    Hi everybody,

    Has anyone been on Lyrica? Any side effect?

    I had been on Neurontin 600mg, 3 times/days. I gradually discontinued Neurontin to switch to Lyrica. I was OK when I started to take one Lyrica a day but, when I started taking the second Lyrica, this is when the side effects started. Upset stomach, acidity plus it increased my fibromyalgia. It got so bad that I switched back to Neurontin. Even now being back on Neurontin, I don't feel well. My fatigue came back, sore neck and legs.

    I have an appointment today with my GP and will let you know what he will do.

    I tried it for several weeks and had to stop.

    1. I feel asleep on the toilet in the middle of the night harder than heck to get back to bed.

    2. Fell on floor when trying to get out of bed.

    3. Hard to wake up in the mornings.

    It did stop the pain, tingling and numbness in my feet at night - so wish I could take it.

    Take care
    Susan

    Is Lyrica helping anyone with CFS symptoms or FMS symptoms or is it just working on the neuro pain? ( shouldn't say "just" since that is a biggie)

    Thanks.
