switching from gabapentin to Lyrica?
I'm wondering if anyone has switched from gabapentin to Lyrica. I've had many years of success with gabapentin to control severe nerve pain from an emergency back surgery. I'm at the max dosage (1200mg 3 times a day), and unfortunately I think I may have built up a tolerance- I'm having more frequent breakthrough pain, like electric shocks. My primary care doc has suggested trying Lyrica, but I would need to titrate down off the gabapentin and then up on the Lyrica, and I'm terrified about what that transition time would be like. Has anyone tried this? Thanks!

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
