Ok ive been on Lyrica for almost 2 weeks now and ive noticed that ever since i have started the drug, that i have become very short of breath.I am on 75mg. 2x/ day. I dont know if that is a normal dose or not; doc wants me to be on that until i see him next month. My prescription insurance has totally refused to pay for Lyrica in any shape or form; that want me to try neurontin.. let me tell you about neurontin; no way no how.. i was on that for a shoulder injury, and i took a dose of that stuff, and my heartrate went up 180.. that was it, went to e.r. and they gave ativan to slow down my heart, and dilaudid for the chest pain.. needless to say, between the 2 drugs, i was in lala land.. thanks for the help in advance.
