Hi I have GAD my husband had a stroke 9 weeks ago and it has made it it really bad,
I also have Fibromyakgia with Ibs wich is also much worse.
Mr Dr has just prescibed me Lyrica 25 max2 times a day, I am really scared of the side effects, as have tried several antidepressants with horrible side effects and no benefits, so have not been on anything for some time, I do take Lorazepam 0.5 once a day and am on Zopiclone 3.75 at night.
Just wondering how I am going to cope when my husband comes home, which could be in the next day or so.
I know we are all different but would appreciate views from anyone who is taking Lyrica.
My balance is already pretty bad from the fibromyalgia and with having to care for my husband do not want to make any worse.
We are elderly my husband is 82 and I am 78
Sorry for the long ramble, but feel very alone at the moment.
Does it have an GI issues
