... 18 months of using hydromorphone. I still have significant burning pain in low back, hips and buttocks and am concerned that Lyrica is causing it or not helping at all..been on 6 months
Oliver; Have not really heard of it increasing the pain, But if you have been taking it for 6 weeks without any relief you should give the doctor a call. Sounds more like you may need to have something added with the Lyrica or at least the Lyrica dose for you. Good luck I would give the office a call as soon as possible. Chuck1957
I thought it was worsening when I got up to 300mg / day.
It may have been just the disease worsening but for sure want working. Watch out for weight gain.
I went to 75mg and eventually stopped .
I was told by a neurologist at a prestigious clinic that Lyrica is over-rated.
Some drugs you need to stop at a dose that is right because the side effects will hopefully be less too.
