  • Glad to hear that you are starting to get some relief with Lyrica.

    What dosage did your doctor put you on, did they start off gradual and build up?

    Hope that you are able to get into see a specialist soon.

  • Brenda,

    So glad to see another that has success with Lyrica. Most of my pain is nerve pain, and I was put on 300mg of Lyrica almost 2 years ago, and it gave me part of my life back!! I hope you continue to see relief with it! :)

  • Pregabalin or Lyrica has been reviewed of success by many people who availed its benefits. I have been using it to get relief from knee pain. However the pain has subsided but now I feel as if though my legs are tires and restless all the time. I have no problem walking, running or anything; just the tiredness of legs.
