Orchidflower here.....thank you for all your responses. I think if you read all the posts, you will see that Lyrica works well for some and not for others. I have been doing a lot of research on Lyrica, in particular, the Mayo Clinic website. If you look up Lyrica on that site, you will find over 50 negative side effects that are either "more common", "less common" "rare", etc.
I, myself, am having about ten or more of the negative side effects, with no relief of the nerve pain; including
weight gain, memory loss, slow speech, fatigue, loss of
motivation, RACING HEART, HEART PALPITATIONS, nausea, sweats, being cold, and constipation. I am currently taking 200 mg 2x day. I want to stop, and I am telling my PM dr. next Tues.
Baybreeze, what is Provigil? Thanks for replying. I hope that you can find relief soon.
God bless all of you and may we all feel better soon.:angel:
