Re: Switching from Neurontin to Lyrica?
i switched one time a couple of years ago. i had been on neurontin 400mg at bedtime. unfortunatly lyrica and my body did not like each other. i am back on the neurontin. i was on the lyrica 2 days when i noticed an enormous increase in muscle pain. by day 4 i knew it was the med so i quit and by the next day was fine. went back to the neurontin and chose to reduce the mg to 300. i still have symptoms at this dosage but i can live with it. 4 takes the symptoms away, only i am reducing everything these days to see just how much i can get by on. it's a "for me" thing.
remember it is always your choice. you can say no to a doctor.
i would be most interested to hear how you do on it. i hope it helps you. read the literature the pharmacy gives you and keep it handy till you know you are cool with the med.
