  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: None
  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle pain: None
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Very
Dosage: 25 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I would tell anyone don't try it! Even my Dr. won't prescribe it anymore after seeing what it's done to me and researching it from the company that makes it. According to the side effects listed by the company, these are all a "normal" reactions. Well I wish I'd have known that before I took it. I've tried to get off about 6 times now and every time I get down to the last few days of one pill the feelings of suicide are just awful and scare me so bad I have to go back on them. I don't know what the answer to this is. Do I have to go in to drug rehab to get off of the darn things? I wonder.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle pain: Can’t tell
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 25 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: My doctor placed me on Lyrica thinking it might help my pain, and perhaps they do somewhat, but they cause severe swelling , especially on my face in fluid filled blister like things. I have small bumps under my skin all over my upper torso which itch awfully all the time. I've tried to get off this drug twice with my doctors help and every time I had to go back on because the suicidal feelings were so strong, I couldn't take it any more. I wouldn't wish this drug on anyone!

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle pain: None

  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 25 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This is a drug I wouldn't ever give to anyone I cared about! It has caused me nothing but trouble from day1. Between the huge fluid filled blisters on my face to the constant muscle twitches and jerks, this is a drug that is more tha a sligt burden to my daily life and I would qut taking it immediately if I could, but the last problem and most important problem is the severe suicidal feelings I get as soon as I lower the dosage.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: None
  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle pain: None
  • Perceived effectiveness for Nerve pain (neuralgia): Moderate
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Never
  • Burden: Very
Dosage: 450 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I was taking Lyrica for a few years and then I had trouble with my insurance paying for my script so I stopped using the Lyrica for awhile. I finally got things squared away with the insurance and I started taking Lyrica again at a lower dose. Within 3 days of restarting the Lyrica my family noticed that I had changed. I was groggy and not paying attention to important things. I felt a presence who talked to me and I talked back. That was a really creepy feeling once I realized what was happening. I stopped taking the Lyrica again because my family was shocked at the difference in my behavior. My pain is worse without the Lyrica, but my life is much better.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Blurry vision, Lack of concentration, Brain fog, Weight gain, Weight gain

  • Perceived effectiveness for Nerve pain (neuralgia): Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle pain: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 600 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Before I was taking my current dose of 600 mg. of Lyrica a day I was a total mess with electric type pain consuming my whole body in addition to the regular type of pain that the doctor prescribes regular pain meds for. Now that I am on such a high dose of the Lyrica I am at least able to live a normal life where I am not constantly being electrocuted by everything I touch and feel inside.
