What are the side effects of lyrica?

What are the side effects of lyrica. I have had chronic back pain for 4 years. I ve had two spine fusions - from L5 to L2 I ve doctored with a specialist with 8 epidurals and 5 SI injections to no relief. I am now with a pain specialist who prescribed hydrocordon ( 10/325 ) about three months ago and I am up to 8 a day. He now has prescribed oxycontin 10mg and Lyrica 50 mg. I have only been on the last two for two weeks, but am very concerned about addiction. I am considering medical marajauna. How can you help?
