Lyrica should be withdrawn gradually (over at least 1 week) to reduce the chance of seizures in patients with a seizure disorder.
There are cases where addiction has been reported - these are rare.

It also has side effects of suicidual thoughts, depression, and anxiety. My dad and uncle were on it and said it's very hard to get off.
