I have never tried Lyrica but the biggest complaints on this forum seems to be the start up side effects which are worse than the disease...then the fact that once it starts working the drug poops out very quickly so the dosage has to be continually increased. Then you reach the highest dosage allowed and it poops out again. Of course, then you have to decide if it's worth it, and if not, wean off which can also be unpleasant. I have read the same thing about
Cymblata, which is a sister drug.
Like everything else, people have different reactions to all kinds of medications but Lyrica is something I will never try after experiencing a nightmare with another seratonin stimulating drug. Then again, for some, it has been a lifesaver.
