... completely stop taking Lyrica? I am experiencing several side effects and do not want to continue with this medication. I have a urinary tract infection and constipation as well as a result of taking Lyrica. I am experiencing dizziness, blurred vision, constipation and strange thoughts. When I stand from lying in bed I have to hold onto something to keep me from falling because of being so unsteady on my feet. I feel as if I am leaning to one side. Also my mouth is very dry. I have trouble sleeping and It's hard to concentrate at times. I was given Lyrica for pain associated with shingles.
