    I've been taking Lyrica 125mg total per day in 2x doses for 6 weeks, a few manageable side effects, (gaining weight and feeling dopey) I don't like it, but I recognise its ability to reduce @ 50% of the nerve pain and ability to help me function at work while I wait to see the surgeon.

  • droth on Feb, 1, 2015:

    I was prescribed Lyrica due to chronic pain. I was also prescribed a different pain med, as well as something to assist with sleeping through the pain. I am writing this to share my experience in hopes that others may avoid my difficulties. I began to forget whether I had taken my meds or not, that was the first thing that I noticed. I then began to lose time, I did not remember what I had done, and where I was. I did not want to admit that I was losing control of myself, as I am a proud individual. My wife has told me things that I did, or did not do while taking these meds, and I do not remember most of what she has told me. One night we were watching a movie, and sometime after it was over I began to inquire, "when are we going to watch this movie, are we going to watch it or not?" I drove places and had no recollection of doing so. I have never had issues like this with ANY meds. When I attempted to recall what I did, and where I was, in most case my recall was limited to flashes of what had transpired. I forgot to pick up my children from school, and tried to make excuses and cover it up. This medicine is not to be taken lightly. Do yourself a favor and avoid consumption if possible. I am not proud of this but I felt obligated to share this in the hope that it may help someone in the future....

    16 hour drive. If the lights were on, all was fine, but if the lights were off and all there was the headlights, things would jump out of the shadows into the center vision. Robotic birds, women in brown cloaks, always rushing forward. there was screaming and ducking of the head the whole time and forgetting to be driving. Startled as if just waking up.

    This type of experience is with 500-800mg of lyrica and only with a dark setting or eyes closed. Day time, shadows would appear in the peripheral zone of vision or audio disturbances such as echos.

    Any of my fellow guinea pigs and unsuspecting experiments who risk the worst possible illness, decay, pain and death all for the good of mankind, you are all saints! Can anyone describe details of their trips to that netherworld? I am asking mostly because it might give me a guage to measure just how fucking insane I've become / being able to easily tell you whats real and whats the creepiest NOT! would be helpful and an added bonus as well...

    Thanks!
