Advice & Tips: This was very helpful for me, and I had good results with it. My advice: be consistent in taking Lyrica. Do not skip doses. I know that it gets old, always having to take a handful of pills every time you turn around. But this is about restoring your quality of life. This medication was like standing in the sunshine after having been locked up in a damp cave. It makes that much difference!

Advice & Tips: I only positive benefits when initially taking Lyrica. I was able to go back to work and had more energy. After about 18 months on Lyrica, I began experiencing the normal side effects of this drug. I began gaining wait very fast, 20 pounds, and please note, I have always weighed the same. I have never been on a diet in my life; even after having my 2 kids. I also began having swelling of my extremities, at times, the swelling added to my pain. Also, I began have extreme dry mouth, which causes trouble swallowing and cavities.After the initial weight gain, I have stayed at the same weight. Fortunately, the positive effects of Lyrica out weigh the negative. I absolutely could not function daily without Lyrica.

Advice & Tips: I picked up the medicine from the pharmacy, went home and ate and then took it. I was hurting pretty bad because I had been up most of the night with my 4 year old daughter coughing. My pain is worse when I don't get enough rest. I could tell about two hours after I took it that my pain was significantly decreased. I felt really good for the first time in a very, very long time. I was sooooo happy!!

Advice & Tips: I was put on the titrate dose to end up taking 50mg twice a day, but it made me sick to my stomach, so the doctor changed it to 25mg twice a day and I don't feel sick anymore, but I still hurt.
