Discussions that mention lyrica

Back Problems board

I am having an epidural tomorrow and am having sedation for it. Can anyone tell me what this sedation is like and should I have it or should I just have the epidural awake? Will I be functional later in the day? I'm having this epidural for sciatic pain that goes from my lower back down into my left leg all the way to my left foot. I'm currently taking lyrica and zanaflex for it with little relief. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
