I took Lyrica for 3 months. For the first 6 weeks I had excellent results and was able to walk again without pain and do many things other than stay in bed with my pain. For me, unfortunately, it ceased to alleviate my gross pain after the 6 weeks. However, it seemed also to work on my energy level and stirred me up 'somehow' to want to become active again (that was a treat). I suffer from nerve root disease, polyradiculopathy, fibromyalgia, neuropathy, and herniated disc. After trying Gabapentin & Lexapro with no results, I really felt that I had finally found a med that would allow me to regain my life and it did that for me for the six weeks. I wish you every luck and hope it works long term for you.
