  • When I went off Lyrica I smelled the most offensive odor ever! My brain identified it in my sleep as the smell of slime eels. I took the meds for only three months. But that smell surfaces now every time I smell bread warming or toasting. Even bread baked of unusual things and those in foreign countries I visit, trigger that smell. It makes me gag and then I can't eat the offending food. The original horrible smell lasted 3 days, gradually lessening until I could eat on the 3rd day. But the smell persists and I have been off the Lyrica for 2 months now.
