Does Lyrica have to build in your system like neurontin? If so i'm not filling this script... I take too many other pills on a daily basis.



  • Lyrica started to help me after the first dose. Best wishes.

  • it helps me, after i get past the surgery pain i may go up to 300mg. Oh, i am hurting today, but doing everything i can to get in a better mood before my kids come home, so this may sound mean. Took me maybe less than a week to feel the relief(did have some side effects that dissapeared after a week or two). Hey stick with what you got, cause taking 1-4 pills a day that might break your nerve pain does sound like a huge burden. Me personally I would do almost anything to get back my quality of life, but if swallowing some more meds is too much live with the pain, hell some folks don't want any meds. i want my life back, but you may not be there yet.I apologize for being mean, but come on what do you have to lose? You can always stop taking the med if its not working, or causing problems. What if it helped ,but you were to stubborn to give it a try?

  • I don't understand. Why would you refuse to fill a prescription if the medication takes a bit to work into your system? If it works and allows you to function better, what's the problem?

    Most all of us with nerve pain have to take daily medication to suppress the worst of it. It is just the new fact of life for us.

    Many folks are able to get away from other medications once the right one is found that helps control their pain. The key though, is being willing to try.

    Just my opinion.
