Get off it now! Before time sets in and you have awful withdrawals and start loosing your teeth. Abscess teeth are a side affect of Lyrica!

Teeth loss should be on the side effect List. I have no aw pain since I stopped taking Lyrica. It was like coming off her ion. The stuff is poison and I want someone to pay for my dental cost!!

This stuuf( Lyrica ) is a poison, I lost 5 teeth because of this. Do not take it. The withdrawal is horrible also! Good luck.

I still suffer horrible side-effects from weaning myself off Lyrica. I have been through all of the horrors and would never recommend it to anyone. I have experienced severe depression, massive weight gain (I was never more than 82kgs until i took this pill for backache - i have put on 8kgs in 4 months), severe memory loss, moods, light and sound sensitivity (bad tinnitus), loss of balance, muscle ache, bad headaches, aching eyes but worst of all is the tooth ache. i dont know how they could cure jaw ache with a drug that produces such bad tooth ache. I loathe the drug and wish i had never taken it. am facing a back op rather than take any more drugs.

I am so worried about my teeth - I have been on Lyrica for 4 months and my teeth ache like crazy. I went to the dentist and he didn't know why - on X-ray he found that I have some new holes but he said this may be due to grinding my teeth BUT now that I have read testimony from others I am really worried. My pain doc says I can't just stop taking the Lyrica - any advice would be appreciated

I haven't gained weight on it, and if anything it makes me less depressed. I am just worried about my teeth. They are starting to have chips and holes in them. I had the most beautiful teeth. :(

I have been taking Lyrica for several months now and currently at 200mg a day. I have had some weight gain (aprox 10-15lbs) but the worst parts are the memory loss.. stupid stuff like word finding that should be simple and is just gone! Another issue is major hair loss.. clumps of hair falling out each time I wash my hair. Lastly is the worst issue and that is loss of ability to have orgasm. I am currently titrating down off this drug! Side effects not worth the help with pain from fibromyalgia:(

Hello, Jacky! How are you?

Yes, there is a risk of such side effects with it, but the thing you have to be aware of is that not everyone experiences them. Some people may run the gamut of all the side effects, but others may not have any. It all depends on you and your body.

Do you normally experience a lot of them?
