Hi motherlove, welcome... Lyrica is an anti-seizure medication that is also used for nerve pain.  You mentioned that you have osteoarthritis, do you also have osteoporosis?  These are two different medical disorders with very different symptoms and treatment.

 

Here's a very good video from Wellsphere on the difference between osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.

 

Also here's a link to the manufactures website on Lyrica, so you can read about it, and see the side effects etc.

 

Good luck and if you also have osteoporosis as well, let us know, or ask another question.

Hi motherlove, I forgot to mention that we do have an Osteoarthritis site if you want to ask your question there.  Here's the link to MyOsteoarthritis sites "ask a question."

 

Good luck...
