Q. Had FMS for almost twenty years now, tried almost everything. Is Lyrica in the "steroid" family? Any one in this community could help me? I have given my few questions to find out an answer. I Had FMS for almost twenty years now, tried almost everything. I'm considering Lyrica but I'd like more info. Is Lyrica in the "steroid" family? If you go on Lyrica for a while & see no improvement with pain, is going off of it a big deal like with other med's, or can you simply just stop taking it? I take Ambien, will that have any interactions? I'm seeing my Doc about this at the end of the month, but I was hoping to get some personal experiences about it. Thanks for any thoughts! Thanks for your answers, keep them coming! A. according to this-
there is a moderate interaction. that means you can take them both but be checked regularly for depression of breath.
I have been taking hydrocortisone 10 mg for about a month. I got the flu on Sunday, for the 3rd time in 2 months, and stopped taking the hydrocortisone since I was sick. Then I read the label that said you are more prone to fight off infections. So I decided to stay off the hydrocortisone. Now I am still feeling extremely week and fatigued, and have a terrible cough . I am wondering if these are symptoms of not taking the hydrocortisone for 4 days, and if so how long the steroid withdrawal symptoms last. I am wondering if I should go back on the hydrocortisone and wean off or just continue to stay off of it.
