... and feet. Lyrica or Neurontin ? Not interested in side effects or other conditions at this time. Please just comment ; Lyrica or Neurontin. Desperately seeking nerve pain relief. Sincerely and thank you. I have severe nerve damage from cervical spne surgery /fusion and extreme nerve pain from RMSF thank went undiagnosed for 8 months.
Bet you didn't know this! When Neurontin (Gabapentin) had its patent expired (meaning generic medications could be made now) a new drug came out by the same company to help with fibromyalgia... Lyrica. It was made to be a slightly better version of Neurontin.
However, Lyrica is non-generic so tends to be costly, and results about its efficiency have varied and they seem to be about the same, with one working slightly better than another. I would recommend Gabapentin since they have done more studies on it and doctors know the side effects better, etc. Dosage is a big deal with efficiency and you can be increased to very high doses to take at night.
Best of luck!!!
