Medical Aid Non Payment Of Lyrica

Medical Aid Non Payment Of Lyrica

My Medical Aid Fund advised that it will not pay for Lyrica as it hasn't been approved in South Africa. To expensive to continue using at own cost !

I was prescribed Lyrica about 8 years ago when my condition started and It almost blinded me!!!! Be very careful with that medicine. I couldn't take it and my eye sight has never been the same since taking it

Lyrica gave me horrible migraines, I'm now using the 75 mg Fentanyl patches which work better with much less side effects.
