i switched to lyrica from neurontin thinking it would have less side effects. i got boils and cysts from neurontin and general stupidity, but it helped with pain and withdrawals--moved and no pm doctor wants me with dose i've been on for 3 years.
i've been on lyrica for almost a week and 4 days ago my face turned red as if it were sunburned. now it is peeling and actually hurts. my eyes are swollen and it looks like a few layers of skin have thickened and i will be peeling for a while.
face also hurts and itches. could this be side effect of lyrica?
