Sorry that I haven't written anything here in the forum in the past months. I'm in pain - my wrists and my right leg hurt soooo much so that I nearly can't type on a keyboard.
My doctor prescribed LYRICA because he thinks my pain is neuropathic.
Does anyone of you have experience with this medication? I'm quite desperate because of my pain, so I really want to take it.
But I'm also so afraid that this drug will dry out my eyes. My eye pain is bearable at the moment (thank for cyclosporin in liposome), but I would really freak out if my severe dry eye pain would come back. or worst case:
Lyrica will not bring relieve for my neuropatic pain, but will dry out my eyes??
My pharmicist told me that if I'm prestressed with dry eyes it is very likely that Lyrica will dry out my eyes. But for not prestressed people drye eyes are a very seldom side effect....
What sould I do? I'm really desperate.... These damn dry eyes!!!
