Does Anyone Take Lyrica

Does Anyone Take Lyrica

I didn't want to take due to bipolar could flare up but I'm desparate. Even my neuron tin is not helping. It feels like my body is attacking itself. Horrible. Does Anything take pain away and I can keep some abilities?

I cant take lyrica or neurotrin. Both cause more issues. Im currently on only muscle relaxers. Just had antidepressant changed mot sure it is better or worse. Sirry that is mot more help. I have recently tried icy hot with lidocaine. Works 6 to 8. 6 mostly. Some dsys not at all.

I had a bad reaction to Lyrica, weight gain and bad thoughts. Cymbalta also did not work. I tried Savella, that was the only med for fibro that I tried in which there were no side effects. It did not do anything for pain for me unfortunately, but it is another med for fibro that may help. Good luck!

I did and it was horrible. I don't need help with nausea pain, dizziness , or suicidal thoughts, it didn't do anything for me. I am one of the many who do not respond to meds. In over a year I tried cymbals, lyrics,savella, gabapentin, nerontin..hmm too many too recall. I wish you success in your medical trials...
