Lyrica Reviewed by Elize J van Rensbug on .

I'm a 65 year young retired female suffering from nerve pain after last back op, neck pain after 2nd neck op,severe fibromialgia:Using Lyrica for 2 years.Took 300mg once a day, increased to 300mg twice daily for 9 months before and after back surgery (fusion,etc) and 2 neck surgeries (fusion amp; prosthesis)Graduly decreased dosage to 50mg once per day (at night) and recently increased to 50mg twice daily.Side effects were uncomfortable at first but mild to slight at present.Includes inability to loose weight,slight hair loss,memory loss,inability to find right words in middle of sentence,inability to remember facts, names places,decreased libido.Other medication includes Paxil (using it for 17 years),Bilicor,Estrofem,Wellbutrin (recently)Cozaar. In my opinion many of the more severe side effects are a result of the combination of Lyrica with other more or stronger drugs. I am feeling on top of the world, practically painfree and full of energy.I hope that there are many others that find Lyrica such a blessing as I have.
