Female 54 years old, Intelligence Researcher, London - I'm very worried, been taking Lyrica for 3 years, side effects were hilarious at first (felt drunk all the time) - now not so funny, My short term memory is useless, I live on my own and feel very scared about the long term effects of this drug I'm on 150mg in the morning and 300mg at night, if I try to cut down my neurology symptoms start up very soon after. I'm daydreaming and forgetting that I'm cooking (burning a lot of stuff) forgetting to get shopping I need, I even had to write an itinerary for the mornings just to get me out the door to work!
