Lyrica: Addictive or Habit forming?

Posted by Rauter on October 1, 2009, at 3:07:28

I am on Lyrica for the past one year or more. It really has a mood brightening effect and if I go over 600mg, I get the effects which some people describe as ecstatic.

But the problem now is, I can not stop this medication. Not because I am having any physical withdrawal symptoms, but if I dont take the med, I am depressed with zero motivation.

I dont take any other meds now though I was on SSRIs for quite a long time prior to Lyrica. Now, this highly expensive med is the only thing that keeps me going. When I stop, I can only stay in my apartment without any motivation to do anything or even to step out of the house.

I am a laid-off worker and the cost of Lyrica sucks. I wish to get rid off this burden. Is there any other med which will be motivating like Lyrica is, but less expensive than this?
