I posted about "meds", but didn't get much response about Lyrica, so I will try this route.
I have had increasing difficulty with fibromyalgia since menopause -- I'm "post" menopause now, on premarin --- and I have had more and more pain and FATIGUE. For the past four days my headache has not let up.
Anyone out there experienced with Lyrica??? My two grown daughters want me to try it, and my doctor has brought it up, but I don't know. If it will help with the FATIGUE, which is one of my main complaints, I would take it in a heartbeat. Can anyone tell me if it helps with any main symptoms?
I have reviewed the FDA information on Lyrica, and it sounds pretty good, but I don't want to start down a path similar to the vicodin misery. I had become addicted to that and it was hard to get off of it, but I did it. I guess I'm a bit afraid of the Lyrica for that reason. Any ideas if it is similar??
Any info you can give me would be very welcomed!
