new meds
my dr gave me new scripts for lyrica 75mg and voltaren gel. has anybody had any adverse reactions to either of these? he gave them to me because of the nerve pain in my foot. thanks.
Hi BG,

I take Lyrica with no problems and it helps me immensely ...but I know many others on here who cannot take it because of an array of not so good side effects.
I have no experience with the gel.
All I can say is give it a try, but watch for side effects and alert MD asap if it happens to you.
Take care & Good luck w/ the meds. LillySmile
Injured worker, & tired of it all! I'm too old for games!!

A careless word may kindle strife, a cruel word may wreck a life, a timely word may level stress, and a loving word may heal and bless!
buildergirl..I have used Volteran on my foot and ankle and it helped. I can't take Lyrica but Neurontin has helped the nerve pain in my toes especially. Same type of drug. Best of luck.

I took lyrica and lost my sight for three months. If you vision starts to blurr call the doctor and stop the med. As for the cream have not tried it.
May God send his angels to hold you in his arms
What was the gel that Sweets Dr gave her for pain?. She said it was new. I wonder if it is the same......
Voltaren Gel is the first prescription topical treatment for osteoarthritis that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Voltaren Gel -- a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug or NSAID -- in topical form, will mostly be used on knees and hands. Voltaren Gel delivers effective pain relief and has a favorable safety profile. The systemic absorption of Voltaren Gel (1 percent diclofenac sodium in topical gel formulation) is 94 percent less than oral diclofenac (generic for Voltaren).

I have not taken either meds.
