My neurologist mentioned that after I have my epidural injections in my neck that I may have to go on Lyrica to help with the "in between" pain and to keep things "settled" in there. Has anyone ever been on Lyrica
<--this is the link to their website btw and has it ever affected your Uc symptoms? He said it was similiar to Neurontin and Skelaxin but stronger. I always get so hesitant about
starting a new med - guess I'm gun shy.

I've been on Lyrica for about 6 months and I have less body aches and pains since. I think as far as UC wise it made my bms slow down and dry up at first. It made me very sleepy at first but now I take it right before bed and I get a very refeshing sleep and feel energized by morning. I hope it gives you some relief!
