what can you tell me about this med? Lyrica. My doc is putting me on it for the pain. Is it good? Will it work? I am mostly bed ridden and definately housebound right now.

I just want my life back! :cry:

Lyrica is an anticonvulsant for seizures, but I think it is often used for nerve pain, too. You can go to www.mayoclinic.com and look up most any drug and it will tell you about side effects, other drug interactions, that sort of thing. I've been on neurontin for a long while now to help with nerve pain - it's an anticonvulsant, too. Made me very sleepy at first. Now it doesn't work so well - I guess you build up a tolerance. I don't know if lyrica has the same kind of results.
