I was the one who made a thread on here a few weeks ago. It was a few days after they approved it or something...but it did look promising. I am thinking about switching myself...however, Im not sure if insurance will cover it. My insurance recommends a generic first, before moving on to the real stuff. But, I dont think they like to pay for a new drug...which stinks! lol But, I did read it wasnt supposed to have all the weight gain that a lot of people on Lyrica have(like me!) So, that would be good. But, I also think it is supposed to help a little more.
As we all know, we are all different so medications affect us all differently. Therefore, its hard to tell. I did read that it had a tendency to raise heart rate and blood pressure, so thats kind of bad. But, I suppose trying it is the only way to know for sure. Maybe in time I will be able to switch. I have been on Lyrica for 14 months now.. Im not sure I can tell a difference, but then again, sometimes I do! I really dont know!
But, if anyone tries it, please post. I would be very curious as to the results.
