Has anyone taken Lyrica to combat the neuropathy caused by FOLFOX (Oxaliplatin). Has it worked? Does it has its own side effects? What dose were you taking?

I take 100 mg of Lyrica twice a day for nerve pain and damage caused by surgery. Didn't have FOLFOX, this treatment came about after I was diagnosed. But the Lyrica has helped my nerve pain once we got the dosage right. Side effects are balance problems (very slight) and a 'high' feeling which unfortunately left after two days! I could tell no difference until I hit 200 mg though. I have a pretty high tolerance for meds.

Hope this helps!
Wendy
