Lyrica didn't work

    Lyrica just didn't work for me. My rheumy put me on it a couple of weeks ago, and I took it for ten days. I finally stopped taking it a couple of nights ago. It made me feel very weak, gave me strange, tingling pains, and crazy dreams.

    I saw my pcp yesterday and explained my reaction to lyrica. Since I can tolerate lunesta, he increased it from 2 mg to 3 mg, and I slept well last night. I'm still worried about the long-term effects of lunesta, but I don't know what else to do. I'm afraid to try ambien.

    Does anyone have any other ideas for pain relief and sleep? Has anyone else had a similar reaction to lyrica?
