I have been on lyrica for 8 days now--kinda numbing, and today the pain is as bad as ever. I feel really relaxed and kinda don't care about the pain, but it is surely still there. Here's my dilemma: my doc says I can still have my one glass of red wine per day--about 8 ounces--even while on lyrica. I take 75 mg at about 8:00 am, drink my wine about 6 pm, and have my evening 75 mg lyrica around 9 pm. Problem is, the bottle of the new script i picked up tonight has one of those little pink stickers that says "alcohol may intensify effect" and another pink sticker that says "do not drink alcohol on this drug." I drink the wine because it relaxes me. My doc previously said the wine would just make the sedative effect of lyrica stronger. I've had a glass the last few nights and it's been no problem, but now that the pharmacy warning says "do not--underlined do not--drink alcohol with this drug", I'm concerned. I really love my evening wine, but I really don't want to end up like "karen ann quinlan" who actually drank a glass of wine on top of her anti-seizure drug and slipped into a permanent coma--her's was the first major "right to life" battle in the 80s when her parents wanted to take her off life support. Husband says the sticker is just to "cover the co.'s butt," but i'm not sure. What would you do?
