I went off Lyrica after 6 months and didn't notice a difference. Hopefully you won't have a problem although you have been taking it longer than I did. I think all people react differently and it also depends on what other meds you are on.
I stopped because I was gaining too much weight and the weight was hurting me more than the Lyrica was helping. (hope that makes sense!)
Anyway, good luck and hope it all goes well for you.

When I posted earlier, I should have made it clear that I went off Lyrica by my doctors instructions. Chartreux is right, you wouldn't want to go off by yourself. There are too many complications and risks after taking something for so long!
Just wanted to clear that up. I wouldn't want anyone to think it was alright to just go off a med. It is always important to go thru your doctor so he can monitor how you are doing.
Sorry if I caused any confusion. Good luck!!
