Over a year ago, my wife, who was suffering from constant spasms and the associated pain, was prescribed Lyrica. She could only take the small dosage since anything higher always upset her stomach.
The Lyrica pretty much ended the jumping spasms that she would suffer at different times of the night. It allowed her to sleep undisturbed by the spasms.
After using the drug from about 8 months, she decided to slowly take herself off it and see what happened. The spasms didn't return and she no longer takes the Lyrica.
One never knows what is going to happen when you have MS!
