I posted this on the Health message board but meant to post it here! Anyway, I have had chronic pain/fibromyalgia for years. I was wondering if anyone can share with me their experience with Lyrica if you take it or have taken it? I took it for a few weeks back in 2007 and at first i thought it was helping but then i stopped taking it but can't remember why, I guess I had a weird reaction and didn't like the way it made me feel. But my fibro is getting worse and I wanted to try it again. I'm not taking vicodin anymore for pain because I just got too dependent on it, but I did start taking suboxone to help with getting off the vicodin. I also take soma for the pain and it really helps alot. But I feel I get too dependent on that as well as lorazepam for anxiety and I'd rather have something I can take long term that won't cause those same kind of dependent feelings. Do you know what I mean? I'd like to hear any responses. Thanks!
