I was unable to adjust to the Lyrica when I tried it. The first few days I felt like a walking zombie. Eyes half open, running into things, forgetting what I was talking ,etc... There was no way I could drive or even try to work at that point. I was told that my body would adjust to this and the side effects would die down. Unfortuentely, I couldnt take a month off of work to let things calm down so I had to stop it.
Did your doctor mention anything about the side effects?
