Aug 21, 2008 (Started Jun 01, 2009)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Major
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Advice & Tips: that it can (and does) cause weight gain, but it really helps the neuropathic pain - I tried 4 days back on Tramadex and ibuprofen and ended up in severe pain. I've decided that I'll deal with any wt gain that I have, but I'll definitely stay on the Lyrica.
Side effects: Weight gain

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Slight
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: That if you need this medicine but can't afford it, look up Pfizer's website - they have a form you can fill out that will tell you what programs they have you're eligible for. Just fill it out, print out the forms they indicate (and make sure you read everything, it can be a bit confusing, and you need a separate form for the Lyrica too), take them to your Dr, mail them, and you're done. It's not hard at all, and I'm one of those people that really has a hard time getting things done.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Blurry vision, Dizziness

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Can’t tell
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I get this medication through Pfizer's "Connection To Care" Program due to the fact that my medical insurance refuses to pay for it even though it's on the drug plan I have. I've been fortunate to receive this medication through the program.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Blurry vision, Dizziness

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Very
Advice & Tips: I have to take 6 Lyrica tablets a day for my fibromyalgia..it really help but I am wary of its side-effects..it does wonder for the achy pain but I still need to have pain pills to control my nerve pains...(shooting pains). So you can say that I have multiple pains..Achy feelings and Shooting pain feelings are 2 different things.
Side effects: Tiredness, Daytime sleepiness, Blurry vision

Nov 24, 2008 (Started Feb 01, 2007)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Aching burning throbbing body pain: Slight
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 150 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Try taking it only at night and skip the morning dose if you can. I had to stop the morning dose since the side effects are too much to handle and allow me to function well, but the extra dose does help control the pain better but I feel really strange for a few hours and act a little goofy. I would not want to drive during that time period.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: Daytime sleepiness, Spaced out, Brain fog
