I just started taking Lyrica but still have the burning roof of mouth. Has anyone had any success with Lyrica for pain?
My PCP gave me 50 mg of Lyrica for burning roof of mouth due to neuralgia after having shingles?

Lyrics takes time to work. You have to build a level up. Also, your dosage is low and may need to be raised. Lyrica is always gradually raised over time to get patients used to it. Good luck and take care/be well.
Hi Misha6. I'm sorry you are suffering! I was given gabapentin which I understand is similar to Lyrica. It is hard to say exactly what helped, but the thing to remember with shingles is that with very few exceptions the pain WILL PASS – with time. Good luck!
