 1  Undiagnosed Sciatica like pain Took it only for 2 days. The side effect was so prominent, I had to stop it. First day - Woke up feeling hung over, body temperature was elevated to 37.4C, mouth and throat were super dry, felt chills 6 PM the next day, the symptoms magically disappeared. Had another dose, woke up with same symptoms again, by evening had dry eyes and a quarter of my eye was red. Decided to not take this drug again, stopped immediately. Horrible side effects M 47 2 days
 1  Fibromyalgia Nausea, suicidal, hot & cold flashes, gastro, deep depression, anxiety, insomnia. Might be helpful for nerve pain in end of life pain management, but do not take it ever if you are offered as a younger person. Look for natural alternatives. F 44 3 years

 3  Fibromyalgia, neck spinal cord pain, Extreme fatigue,insomnia,heart palpitations, memory loss,cognitive problems, wide spread body aches, urinary dysfunction. I'm a Veteran,my prescriptions are mailed. In July my prescription was delayed for over 2 weeks. Military snafu. The involuntary cold Turkey withdrawal from 300 mg a day was so extreme I thought I was dying. I could barely get out of bed to use the bathroom. My body shook so violently I felt like I was coming apart. All I could do was pray. I could barely speak, my mind couldn't formulate thoughts. When I could "think" I couldn't find the words ... it's impossible to describe. But I know how I DON'T WANT TO DIE now!! I let my doctors @the VA know I was out of my prescription- they didn't seem concerned. I was scared to death, literally. I'd manage to get off the couch, stand up, only to come to on the floor. I told all of this to my doctor 3 weeks after going cold Turkey. I didn't want to start Lyrica again. However, the VA has no opioid policy. You can only get tylenol unless you're in surgery or the recovery room. Now I'm back on it having all the side effects- my depression has hit an ALL time high and my life seems meaningless, I can't see the future. I exist hour to hour, day to day, struggling to find some resemblance of my past self. After reading the article- at least now I know why I feel this way. F 52 10 years
