OK, I have only been taking Lyrica (100mg BID) for 7 days. I have read some of the possible side effects, and while I have some of them (swelling of hands & feet), I also have some other weird stuff going on. Obviously, I'm not expecting a miracle, but I haven't noticed the meds helping me one bit. Actually, I feel worse than I usually do. I feel panicky and just in an all around funk. I am slightly nauseated, but that usually goes away fairly quickly.
Anyway, I was wondering if any of you that have been on Lyrica (or are still on it) have any weird side effects. Also, how long did you take it before you got some sort of pain relief? I was so excited when I got it free through the Pfizer company, but now I'm feeling kind of bummed. Maybe I'm even feeling depressed-I'm just not sure what to call these feelings I'm experiencing.
