25mg Lyrica 2x daily for occipital neuralgia. After the first 24dose I felt relief from brutal headaches and dizziness. Weeks 3-4 experienced horrifying, vivid dreams!!(persistent and ongoing)Not sure if this outweighs the head pain relief since I do still have good and bad days.

A relative was on lyrica following spine surgery. Unsure of dosage amount but it was high enough to make her lose balance frequently and turn into a paranoid monster. Under this medication she developed wild delusions that I was trying to steal her house and she claimed she was protecting my child from me. She threatened to have my child taken from me and that she had "compiled a file this thick" (about 5" by the distance of her hands) and had "submitted it to a third party." She began claiming my toddler was "failing to thrive and malnourished" and harassed him about what he was eating. Then she called the police and tried to have me arrested. The police stated my child was clearly very healthy but that since she has filed previous reports against me without my knowledge they had to arrest me. She told them I'm a schitzophrenic (which I am not) and they admitted me to the hospital and left my child in her care as she was under the influence of this medication since she is next of kin. I was released hours later with a clean bill of mental health and told by the emergency room physicians that her prescription of lyrica is either too high or she is abusing it. She was also drinking alcohol with this prescription. This medication either turned her into an insane person who had no common sense about what she was doing. And she claimed to have no memory or skewed memory of these incidents. After this I refused to allow her near me or my child for a year. During that time she got off lyrica. She claims to have never done any of these things. If a person has any anxiety or tendency to paranoia they should never be on this drug. This drug won't just destroy the users life but the lives of those around them.

Additional Drug Information


* Warning: The facts and figures contained in these reports are accurate to the best of our capability; however, our metrics are only meant to augment your medical knowledge, and should never be used as the sole basis for selecting a new medication. As with any medical decision, be sure to work with your doctor to ensure the best choices are made for your condition.

* About FAERS: The FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) is used by FDA for activities such as looking for new safety concerns that might be related to a marketed product, evaluating a manufacturer's compliance to reporting regulations and responding to outside requests for information. Reporting of adverse events is a voluntary process, and not every report is sent to FDA and entered into FAERS. The FAERS database may contain duplicate reports, the report quality is variable, and many factors may influence reporting (e.g., media attention, length of time a drug is marketed, market share). For these reasons, FAERS case reports cannot be used to calculate incidence or estimates of risk for a particular product or compare risks between products.
