Hey what’s up, this is Matt Finch from Opioidaddictionsupport.com bringing you a very fascinating opioid withdrawal remedy called Lyrica.
In this video, I’m going to teach you exactly how to use Lyrica for opiate withdrawal symptoms, how to feel better and more comfortable, and how to do it fast.
So let’s talk about this stuff…
Lyrica is a super powerful withdrawal remedy.
In this video, I’m going to teach you about the Lyrica overview, why Lyrica lessens the opioid withdrawal symptoms, how to use Lyrica for opiate withdrawal, and more.
So I got to do a disclaimer first though. Something called Biochemical Individuality means that every human has a unique biochemical profile, and that means that there’s no one single medication for opioid withdrawal that is going to work the same for everyone.
So Lyrica does work extremely well for a high percentage of people, but due to Biochemical Individuality, due to that phenomenon, that scientific fact, it’s not going to work perfect for everyone.
And as well as that, for some people, it may work very well but it could cause some really unpleasant and major side effects.
So thus although Lyrica is super powerful, it is going to have different results with different people.
Okay, so now that we’ve talked about that, let’s get into how this amazing withdrawal remedy can help.
Let’s talk about the Lyrica overview first. So the generic drug is called pregabalin and the brand name for that is Lyrica.
It’s primarily used to treat seizures and neuropathic pain.
It’s also used for Generalized Anxiety, other types of anxiety, insomnia, Restless Leg Syndrome, and the mania part of Bipolar Disorder.
So Lyrica is a gabapentinoid and it acts by inhibiting certain calcium channels.
So there’s many possible mechanisms of action but the doctors aren’t absolutely sure exactly why it helps so much, but I know why it works so well for withdrawal… because I’ve seen it time and time again have incredible, just amazing results.
So let’s get into how I discovered all this stuff.
My Research on Gabapentin
So years ago I wrote an article called How To Use Gabapentin For Opiate Withdrawal. There was some studies that showed that this medicine was significantly effective for opiate withdrawal, and so I wrote an article on it.
There’s multiple studies confirming that it could be beneficial.
Then success stories started popping up in the comment section and so many people were saying that it was basically the “cure for their opioid withdrawal symptoms.”
So I did even more research and then I figured out why it helps with opioid withdrawal.
A while after that I published a YouTube video on gabapentin saying how awesome it is… and oh my gosh oh my gosh if you look at the comment section of that gabapentin video, there are so many people saying that it’s either a miracle or it works really well.
Some people say it just works kind of well for them and there are some people that say gabapentin was horrible.
So why do all those people have those different experiences?
Well, it comes back to that Biochemical Individuality phenomenon.
We’re all different, so different medicines are going to have different effects for different people.
But Lyrica, for most people, is even better than gabapentin, and I’m going to tell you why in a few minutes.
But first, we’re going to talk about the science of the opioid withdrawal syndrome.
The Opioid Withdrawal Syndrome
So Lyrica and gabapentin both quiet down the fight-or-flight syndrome.
Here’s how it works:
When you go through acute opioid withdrawal, that causes your central nervous system to go into haywire.
All of a sudden there’s this rebound effect from the central nervous system.
Normally opioids depress the central nervous system.
So after you’re dependent on them and then you go through a cold-turkey withdrawal, instead of your central nervous system going back to baseline, it goes crazy and rebounds in the opposite direction.
That causes the fight-or-flight syndrome to get activated to the millionth power and there’s a cascade of stress hormones, so norepinephrine and epinephrine (also known as noradrenaline and adrenaline) as well as cortisol, all get totally activated and you are going absolutely crazy with anxiety, insomnia, total mind-and-body restlessness.
So the locus coeruleus is the principal site in the brain for the synthesis of this fight or flight syndrome, but Lyrica and gabapentin, these are medicines that can calm down and quiet that part of the brain.
So that’s how it works for withdrawal… it quiets that part of the brain, and it lessens or completely reverses the fight-or-flight response to baseline and you have just a normal central nervous system that is not excited anymore.
So most opioid withdrawal remedies treat the symptoms of withdrawal, symptoms like some remedies treat the anxiety, other remedies lower your blood pressure, other remedies can help you sleep, but it seems with most people in most cases not everybody, not everyone, but in many cases Lyrica and gabapentin shut down the entire opioid withdrawal syndrome.
I can’t even tell you how many people I have heard from that say they have used either one of these medicines and in the right dosages for their opioid dependence, even people with severe opioid dependences, they said that these medicines were able to help them not experience opioid withdrawal.
It is absolutely fascinating how these gabapentinoid medicines work.
Why Lyrica is Better Than Gabapentin
Okay, so now we’re going to talk about why Lyrica is better than gabapentin. it’s basically a very simple concept so they both work in the same way, but Lyrica came out after gabapentin so it’s actually stronger, but that’s not exactly why it’s better because it may be stronger but you could just use more gabapentin to get the same desired effects.
But Lyrica not only is it a lot stronger, but it also has a much higher bioavailability.
Due to the mechanisms of action, you actually absorb more of the Lyrica and use more of the medicine, so it’s stronger and your body absorbs more of it, so it’s actually even more helpful for opioid withdrawal symptoms for most people.
All right, so now let’s get to the Lyrica dosages. I’m sure you’re getting excited by now and oh my gosh “how do I use this stuff?”
So I’m going to teach you now, you’re going to learn how to stop opioid withdrawal symptoms like a total boss.
Let’s get into it!
So here is how to feel better going through an acute opioid withdrawal.
So with the Lyrica take anywhere from 50 to 200 milligrams 2 to 3 times a day, so the maximum daily dosage is 600 milligrams.
Some people going through severe opioid withdrawal they do take more than that and they don’t OD because their central nervous system is going so haywire, but start off with 50 milligrams, wait 90 minutes, and if you need to take more you can take up to 150 milligrams more during acute opioid withdrawal for maximum, again of 200 milligrams three times a day.
Lyrica can be used for up to about 14 to 21 days before you’re going to get a physiological dependence on it.
That means that you can use it for around that time frame without your body getting addicted to it.
So when you stop using Lyrica for opiate withdrawal symptoms you’re not going to have Lyrica withdrawal symptoms.
But if you use it too long — especially four weeks and longer — then you can absolutely get your body addicted to Lyrica, and then when you come off you’re going to have a cold-turkey withdrawal syndrome from Lyrica, and that can be even worse than opioid withdrawal, so be very careful.
Again this is just an informational/educational video.
It’s not like a medical recommendation.
I’m not a doctor, so this is just information and I’m giving this info then what you can do is go to your doctor, ask them about Lyrica, see if it’s right for you and ask them to prescribe it for you and tell you how to take it.
So it’s often strong enough by itself, but for severe cases of opioid withdrawal, other meds and/or supplements will be needed to feel comfortable.
