    I read last week that this drug was working very well with FM pain, is anyone on it?

    Hi lynnford

    There are quite a few people here who have tried, or are on Lyrica. If you do a search on past posts putting "Lyrica" in the search box, you will many threads relating to this.

    I myself have recently started Neurontin - I've been on it about 3.5 weeks, and it is helping with my headaches and facial pain, but not helping with the burning in my arms, or the achiness in my legs.

    take care

    Hi, my Dr. prescribed this a few weeks ago, as her fibro patients had positive results with it. I was very skeptical, I have been through so many drugs with no true relief.

    I am very pleased to see a significant change within the last 2 weeks. I will only take 50mg at night because it does make me drowsy. Still, on this dosage I would say I have had 50 percent of my horrible night pain disappear. I have used flexeral, ultram, and tried neurotin and never had much change other than feeling out of it.

    Good luck!
