For some people yes. I still hurt quite often while taking lyrica
for my fibromyalgia. Increased pain is a common side effect. If it continues to get worse talk to your doctor.
Yes, first 2-3 weeks are adjustment period, for some it's longer. Keep the dose the same and keep your Dr informed.
Look up possible side effects. I did not have that reaction when I took Lyrica several years ago. Other side effects made me stop taking it. Good luck
Sometimes for some folks it does, but it should start helping soon. Give a little more time
It did when I first started. I told my dr lyrica intensify my pain and stop taking it. But later on when I took it again I started to feel it actually help my pain.
