  • 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!

Advice & Tips: Daily take 1600 mg of Tegretol began to change over to Lyrica last dosage last night Dr prescribed 1x 75mg tab instead of 300 mg Tegretol + balance of Tegretol 600mg x 3 days,on 4th day 1 Lyrica + 300 mg Tegretol (lunch time) 600 mg Tegretol + 1 x 75 mg Lyrica ( evening) DAY 6 - 9 * 300 mg Tegretol + 1 x 75 mg Lyrica DAY10-12 *150 mg Lyrica (lunch time)Tegretol 300mg + 150 mg Lyrica (evening) I will replace 1600 mg Tegretol with 300 mg Tegretol + 300 mg Lyrica,hoping this works out What does everyone think of Lyrica ? & what do you think of dosage,is 300mg enough to replace 1200 mg of Tegretol ?

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for fibromyalgia)
  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for generalized anxiety disorder)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Dosage: 50 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This was very helpful for me, and I had good results with it. My advice: be consistent in taking Lyrica. Do not skip doses. I know that it gets old, always having to take a handful of pills every time you turn around. But this is about restoring your quality of life. This medication was like standing in the sunshine after having been locked up in a damp cave. It makes that much difference!
Cost: $50-99 monthly

  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Advice & Tips: As the combinations with external inhuman experiments and interference's created mixed inaccurate medical input related to any medications I have taken prior to long breaks of input on medication use in the long gaps since 2011.
