Fibromyalgia Sufferers Have Their Candid Say About Lyrica, Cymbalta & Savella.

by Anura Guruge



If you take medication for Fibromyalgia, in particular Lyrica, Cymbalta or Savella, you should do yourself a huge favor and read the above article.

The drugs used to ‘treat’ Fibromyalgia have some scary side effects — including the possibility of some very real, and permanent brain damage!

So, please do read this article and take note. Talk to your doctor(s).

I have covered some of these in my new ‘Central Pain Syndrome: Chronic, Confounding Pain Such As That Of Fibromyalgia‘ book.

What The Lyrica Ad For Fibromyalgia Does Not Mention — Possible Brain Impairment!

by Anura Guruge


This article titled “Neurontin and Lyrica are a Death Sentence for New Brain Synapses” is a GOOD place to start. It also has links to the relevant studies. Click image to access original …


Pfizer that makes billions on Lyrica conveniently omits to mention anything about brain impairment when it comes to the side effects because they were discovered after FDA approval. From: http://www.lyrica.com


I don’t take Lyrica BUT I am very familiar with it.

My latest book will be on ‘Central Pain Syndrome‘ (CPS) and Lyrica is one of the most used drugs to treat CPS.

The generic name for Lyrica is Pregabalin.

IF you are taking Lyrica/Pregabalin you should Google ‘pregabalin synapse’ — where a synapse is a key component of the nervous system. 

This a HEADS UP because many of you may not have realized this.

IF you are taking Lyrica/Pregabalin and feel that your ‘head’ is no longer ‘feeling right’ …. this could be it.

If You Have Fibromyalgia Watch The New TV Commercial For ‘Lyrica’.

Much has changed about the UNDERSTANDING of Fibromyalgia over the last few years.

It is safe to say that Fibromyalgia today is NOT your mother’s Fibromyalgia (75% of those diagnosed with Fibromyalgia being women).

The actual name ‘Fibromyalgia’ is no longer accurate. Fibromyalgia, where ‘algia‘ is Latin for pain means pain to do with fibrous tissue (Fibro) and muscles (myo).

It used to be considered a condition related to rheumatism (or arthritis).

NOT SO ANYMORE.

The ‘American College of Rheumatology’ when talking about the causes of fibromyalgia states: “… it is as though the “volume control” is turned up too high in the brain’s pain processing centers”.

The ‘National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases’ (a member of the U.S. ‘National Institutes of Health’) now says, in the section on ‘causes’: Many researchers are examining other causes, including problems with how the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) processes pain’.

The Lyrica commercial NOW acknowledges this. At the 15 second mark, shown above in the image, it says: “… thought to be the result of overactive nerves”.

BINGO.

At last.

Lyrica, the leading medication used to treat Fibromyalgia finally admitting that Fibromyalgia is a nervous system disorder.

That should help.

The commercial also goes onto say, with more emphasis than ever before, that Lyrica INCREASES DEPRESSION.

Well depression is known to make Fibromyalgia WORSE and that is not anecdotal.

So, if you have Fibromyalgia watch this commercial a FEW times ……
