    Neither took away more than 10% of my pain. I recently ran out of lyrica and I'm not getting more, going to stick with gabapentin because the lyrica seems to be more addictive. Plus on lyrica I get more dizzy, more dry mouth, and I see trails off moving objects.

    Nothing has really ever helped with pain but fortunately my pain has dramatically decreased over the past few months. I just can't do much with my arms or the stabbing pain and aching starts again.

    But isn't lyrica basically just a stronger type of gabapentin, just a slightly different chemical structure?


      bottom line is Lyrica is the little brother to Neurontin and they both cause terrible weight gain ..... and when getting off of them have a dr help you dont do it on your own....
