First, you are so wonderful to post about conditions to give people an idea of their options.
I just wanted to point out since I have a neuralgia and take elavil for it that Neurontin/Lyrica do not work for everyone. If Neurontin doesn't help, it is unlikely Lyrica will since they are the same type of drug, Lyrica is a second generation.
Makes more sense to change to a different class of drug before spending another 1-2 months waiting to see if Lyrica will help. People usually change within classes due to side effects eg change from elavil to Pamelor if they are having good pain relief.
Elavil helps me, neurontin does nothing. Other people have a different response.
Love getting your blog feeds in my mail.
