Hi Lunajen, I was prescribed Lyrica for fybro last year and took it for six months. Almost from the start, I felt sick constantly. I just felt that the amount of pain relief it gave me wasn't worth the constant sickness.My GP persuaded me to stay on it during the winter months, but in April my back seized up, and my rheumy took me off the Lyrica, and put me on Voltarol and Amytriptilene.Don't know if this is any help!!! I know others who have taken it without any trouble...
I was given it for fibro too, but it was effective only at 300 mg. At that dosage I was sleepy and dizzy all the time and it made my hands shake, so I couldn't tolerate it. I'm now on Effexor for fibro and it's better.
