Do You Take Either Lyrica Or Gabapentin?.

Do You Take Either Lyrica Or Gabapentin?.

Do you take either Lyrica or Gabapentin? If so, what are your thoughts? What mg do you take? I currently take Gabapentin but am thinking of switching to Lyrica.

Yes, I tried this but reacted badly. One of the side effects, and we FM patients tend to experience them, is the inability to release urine from your bladder. It took a couple of months but my flow and abilty to release urine slowed then one day it stopped completely. It took several months to retrain my bladder and I had to cath myself during that period. My advice is to be aware of those body functions.

I have been on Neurontin for a year and a half, and I am only now after 17 years looking into the side effects of Neurontin and fibromyalgia, it seems that they both share in many of the same effects on the body , I tale 900 mgs but only have been at that dose for a 2 months . I don't take anything else for pain .

I took it years ago, but I have become so chemically sensitive that I would not touch it again.
