Was put on Lyrica last Thurs 75mg 2x day the first nite i Was so messed up stoned unstable ulmost fell, so hubby said this is once a day til i am home 24hrs. Started 2xs on May 4 Was very emotional depressed May 5 first thing in the morning but that cleared up by mid morning. The rest of the day I felt good. Actually walked 6x. 9min walks
Today May 6 i had a date and my first adventure out of house and neighborhood. It was marvelous fantastic had breakfast at whole foods. The fresh fruit tasted so incredible then we went to the bank. I have walked again the long loop in my neighborhood the app says I walked .62mi. Just does not seem that far
