  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Fibromyalgia)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (Involuntary movement)
  • Adherence
    Never taken as prescribed
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Advice & Tips: I stopped taking this after discussing it with my doctor. I was having involuntary twitches and muscle movements that I found very disturbing and was concerned that they would become permanent. I found the Lyrica to only help on a minimal level. Yes it did take some of the pain away, but not enough to make it worth the side effects becoming permanent.
