Lyrica

Lyrica

Is anyone taking, or have taken, Lyrica? I started taking it for back and neck pain. Very tiring!

I've taken Lyrica for about 20 years now for neuropathic pain in my legs and feet. It's the only medication that's worked for me. On maximum dose allowed. Tried to reduce it, as suggested by doctor, and neuropathic pain came right back. I've never had side effects of any kind. But everybody's different.

Hope that helps. J.

It works well for my daughter, but it scrambled my brain. I just couldn't tolerate it or generic gabapentin.

It seems like all of the drugs that help have terrible side effects and/or withdrawal symptoms. I guess it's what we are willing to do to have some painfree days. Thanks for all of the info everyone. I am now up to 2xs/day/75mgs ea/. It is helping. I am retired so I can take it at 3pm and 12am. My choice. I'm tired by the end of the day anyway and I get up at night. I'm still having side effects, but not all day. I guess I will see how it goes!
