Lyrica worked wonderfully for me. I had chronic nerve pain and was on it for a year. It took 4 weeks before it really started to work for me but it definitely worked. I even slept better. I was able to go off it after a year without having the pain come back. It definitely helped.
Only problem I had was on the stronger doses my short term memory was terrible. If I didn't write it down I forgot. Once I got in the habit of writing things down it was good.
