Taking Lyrica may also cause you to develop swelling, especially in the arms, hands, feet, ankles, and lower legs. In some cases, particularly if swelling occurs in the tongue, mouth, or throat, it can be serious. Tell your doctor right away if you develop any swelling.
Ironically, some people who take Lyrica for pain develop sore muscles. Vision problems can occur, too. In rare cases, people who take Lyrica start to have suicidal thoughts. If you develop these or any other serious side effects while taking Lyrica, call your doctor right away. Other long-term side effects from taking Lyrica may be possible.
