I have been on Lyrica now for little more than a year. I too have experienced some swelling in my hands and feet, but the relief from pain, and the fact it does not make me as drowsy and the alternative, I love it. I have not had the severity of side effects that most post I have read do, but I think the benefit much outweighs the side effects I have experienced.

That being said, when my doctor first told me about Lyrica ... Show Full Comment

I have neuropathy and also fibro as many others on here have. Unlike many who have posted, I am not swelling nor am I gaining weight. I had reduced my calories down quite a bit to 1250 a day and perhaps this is why. In the past when I have done this as I have a few others post, I had slept walk and ate. But, not with this thus far. This med was given to me for the fibro, and not the neuropath ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Many of the other reports here, say exactly the same thing I will. I have Fibromyalgia and I thought I had finally found the answer with the combination of Provigil 100mg, WelButron 300mg and the lastly added Lyrica 300mg. I have been on the Lyrica for about 8 months now. The symptoms of Fibromyalgia are about 75-90% Less it is Awesome. I have felt like getting dressed, going out, exercising. I ... Show Full Comment
