I have been taking pregabalin for a while now went from 75 mgs 2 times a day to 150 mg 2 times a day. The other day I just happened to look up pregabalin and it is lyrica. I also found out that it makes platelet count go down. Why in the H---"s name would my Doctor put me on this medication. I may have nerve damage so she put me on this medication. When I called the Pharmacist she said it was ok to take. Well oral pregabalin is a problem for it states one of the problems of taking this medication is that if you have ITP it can be dangerous and to use with caution.
Well it is also a drug that you can not get off of just like that so now I am weaning myself off of it and I have an MRI in April so I hope to never see this drug again.
