I have just been prescribed Lyrica for residual leg nerve pain after surgery. The issue I am having is whether or not to take it after reading some info on its side effects and later withdrawal effects. The initial amount prescribed to me is 50mg twice a day to be adjusted if needed. I just want some relief but having children to care for daily, etc... I'm just not sure it's worth the risks. It seems like these meds are so hit or miss with people. Any thoughts on Lyrica? Anyone find any natural remedies for nerve pain that work? Or is that idea just wishful thinking!!!
