I took lyrica for about a month. At first I noticed a little swelling in feet and hands, then when dr increased my dose I swelled up like a balloon and had shortness of breath. Dr. told me to discontinue the lyrica.
Hope you have better luck with it than I did.
Take care of you,
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
