I know a lot of people find relief with Lyrica
, but I couldn't tolerate Lyrica
or neurontin, though they both did help with my nerve pain. WIth the Lyrica I gained about 15 pounds in less than 3 weeks without changing my diet. It killed me, as I had worked so hard to get my weight off (and after being on high blood pressure pills for eight years, I was able to go off them!)
The worst for me, though, was the cognitive issues I had with both. I had trouble word finding and staying on topic.
