bad withdrawals, suicidal thoughts, extreme anxiety, nausea, headache. Very nasty stuff. Is there anything he can do to ease this? He is so discouraged. We've even thought about taking a small dose of the Lyrica, but that seems like it would just prolong the withdrawal. Any help would be much appreciated.
