Comment:
Post discectomy (l4-l5) nerve pain, spasms had me sleeping, half-sitting, on the couch. The pain and discomfort became unbearable. My neurosurgeon prescribed Lyrica. After 3 months, I am still not sleeping, as the Lyrica has only atenuated one layer of the pain. I've experienced substantial weight gain, serious short term memory loss and drastic vision changes.

Comment:
I have FMS, OA, RA and neuropathic pain. Family saw TV commercial and wanted me to try it. Doc prescribed, took it 3 or 4 days, stopped because of severe irritability, mood swings, depression but tried again 1 yr later b/c of family's disappointment. Same reaction only this time family asked me to flush it! Not for me. Also, no change in pain level after those side effects.
