I have taken this medication for about 13 months. I have Spinal Cord damage from a back injury. It has allowed me to continue a semi normal life.

Comment:
I feel wonderful. The pain never stopped and was miserable never being able to escape it. Lyrica unbelievably has taken it away. I feel I maybe 5% impairment in mental functioning, however. It is certainly worth this minimal side effect. First day or two I was off balance. First week or two sleepy. First month of two increased appetite.
