If you are really interested in trying why not buy say two weeks worth at first and see what you think about it.
The only problem with that is that it seems more often than not it takes a couple of months and/or at least one dose increase of Lyrica before you know if it is going to work.
There is a co-pay reduction card available from Pfizer that you can get through your doctor. It will reduce your co-pays down to $25 max. The cards are good for up to a year. If your doctor does not have any they can get them by calling 1-212-733-2323.
Up until a few months ago my wife was taking Lyrica for Fibro pain. at a dose of 150mg/day, and it was working quite well for her. Thanks to IL medicaid she was forced to switch to Neurontin and she is up 1800 mg a day and it is only working about
10% as well as the Lyrica did, plus she is having a lot of bad side effects from the Neurontin, and she had almost none when she started and then increased the Lyrica.
