been on Neurontin for over 20 years- works ok for me. The lyrica made me very tired- even after being on it for over a month.

I do not know what ur weather is like there, but, I find creating a nice, comfy place to sit outside with hot or cold tea, can boost my spirits. Take in some fresh air. I know it is hard to remember but many people have things much worse than fibro patients. Think about the things you love. Call a good friend. Also, doing a little something for someone else also makes one feel good. Breath deep, spoil yourself with something you enjoy. Hope things turn around for you soon!

I feel that the neurontin help with some of my pain...but more for my anxiety and energy level. I've tried so many different meds and I neurontin doesn't make me feel all messed up or weird or funny
