    Question Lyrica vs Elavil for Vulvodynia


    I was on Elavil for Vulvodynia and my new pain management doctor has switched me to Lyrica. I suffered through the side effects of Elavil (dry mouth, weight gain, tired all the time, irregular heart beat, high prolactin levels). My new doc says Elavil is very old and has as many side effects that Lyrica doesn't have because it is a newer medication.

    My question is...does anyone know if Lyrica works just as well as Elavil for Vulvodynia? Is it better? I am scared to take it because of the side effects I have read of, but I can't take living with Vulvodynia.

    Thank you!!!
