Can Anyone Recommend A Medication Like Lyrica

I am allergic to lyca (my tongue swells up) and the doctor has tried a couple other meds (sleeping meds) but they make my legs tingle and don't work very well on the fibro symptoms is there another medication that that works like Lyrica

@A MyFibroTeam Member Why won't they give you Neurontin? It is the safest of the 3 meds used for Fibro . Savella and Lyrica both made me go through the worst flares I ever have, I actually ran a fever. I took effexor and Neurontin together. I just couldn't take it this time around it effects me different, It turned me into a Zombie.
