      larry - good job, I guess. Hey, it is a long haul for the next 3 or 4 decades, and if you find that the neuropain gets bad and you have to go back on Lyrica, don't consider it a failure or a setback.

      I have taken breaks off the meds and hoped that I was done for good with these meds, then the burning becomes unbearable and I reach for the meds again. I did this over and over for 8 years and now have reached the conclusion that it may be necessary to take the meds to get through the day to be the most productive and sane I can be in this brief stint on the planet. But I wish you luck that you can stay off it and not suffer from neuropathic pain.

        Congrats Larry... I have tried several times to go without.... It hasn't happened for me yet.... The neuroshit is just too intense. I am considering an electronic spinal stimulator.. The main reason I am considering it is to reduce the burden the meds put on my liver and kidneys!!! I hope I hope therefore I am!!!!

        Hey Arn.. Hope things are mostly good with you.
