What dosage of Lyrica are you on? It has helped me so much. I take 300mg in the morning and 300mg in the evening and have no side effects. You need to start with a small dosage and gradually increase until you get results. I started on only 75mg at night and increased it from there. The side effects that you are having will go away if you are not on too large of dosage. You should not drive until your side effects subside. Talk to your doctor. If I were you, I'd give it a chance. It has helped me. I hope it will help you.
Definately it was the LYRICA!
I started off slowly over a weekend and work my way up to 3 caps of 150 mg a day. Then I had to back down to just 2 a day, so I'm on 300 mg daily. It did have side effects of severe loopiness and it went away with me. Each time I up'd my dose, I warned my boss and family. I did fine. It has helped, but I did gain weight which I'm working on.
