  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Shortly after starting LYRICA, I experienced SEVERE HAIR LOSS, IN A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. I felt EXTREMELY TIRED AND SLUGGISH. I ALSO EXPERIENCED SHORTNESS OF BREATH. ALSO SEVERE LOSS OF APPETITE...TO THE POINT OF WHERE I WOULD NOT EVEN EAT AT ALL FOR DAYS AT A TIME. WITHIN A FEW MONTHS OF BEGINNING LYRICA, I SUFFERED A MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION WHICH RESULTED IN A OPEN HEART BYPASS SURGERY. I AM CONCERNED THAT THE LYRICA CAUSED THE HEART ATTACK. IS THIS POSSIBLE?
