Lyrica? How long before side effects subside? When does the brain fog and lethargic feeling go away?
I'm on my 7th day of Lyrica and the past two days, I have to take 1 - 75mg about 10 or 11 am, then another 75mg - before bed around 9pm - 10pm. I feel so clouded and cant seem to concentrate on anything, helping the nerve pain a bit, but I don't think I've been on the med long enough... read more
Hi all neuropathy pain patients, diabetics with neuropathy and Fibromyalgia patients, I've actually gotten some relief from the constant stinging pain. I'm almost waiting for the other shoe to drop, if you get me on that. I've had a bad winter with some days that were hair afire... read more
