    I was wondering which has worked better for any of you.

    I have found out through PPA I can get help with either one of these meds, so I am going to ask my dr to prescibe one or the other.

    I would just like to find out which one helps the most.

    I have fibro and diabetic neuropathy.

    Thanks for any and all responses.

    Gentle Hugs to all of you, Pamela

    Lyrica is supposed to act similar to Neurontin but withou as many side effects, according to my Dr.
    It seems to help me. When I tried to stop taking it I realized just how much it had been helping and went back on it.
    I don't have diabetic neuropathy, just FM. I too Neurontin years ago and had more side effects, but couldn't tell you right now what they were. I think just kind of a groggy feeling, all day long.
