My Mom has alzheimer's and has had damage from TIA's. Her left leg really bothers her & her Neurologist prescribed Gabapentin and Mom has still been complaining of Left Leg pain, so Dr prescribed Lyrica.

I looked at some old posts about this - seems like tons of side effects for both medications. Including memory loss - since she has Alzheimers, taking something that can induce memory loss does not seem to be a good idea. Has anyone had this same situation?

Thanks!
