Lyrica for Fibro

Posts: 148

I take 300mg a day.

Was up to 900

but it F'd me up BAD and I mean BAD

At 300 I don't have side effects but it does "seem" to help.

What are your thoughts?

I take a WHOLE BUNCH of other stuff for Pain so I'm not sure of the Lyrica.

Hi. I take 150 mg 3 x's a day. From what I know it is the max. It affects my mind but it does take away my knife slicing pain between my legs and strange itching. I do have a lot of pain in other areas but Lyrica treats nerve pain. To me it is worth having at least this pain/itching out of the picture. I believe it helps with some front thigh pain. I still take many other meds and Vicodin. I wish you the best. I'm on about ten meds not including any vitamins or MiraLax to keep from getting constipated. If I can help any further, please let me know. ~Nickie

Hello EK,

I am sorry to hear that meds are playing havoc with your well-being.

I have taken Lyrica (150mg which is very low compared to most here) for nearly 5 years and with very little side effects (nothing serious or lasting).

Could your ""messed up"" feelings possibly be from the combination of pain drugs you are ingesting ? If I were you, I would have a serious talk with my dr. regarding this and the nasty feelings you are going thru.
