Will I have the same Bad effects from Lyrica that I do from Neurontin? Does gabapentin and pregabalin have the same effects?
Everyone is liable to have different reactions. You will have to go with trial and error until you can hopefully find something that works best for you.
You can't know without trying it. I have a bad reaction to lyrica and do just fine on neurontin.
lyrica is more relaxing with less side effects,i think it's more potent however it deserv a trial.
You can look up side effects of drugs on DC. I have been on both drugs, neither worked well for me (I think that I should of been on a higher dose of Neurontin). Neurontin caused less weight gain but gave me a craving for sweet things (this was not the cause of the weight gain) . With Lyrica you will gain weight, alot of weight and quickly too.
I, on the other hand, cannot take either of them due to bad side effects.
