 3  Anxiety When I first started taking it it was like the ultimate happy pill I was sociable I was in a great mood and I had tons of energy and accomplished a lot. Since Lyrica doesn’t cure the problem it’s basically like alcohol the more you take it the more your body needs And I do admit I was taking more than I was supposed to be sometimes and I would always run out at the end of the month. I’ll be honest lyrica withdraws almost took my life there’s so many things that you feel whether it’s severe nausea you can’t even move your body, you literally want to kill yourself but you’re too sick to do it. This lasted approximately at least three months and I think I have permanent damage from it M 49 8 years

 1  tracheomalacia Was taking Gabapentin, but the side effects or causing slurred speech and thoughts process. Was taking off of Gabapentin and put on Lyrica. Only took two doses and the next day I shimmy headed, like I was drunk. I didn't take the lyrica the next morning and that's when my world turned upside down. The last thing I remember was phoning my husband and him telling me to put my grandson in the and for me to lay down and rest. I woke up in the ER unable to talk, move, swallow, or do anything. I it like I had a stroke. I have been in the hospital for 4 days and put through the ringer to try and fix all my side effects. I will live with my tracheomalacia and never take anything for it. The FDA needs to research this drug further. I could have died. I may get an attorney on this. DO NOT TAKE THIS DRUG! F 55 1 days

 4  ACDF also with Brachial Plexus Inju I resisted taking for 2 years but as a last resort, started to take. I'm doing well adjusting to grogginess etc... my main problem is (I have coined the term) CONSTIRRHEA ! Can't go and then worried about -sharting- because it is diarrhea. Anybody else? Anybody?... It definitely works for the nerve pain in neck and arm. I am scheduled to trial with a nerve stimulator... I do not want to stay on this medicine long term. F 60 6 months

 3  Bulging discs First took me awhile to get used to being so drowsy and dizzy but after a few weeks I was ok. It did help take away alot of my back pain but now have about 15 pounds of extra weight. And mostly abdominal weight which looks horrific!! I would love to get off but it does help unfortunately. If anyone knows how to help with this crazy belly fat please advise. I eat pretty well and work out everyday. My weight is the highest its ever been. 51 2 years

 1  Neuropathic pain in neck Bloated belly, loss of libido, weight gain Lyrica worked at first but at some point over 14 years it quit helping with pain. Worried about dementia, read that Lyrica can contribute. Trying to get off this filthy drug is pure hell: anxiety, jitteriness, hot flashes, insomnia, waking 3-5 times a night. Had to taper very slowly. Even if you didn't have seizures when you started it, you can get them if you go cold turkey. Still not off it totally. Took me one month to go from 2 to 1 75mg per day, another month to cut that in half. Worth the effort to get off it! Libido returned, because this drug lowers testosterone and both sexes need that hormone! Getting off has restored my sense of self also. If you're not taking it please don't start. Expensive nightmare. F 66 14 years

 1  Nerve damage post surgery Feelings of disassociation, like I am drunk and with no energy, no concentration, very dry mouth, 5 years of this now, getting worse with more side effects every year, tried four times to reduce dose and finish with this hell, but I didn't realise how addictive lyrica is, my god I can't believe it. I never thought a drug would conquer me, I am so strong normally, this has left me shattered and depressed, praying I can find a solution. F 72 5 years
