Do a search, it helps some.

I take it but it makes me depressed the next morning.

Lyrica helped with my nerve pain. it didn't take it away, but removed enough of it to make it bearable. I could never take more than one pill because otherwise it made me feel very drubk and spacey. I would always take it at night and it helpe me sleep but would make me groggy during the day.

Thanks- I've been taking two (75mg each) and feel drunk/tired all the time. Maybe I'll go back to one and see if it still helps

I was on it for a few months to treat burning pain in feet. It may have taken the edge off, but it makes you eat like a pig. No lie. I would have gained 50 lbs if I stayed on it.
