I tried Lyrica and it worked wonders on my chronic pain. I unfortunately had to stop it because I was one of the unlucky ones that the warning label warns you about, I experienced extreme depression while on it. I also had the same reaction to Neurontin(a similar drug, the "older version" of lyrica). So be careful when taking it and make sure you watch out for any signs of severe depression/suicidal thoughts. It definitely is a wonderful drug. It almost completely helped my pain. I would wake up with no pain in the morning, when normally I ached all over, felt tired and run down. I just wish was able to keep taking it.
