From this study (4 months ago):
I have been on Gabapentin for FMS since 1998. My Dr. suggested Lyrica and I stopped the Gabapentin over the course of a week and started the Lyrica. Within two weeks I was losing the ability to remember the names of children in my Daycare, some who had been there for 7 or more years. Proper nouns eluded me. I stopped the Lyrica and returned to Gabapentin. The names of people and things came back to me.
