  • Lyrica tabkets

    I have been on these tablets now for 6 weeks for sciatic nerve pain.  They are having some effect so I'm keeping on with them for the time being.  I take 400mg per day.  Unfortunately the worst side effect seems to be chronic constipation.  Anyone else found this to be the case?
