  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Fibromyalgia)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 75 mg Three times daily
Advice & Tips: Try to handle taking lower doses to handle your pain because the higher the dose the more likely you are to encounter side affects! My perfect dosage to almost completly wipe out my fibro pain is 300 mg 3 x's a day ( i was in the reasearch program for lyrica) but the side effect that always comes for me is the weight gain but on lower doses it does'nt effect my weight very much!

  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Fibromyalgia)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (Involuntary movement)
  • Adherence
    Never taken as prescribed
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Advice & Tips: I stopped taking this after discussing it with my doctor. I was having involuntary twitches and muscle movements that I found very disturbing and was concerned that they would become permanent. I found the Lyrica to only help on a minimal level. Yes it did take some of the pain away, but not enough to make it worth the side effects becoming permanent.
