... Thanks for the info, I'm on neurontin and it does help, so I'm probably going to leave things as they are with that sort of med. WOW I'm not on that much though. Maybe I should ask for an increase if it helps that much. I go to my PM on Tuesday and I'm discussing meds anyway. Kim (25 replies)
... DANG Judie, I'm sorry about that. I had no idea or I would have not brought it up. Please forgive me.:rolleyes: :( You will be in my thoughts and prayers from now on. I'm glad you are ok now. I can relate, I've been there where I thought about it, but never acted. This disease is just horrible isn't it? I've read about people doing that because of RSD. Again, I'm SO SO sorry....

... Hi! Seems we all run circles around the same pills! It's like sooner or later we've tried all the same! I didn't have any luck with Lyrica, but it could have been a dosage mix up. I am on 3600mg of Neurontin daily, and it works great on the legaches. Good luck! LD (25 replies)
... Lyrica is an updated version of nuerontin. They changed a couple molecules in its chemical structure and slapped a new patent on it. Alot of people do swear by it. My PM did state to me at one time that it was superior to nuerontin.. I guess you could take that with a grain of salt or not. Good luck on your appointment! Im going tomorrow and im bringing my better half with... (25 replies)
... Hi,:wave: I was wondering if anyone tried Lyrica? and if so, what did you think? My sister has fibromyalgia and swears by it. I know it is for diabetes nerve pain, but does it help us folks with RSD? I know it's in the Gaba family right? Please send me your thoughts!! Kim (25 replies)
... Karen, where do you live? My neurologist, who prescribed the Lyrica, has a lot of samples and asked if I had any trouble with my insurance to get it... fortunately I can get it, though expensive. So if I were you, ask him/her for enough samples to get you through. Good luck! Mary (16 replies)

... Judie, You are definately not nuts. I had the same things from Lyrica. More swelling than usual, bad headaches, and bad dizziness (which led to weird eyesight, and some twitching), but I wanted to give it a chance because that was something that was tried relatively early. I was only on it for maybe a month, enough time to see if it was working (which it wasn't) and then I... (16 replies)
