I haven't heard of Lyrica for Neuropathy.  I've had peripheral neuropathy in my lower legs and feet since 1995, and only found Neurontin (Gabapentin) enough just to take the "edge" off of the pain.

I've recently been given Cymbalta, but after reading about it on the website, I'm extremely reluctant to take it.

The only other "medication" that has offered more relief for me at night, has been a little Cannibas, but only a little, and only at night.

Lyrica?  Made me ill, nauseas and worse loss of balance.

Cymbalta, the same as above.

Double dose of my Gabapentin?  Now it doesn't work at ALL anymore.

Trileptal?  Made me more insomniac than I am now, and more "aware" of how much my legs/feet/ankles hurt.

All of those are some kind of anti-depressents of some kind or another, and my system doesn't react or respond well to them.

The only relief I really get is at night when I take Elavil (25mg.) and Lorazopam (2mg.).  And on occassion a hit of some herb.  Other than that, they hurt constantly.
