Re: Lyrica Side Effect Question
Hi. Lyrica is not something you just quit taking. He will need to be weaned off of it if he needs to quit taking it.
It is possible that the meds are effecting his kidneys as that is where many are metablized.
I would call the doctor that prescribed it and follow up with a family doctor and get some bloodwork run. That can help rule out if his kidneys are under stress from medication at least.
then go from there. Has he ever had kidney stones? Then it could be back related. I would call the doctor.
