Question: Lyrica for Sciatic Nerve Pain?

 ChristaB - Wed Jan 18, 2006 10:25 am

Has anyone had any experience with the drug "Lyrica" for sciatica?

Any input will be greatly appreciated!

My Doctor said that Lyrica is reported to be more effective than Neurontin and supposedly works synergistically with pain medications. I am considering taking Lyrica in conjunction with MS Contin for back pain and sciatica when my current prescription of Zanaflex & Kadian is depleted. I would be interested in your experience as well. God be with you and may you find peace and pain relief.
