Health-New drugs [Feb. 11th, 2008|10:01 pm]

I started on Lyrica today. It will be a 5 day ramp-up period, and will work at some point between 1 and 4 weeks in. The exciting thing about it is that it is designed specifically for nerve pain. I'm starting at 11lbs below goal, so I'm keeping an eye on my weight. If I get over goal, I may have to scrap this particular med. It's very expensive, but will be worth it if it works. Wish me luck. This is step 1 in trying to better manage my pain.

I will be very interested to hear your experience with Lyrica. You always give very detailed reviews of things. :)

So far the result is I'm dizzy. It takes at least a week to work, so I'll let you know in 3 the full story. :)

It worked great for my Mom and we have similar chemistry, so I'm excited to get up to the full dose.
