    My mom started on Lycrica for her FM. She told me it made her feel great. So I went to the doctor yesterday and I got myself a prescription for it. Of course my insurance would not pay for it so I had to pay for it myself.

    Anyway, I am supposed to take 150mg once a day for one week and then up it to 150mg twice a day. The pill made me feel drunk! I felt really loopy! I had to hold onto the funiture to walk through the house. Maybe I need to just get used to taking it? I do take percocet also for pain, so maybe that was part of it, I don't know.

    I started on Lyrica about a month ago. It has helped my pain, but I think it makes me a bit groggy. Other than that I have had no other problems.
    Hopefully it will be better after a week or so. You never know, it might also be percocet. If it persists, I would let your doctor know. Good luck!
