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!
