Lyrica: How long does it take to work?

Hi-

My mom is taking lyrica for chronic pain, how long before it takes effect?
Thanks for your time.

Some people get immediate relief and for others it takes 5-10 days. It needs to build up in your system so it is important that it is taken consistently.

Re: Lyrica: How long does it take to work?

I took Lyrica for 3 months (I'm in the Europe) and found it worked pretty much within a couple of weeks. Side effects of weight gain and the fact that for me it didn't work as well as Neurontin meant I stopped taking it a few weeks back. Didn't really see the point in changing this to this med to be honest?
