    This was helpful for neuromas but did not help for other pain from nerve or muscle pain! Side effects: edema, sleep issues, memory

    I have been taking 150 mg 2 times day this for 6 or 8 months. PRO: It helps with the leg pain I have from diabetic neuropathy. CON: I have gained nearly 30 lbs since taking this medicine. And this medicine is expensive even with a great insurance plan.

    I have cervicogenic muscle and nerve pain. 25+ years. Side effects are there but worth it for me. I wasn't sure if this was working so I dropped the dosage and holy crap the pain that came in after only 2 days! This stuff works!

    Within just 3 days of taking Lyrica I was unable to sleep, my boss called my wife and my son had to help convince me into going to the ER. I was yelling at people for no reason at work. I then left the hospital AMA

    been taking lyrica for 2 months. has not helped the pain, have horrible swelling in my feet and legs, blurred vision and rapid weight gain. hydracodone works best but my doctor wont perscribe it due to fear of the federal goverment. the stuff is useless. cost 650.00 for 90 tablets and dosent work, versus 80.00 for 90 vicodean that does work.
