My doctor gave to me for shingles said would help with the pain and also help with mood swings. I was told to take it at bedtime. I am really nervous about it hearing different stories about this drug. Any advice from people who have taken it.

Hi. Take the med at bedtimes. My daughter takes it then to relieve pain. She can sleep better and we all know sleep is essential to healing. She takes it in the day when her neck gets really bad. She makes sure she doesn't drive and of course no alcohol of any amount.
She has occasional vivid dreams but they are just interesting and no big deal. She is young twenties and works hard.
Try it and see. Shingles hurt like crazy. You can always call your doc if there is an issue. Right? Good luck.

Hi daisybean, my son had shigles near his eyes & they prescribed Lyrica for his. Helped the pain a lot , but the side effect of some blurry vision he could not work with, but it did help the pain tremendously. I take it for fibromyalgia, & couldn't manage without it... Just a thought... Mary
