I have been taking Lyrica since 9/07. I have only worked my way up to 150mg a day, because I couldn't tolerate the side effects to go higher than that. I only noticed slight relief from pain in the beginning. After all this time, I am still in constant pain, and feel the Lyrica is NOT doing a thing except making me dizzy, off-balance, forgetful....it is starting to scare me. So I decided to wean myself off of it (I will see my Dr Friday to discuss this further) but I went down to 75 mg a day - then for 2 days, I have taken none. Since I stopped, I have felt horrible. I feel like I have the flu really bad, but I am not sick. I am constantly cold and chilled, and tired beyond belief. BUT I no longer feel so dizzy and disoriented. Today, the feverish feeling got so bad, I took a Lyrica and felt better within an hour, but felt "off" again. Please, if anyone has weaned off Lyrica, please tell me what you experienced. What were the withdrawl symptoms like? I can't stand this anymore.
