    my doctor has been pushing Lyrica-and I plan on telling him this info tomorrow-I just may be without a doctor. He doesn’t like to be crossed!

      Then you may need to find a new doc. Neurontin nearly killed me, I reported what was going on to my Dr’s office staff & never got a call back. Days later I called in again to say I was stopping neurontin, cold turkey cuz they/my doc hadn’t given me any direction or help, again, never received a call back. I’ve also been on Lyrica, twice. I hate everything about FMS, but these to drugs should be pulled from the market.

      I took it for 6 weeks. I wish I’d never touched it.

    Had been on lyrica and when I heard the facts I decided to stop 450g daily. Stopped cold turkey and reacted badly. When I told my gp, she told me that she was delighted that I had decided to stop but shouldn’t have gone that Way about it, so I had to go on it again but started off at 150g daily reducing on a slower basis. I have to say that I don’t miss them as they were doing absolutely no good, so don’t know why I took them for so long. Kept getting repeat scripts and no more t.g.

    I was given a week’s sample of Lyrica, then prescribed Gabapentin to gradually start at one then increase to 3 at bedtime. This was prescribed by a neurologist for extreme pain in my lower legs. I quit the pills on my own 2 weeks ago. I had been having intermittent nerve pains in my legs, mostly the left leg. I was referred to a neurologist after injections in my back for pain (by Pain Management Dr.) didn’t work and the nerve pain began. I am just reading this report…so glad I stopped taking those!

    I’m not doubting the dangers of these drugs, but what are some viable alternatives, I suffered multiple strokes a few years ago anh have been dealing with severe nerve pain on my left side ever since .I’ve been taking a combo of Lyrica and Cymbalta ever since. It’s definitely not a magic cure but I guess it helps a little bit.What other options are there? My dr. seems to think those are the only 2, same with my neurologist

    If you ever have nerve damage you will know why people take lyrica. I try to keep the dose small (less than 200 mg) a day. Lot of drugs are no good for you but if there are not options better than screaming in pain
