I just saw the newest ad for Lyrica.  If you take this drug for Fibro, you must NOT operate heavy your back hoes, fork lifts, dump trucks, jackhammers, wheel barrels full of wet cement...
So if you have fibro and take Lyrica, you have to give up your job as a crane operator.  So sorry.

Don't laugh, my rhuemy had me working in a factory running machinery while taking 150mg of lyrica 3xdaily. It was rather tricky. I stopped taking it cause it didn't help the pain and it gave me vivid scary dreams.

I guess I'll be ok cause I don't use machinery, I haul the trees out of the woods on my back.

Hahaha, actually, I thought the commercial said not to use heavy machinery until you knew how Lyrica would affect you? But maybe I'm wrong. Anyways, it won't bother me any. lol.
