help: swelling

my Dr. put me on 50mg. of Lyrica. After that my ankles and shins swelled up soooo large it looks like you could put a pin in in my legs and they would burst, is that a normal side effect? only been on it for a month and it is such a low dose.

Re: help: swelling

hi patio,
welcome to the boards. call your doctor right away. i had the same reaction and quit taking it. what you are experiencing is not a side affect it is an allergic reaction.
ps. i suggest quitting the drug today and calling your doctor. allergic reactions are not cool.
