I had a 1 level spinal fusion in November '07. I am fusing nicely and my doctor said I could resume all my normal activities. I have been taking Lyrica since my surgery. For the rirst few months it was 75 mg 3 x a day. I started gaining weight, so I cut out the middle dose. Then, I cut out the morning dose, all gradually over a period of weeks. I cut out the remaining dose about a week ago, but seem to be having a headache and some anxiety. I know these are some of the common side effects of withdrawal. Just wondering what any of you have experienced.
(I had my doctor's approval to go off it)
