    Anyone prescribed lyrica for cfs?

    Just saw Dr and he want me to give it a try. From what I've been reading it seems to be used more for pain management.

    I don't have all that much pain--nothing that an Ibuprofen can't handle most days.

    So I was wondering if anyone with cfs has tried this and if they found it helped with any of the other symptoms.

    I hate taking drugs and if this is not beneficial for the other symptoms of cfids I think I'll give it a pass.

    Thanks for any responses...Marlene

    Stargirl has a long thread running on this at the moment.

    I have been given Lyrica and I'm holding off taking it.

    Personally if I didn't have a pain problem, I wouldnt touch it. I've checked out the side effects and, as I'm very intolerant of most drugs, I find them pretty scary.

    love
