I'm a newby to this forum but I've had back surgery (very sucessful) on L 2-3, 3-4, 4-5 and also have bulging and herineated disc on L 1-2 and 5-S1. Even though the fusion was hight sucessful I'm still having a lot of issues with the two untreated disc that are now taking a lot of stress. I also have RA and Fibro.

I reacently started taking Lyrica and as I ramp up the dosage I'm starting to see some positive effects. Is anyone else taking Lyrica? I'm intested in the dosing level and the positive results.


  • hi dennis,
    my name is angie , u can read my history on my profile. but yes i am taking lyrica, i am taking 600mg a day, they work a little but not as much as i wud like them 2. i also take number of other medications, these hav been prescibed by the pain management team. the doctor is a anethasist, i hav much faith in him.

  • :) hi!i see this is your second post and i want to welcome you to the forum! my pm is an anesthesiologist as well, many are. i am on 300mg of Lyrica Daily and it has helped the sciatica in my left leg. it took awhile to adjust to the side effects. 8} i did and i have none to complain about except weight gain. Lyrica has really been a blessing to me. good luck and i hope you continue to seek and find pain relief. Jenny :)
