I took 75 mg 2 x per day for 2 months; i noticed very little difference, minimal at best. I weaned myself off. SO far, I am having some "crisp" nerve pain, especially in arms my arms. THis stuff was expensive--$52 after my insurance paid--and the monthly cost of my insurance is huge! I am also so fearful of brand new meds; i just keep waiting to hear that they do things like increase risk of stroke, cause you to grow a second head, etc., etc. I have a friend who is a nurse, and she said she thought that neurontin was recently implicated in some type of risk--does anyone know the details. She also says that her patients often take neurontin--and she's a hospice nurse. I feel bad, but i'm not terminal. Fibro patients just seem to have such a concoction of "trial and error drugs" and this makes me nervous. Compare neurontin and lyrica. Is there anyone else who hated Lyrica? I keep thinking I'll panic in a few hours and dash out to get my refill. I had to get it special approved by my insurance. Geez, I feel so torn! Thoughts?!
