While I take this medicine for fibromyalgia, I also suffer from chronic pain so I'm not entirely sure how effective it is for me.

I was taking the generic form of Lyrica (Pregabalin) for several months to combat the Peripheral Neuropathy. My lower legs swelled to nearly twice the normal size, the pain increased and I gained about 15 pounds. I stopped taking it an started to apply topical lidocaine ointment to the lower legs and dropped the added 15 pounds in about 2 or 3 months. The swelling and pain have subsided dramatically also.

This medication is effective for my anxiety but I have too many side effects. I'm getting weight gain, dizziness and blurred vision.
