    Have any of you had any experience with the new medicine Lyrica? Doctor just gave me a sample bottle and I am always nervous about something new. Have not taken any yet. It is suppose to be for nerve pain.

    My doc gave me a sample bottle too. Told me to take 1 at bedtime to help with pain and sleep. I took it for four days and quit. My hands/feet/ankles were swollen and driving me nuts. Another med in the trash for me but thankfully it was a sample this time.

    Good luck

    Put Lyrica in the Search box and you'll get a lot of info

    If you type in Lyrica oe medication (or something like that) in the search engine above it will pull up all the posts on that topic. Hope all goes well.

    barbslilies,

    Please be careful with the Lyrica!
    I had the same problems as Toni posted above.
    I,too am still recovering from the painful
    swelling.I let mine go until I almost got celulitis.
    I am still on an abx for this and still have some swelling. I have to take Lasix each morn.

    Didn't help pain, but did control restless leg
    syndrome some what. And OH,YEAH! It made me gain
    about 2 lbs a week, which I REALLY needed like
    another hole in the head!
