I was put on Lyrica for my FM, it helps a bit.. not as much as I was hoping for though. My only problem with the medicine though is that I have to take it at night, because it makes me a bit more tired than usual.. but, I take depakote for seizures and migraines, and every since I've been taking it, it's really helped. I hope you find something that helps.

Jenny, you'll have to let us know how the lyrica works for your headaches. I've actually never heard of it being prescribed for that - mostly I hear about it for peripheral neuropathy and for fibro pain, but they may have found that it works for headaches too. I take an older tricyclic antidepressant for my headaches and it helps me sleep too. I still get lupus headaches, but not as often. Do you know if your headaches are migraines or lupus headaches? I have read that they are very similar and it's often hard to tell them apart.

Take care and let us know how the lyrica works for you.
