I had a look at other topics and wasn't sure where this question belonged - not drug pipeline, not really regimen, possibly daily life...But eventually settled here - hope no-one minds?
Saw my Neuro today and he has changed my Neurontin to Lyrica (for neuropathic pain). I have been on Neurontin for a long time, and now Lyrica, which he says is better, is available in S. Africa (I know it has been available in the USA for sometime now), so he has decided that it will manage my pain better, especially since my recent exacerbation.
Anyway, I haven't taken it yet - tell the truth I am a bit scared of change, so looked it up a bit, and the side effects seem quite bad
The point of this post:
Was wondering if anyone had any personal expeience with this drug - good or bad?
I will obviously try it for myself, just want to be prepared (I realize that we all react differently)
. I have been prescribed 75mg twice a day, I was on 600mg Neurontin 4 times a day.
Also, is it commonly prescribed for MS pain in the USA?
I am also on Baclofen and Amitriptyline for pain...
Thanks for any input.
