I experienced peripheral vision changes, chest pain, pounding heartbeat, abnormal speech pattern. also, the tendency to gain weight and lose concentration directly interfere with other medications I take. I think the dr. at the pain center should have caught this potential for interference.

During my Kimo therapy , after removal of my cancerous kidney I developed very severe burning pain in my feet, Lyrica helped little, but I still have a problem when I go to work for more than 4 hours, my feet start burning again. On Monday I am going to the Doctor . I will talk to him about that.

After taking Lyrica for several months, I'm about 85% better, which means living a normal life again. No noticeable side effects. Yes, it's expensive, yes it's worth it. I took it at a lower dose (100mg/day) for a few weeks and it didnt work ... Show Full Comment
