My husband was on Gabapentin and Lyrica both for chronic and acute pain both due to pathologic rib fractures caused by malignant pleural mesothelioma. He was also on several other medications so it was always hard to pinpoint which medication was causing problematic symptoms. But he did struggle with weakness, coordination issues, foggy thinking and a whole host of terrible side effects during the course of his treatment. If I could redo the last year of his life I would have opted for NO drugs that cause any known side effects but rather treat his symptoms as naturally and healthy as possible. I believe 110 % that the traditional treatments lead to his early and painful death and made the last months of his life not worth living. Very disappointed in western medicine right now.
