Here I go again banging the gong. Welcome Purple. I have a friend that has prostrate enlargement and has bone spurs in his knee which will be scraped next week. He was put on Lyrica, for pain. Like the Hadicol salesmen of the fourties and the snake oil salesmen of the 1900's, another wonder drug, Cures whatever ails you. When Neurontin came out they were using it for pain, for MS, for Bipolar, and heavens knows what else. My friend is in incredible pain and the docs give him this? He cannot drive, dizzy, falls down, drowsy, but still in incredible pain.
