I used Lyrica for a short time.  One of the listed side effects hit me so badly, that my doctor told me to stop taking it after just three months.

Hello, this is Kathy Adams. I was wondering if anyone is taking Lyrica for their seizure disorder. I am having a bad side effect for Lyrica. I was wondering if anyone else was having problems with it. I didn't know that Lyrica was also for seizures. Please answer me back. Thank you

A lot of antibiotics don't work for me anymore and I have a team of specialist around me all the time they have told me the best thing you can do for a sinus infection is to stand over a pot of boiling water and let the steam clear it out, but it is hard to do, but it is affective. I hope you get to feeling better

Keppra has been doing well for me. I am having fewer and fewer issues as time goes on with this med. I am having very few side affects at this point. I'm kind of excited but fewer isn't zero.
