i have been suffering from non stop chronic daily migraines for over 10 years. needless to say, i went through every drug out there, blasted my head multiple times with botox but nothing ever gave me relief. not even a narcotic rx. my neuro put me on lyrica 75 bid and within 2 - 3 days i felt total relief. honest, my husband asked "who are u?"
i hope it keeps on working because i was on my last nerve.

Lyrica did not work for me, was up to 600mg.

finally on a combo of topomax, propanol and imitrex for break through pain.

Wow, that's awesome migraine2! I've been on a combination of topamax, neurontin and lyrica for the last year (and topamax and neurontin for the last two) and haven't found much relief, so I'm going to start botox injections next month.

Hi, I've been on Lyrica for over a year now as I had Shingles on my face. Now I am trying to get off it. Almost impossible, very slow process. But my head sure is bad right now with the pressure! I call it, "Whooping Head".
