Dosage Increase

I am doubling the amount of Lyrica I take now, which is probably going to do some nasty things to me for a little while. Keep me in mind in your thoughts if you don't mind.


It's later in the day now. I played tennis with my friend Amy as we try to do weekly, and man was it weird. Have you ever engaged in athletic activity and performed reasonably well (skill-wise and endurance-wise) while simultaneously having to concentrate to not nod off to sleep in the middle of it? That's Lyrica. Hopefully the sleep part of it will fade as it started doing when I was taking one pill for a while. Posted by Andy at September 13, 2006 03:11 PM to the Health category

Hope it's turning out better as time passes. Does your Doc say this is normal?

Side effects suck, but hopefully it's balancing out with treating what it's supposed to treat. Especially if side effects fade with time as your body gets used to it. Hang in there.

Sounds nasty. I hope it's just a matter of getting acclimated.

That's how it worked when I started the med, so hopefully that will be true of the higher dosage as well. There is a substantial upside to this medicine if the side effects abate.
