      Lyrica has helped me out sooo much. I’ve been on it since I was in the 8th grade

      I gained weight after taking it. 50 lbs in 3 months to get exact. Now, I am off it. I am still trying to drop the weight.

      Gabapentin did nothing for me at all. Didn’t even feel like I was taking anything. I’m now on 300mg a day and it helps significantly more than the gabapentin.

      Lyrica has worked for me for years

      Lyrica helped a lot more than Neurontin for me.

      Yes. With gabapentin, I was having horrible side effects and constantly having to increase the dose because it just wasn't cutting it. I am now on lyrica + savella and am doing much better. Lyrica is really good for pain, but you need to be very careful not to run out or stop it cold turkey. The withdrawal can be pretty bad if you don't take it consistently

      I never tried gabapentin but after a terrible cymbalta experience my doc had me try lyrica and it’s been helping a lot

      Gabapentin doesn’t work for me. Just makes me sleepy lol hopefully you get the right medicines ❤️
