Is urinary incontinence a side effect of using Pregabalin?

There are different dose recommendation for pregabalin (Lyrica) depending on the condition being treated. The highest dose of 200 mg three times daily or a total of 600 mg per day has been FDA approved for patients with fibromyalgia, partial onset seizures, or postherpetic neuralgia (nerve pain from herpes zoster viral infections). Unfortunately, this higher dose is associated with a higher rate of side effects.  Some patients did report urinary incontinence during clinical trials with pregabalin (Lyrica) - although it wasn't a commonly reported side effect.  Hopefully other iGuard members will post additional information about their experiences with urinary incontinence and suicidal thoughts while taking pregabalin (Lyrica).
