    hi ssingh,

    i was prescribed Lyrica for fibromyalgia. i did not stay on it long, i had some reaction but i don't remember exactly what the problem was. i know i gained a lot of weight, and i just did not feel right.

    there are several members who have had great success with lyrica (but as far as i know they were prescribed the med for fibro) and there are some that did not like it. i am sure that these members will be along soon to share with you.

    i know that just recently there was a thread where different experiences with lyrica were discussed, you should be able to find in lauri's lounge or medications.

    Hi SSingh...

    From my understanding of Lyrica when used for Fibromyalgia...myalgia pain is to change the way our brains receives pain, helps improves sleep....and in the end helps us with anxiety, depressions, the blahs. Remove the pain, which improves the sleep...domino effects into our emotions and mood changing for the better...happier spirit.

    For me...I tried it but I didn't like the side effects ..for you, there maybe no side effects...

    Hope this helps...
    Love,
    Oluwa

    I take 3 150 mg a day for the fibro, it has eased the pain enough so that I haven't been rushed back to the hosp. I am also bi-polar so I suffer from major depression, I don't get the euphoria feeling that some say happens with lyrica. I do suffer from severe panic attacks and will say that they may have been reduced to some degree.
