I was on Lyrica for 6 months. 125 mg. twice a day. It did help a bit , but I gained alot of weight which made the pain in my back, knees, & ankles worse, so my doctor took me off.
I have heard many good stories from others. My sister, who also has Fibro, swears by it. It has helped her Fibro pain alot. I guess it depends on the person.
Good luck & I hope that it helps you.
Never regret something that made you smile!

Don't mind the blank post just previous to this! Fibro fog! I thought I was wishing Christi good luck with coming off Lyrica on a different post and forgot I scooted to this post! Hee- Hee. I don't think I have welcomed you Purple, so welcome! Can't offer any advice about Lyrica, have a pres. for it but scared to start because of my sensitivities to so many meds.
Hope it works out for you though!
