My doctor wants me to try Lyrica. My issue is after the reading the side effects I’m completely confused because I already experience most of these side effects well really all of them to be honest.. except for suicidal thoughts. I’m just worried that since I have all of these “side effects” as “symptoms” that it’s just going to make the symptoms worse.

      Lyrica can be quite tricky….. when I was first diagnosed my fibro fog was so bad I’d forget my birthday (I got into a car accident that flared me & couldn’t sleep for 4 days straight) & I was put on like 200+ mg twice a day…. & I swore it was almost like fibro fog…. I had an orthopedic doctor that wife also had fibro & he told me to cut the mg down to 100 x2 because anymore than that it becomes the stupid drug…. Feel free to message if you have questions!

      So, I spent like an hour writing a response to this but then it told me I exceeded the character limit. HMU if you want the whole story, but I'ma try to tldr it at this point. I started taking Lyrica for anxiety before I knew my physical symptoms were most likely fibro. I tried going without to see if those symptoms which can also be side-effects would go down. The symptoms were just as bad if not worse, I was just more anxious about them.
