What causes stomach pain and loose stool while on Lyrica?
Its fine to continue it.
Thank you for the query.
Stomach pain and loose stools can happen after Lyrica, however are not very common. So it would be good to rule out other possible reasons of such symptoms.
If the pain is in the upper middle abdomen, peptic ulcer should be ruled out.
Loose stools can appear due to bacterial infection or in rare cases due to partial bowels obstruction. And as every person over 50 should have colonoscopy every 10 years, this test seems advisable, as well as gastroscopy and stool tests.
You may try to continue with this medicine. If the symptoms will appear again, please consider having this tests done.
Hope this helps. Feel free to ask further questions.
