  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Major
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: POSSIBLE unexpected results: improved incontinence (went off of Cymbalta around the same time, so not sure which, if either, was to credit because I am beginning to see a decline) Neurontin, although much cheaper, seems to be far less effective. I have lost my prescription coverage through my husband's health insurance, so I can no longer afford Lyrica.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: When I first tried Lyrica at 300mg/day, I experienced severe swelling in my ankles, legs, wrists, hands. This time I am not having any problems with swelling. Perhaps it was too much salt intake, perhaps it was the Lyrica. I don't know for sure. Now being on a 300mg/day for a month, I experience more drowsiness than before. I feel foggy and unable to focus for several hours at a time. I also require more naps than before. One has to weight the benefits with the side effects. For now, I believe that the pain relief I get is worth the side effects. My pain is not 100% gone, not ever. But it is better than before.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I use a 2x daily pill container for my meds to remind me to take them and show me if I missed a dose. My phone is set to go off to remind me to take my afternoon dose. My boyfriend and other friends remind me to take my meds. Lyrica helps me not to feel so much acheyness and pain most days.
Cost: < $25 monthly
