In the past I have read different people talk about lyrica and there sucsess stories and thier failures.
Some people claim that it is an excellent drug that is working incredable for me.
Some other people say that it worked great for the first two weeks then stopped working, so I stopped taking it.
And even others say that it is the best drug I have taken and I'm having excellent results.
And then some people say It did toataly nothing for me and I stopped taking it after the first week.
Let me just say that I have been taking lyrica for over 3 years now, and at no point ever have I thought any of the above. My impression of lyrica is that it is a drug that slowly gets higher amounts taken over a short period of time, and that it is a drug that is supposed to be a long term
medication as far as woking up to the correct dose, then staying on it for at least sevral months before evaluating the ups and downs.........I dont know if it is or it isnt working for me because its mostly always the same, but my doctors assure me that it is a great drug to take for rsd and neurological patients so I continue hoping that the long term goals come thru.
Can anyone elaborate thier lyrica story? I just dont know what you mean when you say that the lyrica is working great and I'm having great results.....,Or when people say that it is working incredable for them and then it stops after 2 weeks and then I stopped taking it????
When you say it works great, what works great,swelling.stabbing pains,electric shocks,walking without a cane or crutches??? What makes a person start and stop lyrica within 2-3 weeks???
I'm just really interested on what level dose it work so great that you were so impressed???
I appreciate any comments,over a bit of time it's just somthing i have noticed and since were all here in hells kitchen together mabe we can get some opinions.
Thanks for you time,
Hope Everyone Has A Pain Free Day
