Everyone has a different response to lyrica. I take it. It helps me, but I have gained weight taking it. I was on the highest dose of 225mg 2x a day for over 3 years. Recently they lowered my dose too 150mg 2x a day and I have started losing weight. The best I can tell you is give it a try and see if it helps.
I have had no trouble with Lyrica. In fact, it is a lifesaver as nothing else seemed to work. The only thing that gets me is the cost of Lyrica. I pay about $150 after insurance a month, but it works so well, I really have no choice but to pay.
I am sure you have started your lyrica by now. I just wanted to say that when I took 75 milligrams twice a day I didn't notice much improvement. However, there was a big change for the good when I went to 150 milligrams twice a day.
