I just started Lyrica last night for my Fibro. 100mg / day (50mg tab 2x/day). Have been having horrible foot and leg pain. Walking is almost unbearable. We shall see if it helps. Also on Baclofen and Diclofenac Sodium (Voltaren, tablets and topical gel).
I've been on Lyrica for about four or five months now (75mg in the morning and 150mg at night). I noticed a small change once I started talking it but it hasn't gotten any better since then. I've had a little bit of weight gain, but nothing too serious. But I've found I've had cognitive issues since I started taking it. There are days I can't seem to get my mind to connect to my mouth to form words. Haha. It can definitely be frustrating! Nothing worse than being on a phone call with a client and not being able to talk and say what you want. I've also had some weird muscle twitching when trying to sleep. But nothing too major! Hoping that it will continue to be helpful. Good luck! 😊
I have found that lyrica is the only medicine that touches my pain but it is easy to gain a resistance and if you are off of it even for a couple of hours the pain is much worse than before you took it.
