I was prescribed lyrica from my spine specialist after I experienced nerve pain after herniated disk surgery. My. Specialist instructed to only take lyrica at night as it will "spin me out" I think he used this term because I'm only in my early 20's and thought that would connect with me better. I have had a really positive response with this medication, sure I did feel a little off balance and not myself but I got use to it. In my case the little side effects I felt was nothing compared to the nerve pain I was experiencing, with this medication I was able to go back to the gym and lead a more active life. My specialist didn't really monitor that much, I did have down days were I felt a little depressed but that also could have been to a work situation at the time, plus we all have down days. I know lyrics doesnt work for everyone, but it worked for me and I hope it works for you in managing nerve pain. As someone who has gone through nerve block injections into l4 and l5 discs where they couldn't completely numb and disc surgery this option is 100% less painful,

That's wonderful and I am very glad that this medication is working and has helped you, so much.

Like any medication, there are people that get great results with it and others that don't.

The side effects that you did experience are normal, because this is an anticonvulsant that works on brain chemicals.

Other side effects that people might experience can include: nausea, dizziness and weight gain.
