I started taking Lyrica a few weeks ago and at first I felt like I was stoned. Not all the time but in waves. At first the pain went away completely but now it seems that the Lyrica doesn't last the full 12 hours. I am not in pain like I was but uncomfortable. I can now do things I haven't been able to do for a very long time like just walking down stairs or stepping off a curbing. I actually feel like I have more of a life. It also changed my vision. Sadly, I had just gotten a new pair of glasses that were great. One good thing is I can now go to bed and sleep! Wondering if I should have my doc. up the dose from 75MG that I take twice a day.
