    Early onset degenerative disc disease, started in C-Spine- numbness then pain. Went from Vicodin & diazepam to Methodone and soma. Then to Gabapenten and Flexeril, this medication takes longer to kick in, but doesn't alter my personality as severly as the narcotics did. In exchange for the pain, liver and mental decline, apathy and weight gain is a price worth paying. I wish I had been sta ... Show Full Comment

    I am taking 75 mg once a day, a couple of hours before bedtime, for nerve pain caused by bunion surgery. I am also using a cream made by a compounding pharmacy. Along with the Lyrica these these have helped with the constant tightness and nerve pain in my foot. I started with 50 mg and increased to 75 mg. I had very vivid dreams for a few weeks and drowsiness, but now don't have many side e ... Show Full Comment

    I was in constant pain from Periferal Neuropathy. Could only walk for 7 minutes before I had to sit down because of extreme pain. Started with 25mg 3 x per day, moved up to 50 mg 3 x per day and am now at 100 mg 3 x per day. Results dramatic! Now walk a mile and a half 6 days a week with minimal pain. Sit down at the 3/4 mile mark, not for pain but just for a break. No side effects. Lyrica ... Show Full Comment

    I started with 25 mg 2 times a day for a few days 2 weeks ago to get used to it because of the side effects. I am taking 3 times a day now after 2 weeks with not much change in pain in my back during the day. I sleep o.k with no pain. Will ask my doctor if I should increase the dose, I am afraid of secondary effets. A little dizzy if I take 2X25 mg but constipation is a problem & I don' ... Show Full Comment
