Taking 2 - 75mg daily and have definitely not reached orgasm since doubling from 1 - 75mg daily several weeks ago. Can't really remember that last time.

Lirica vs Cymbalta
I had multiple horse incidents as a kid and early teens--bucked off--bitten--kicked--stepped on, I live i the city now! My neck and lower spine were irreparably damaged.
I have been on Gabapentin for years now and the good 'ol doctor wants to add Lyrica. I have read enough here to want to change my mind. She wants to start me at 150mg twice a day and work up from there instead of at the higher dose first. Do you think it would have worked better for you this way? I am on so many pain med
