? about Lyrica side effects/allergy
darlyn05 posted:
Has anyone been prescribed Lyrica for pain associated with the nerves in their back? If so, did you have any side effects or allergic reaction to it?
dianer01 responded:

I do not have any known drug alergies and was able to take lyrica successfully. It helped me tremendously. Some people are very sensitive to it and cannot take it.

The only problem I had was I stopped taking it without tapering off. The pain came back with a vengence. I went back on for a few weeks then tapered off successfully.

hope you are able to find some relief.
