I have been taking lyrica, tramodal and flexeril for neuropathic pain due to 2 herniated discs and a tear in the disc @ L1 for 9 months. I have decreased my dose from 300mg to 100mg because of the side effects but I can not get to a lower dose because of the pain. my husband and I would like to start a family and I would like to know what the risks and effects of taking lyrica during pregnancy.

I was 3 months pregnant with my 2nd child. I had no idea I was pregnant and was taking a high dose of lyrica. I had a missed miscarriage at 3 months and had to have a dnc. I have always been a healthy eater. I didn't smoke or drink. I was only taking lyrica. I know it could have been tons of things that could have caused my miscarriage, but I believe in my heart that it was lyrica. I wish I would have known I was pregnant. I have had another child since. I was taken off the meds and had no problems. I continue to take lyrica now. It really helps my pain, but I do not recommend taking while pregnant!
