    Hi everyone.
    Well finally been to see my Gp and has told me to stop the Lyrica as they are doing nothing for my pain at all.

    She is now trying me on Transtec pain patches, Opiod Morphine based but on the lowest dose.
    Willing to try anything just to get one day free from pain.
    Just wondered if anyone else is on this or has tried it.

    My doc told me to stop the 450 mgs. for 24 hrs. so I could start a lower dosage. But I had to take a 150mg. that night because I couldn't sleep. Then for 2 or 3 nights I took 100 mgs. Then I went on the 50mg. and was supposed to go back up. Every time I tried to increase I had the crazy side effects. So I did finally just quit it altogether. I really think it messed my brain process up which was foggy from fm anyway. I hurt while on it, and I think worse after it. I'm trying the Traumeel now but no luck yet. I get discouraged too. Nothing seems to help, but not to give up. We just need to keep looking for the answer. Blessings and love, Kat7
