I am on Lyrica right now. 225mg twice a day. I started at 75mg twice/day then moved to 150mg twice/day. When I first started with the 75 it made me very sleepy and drowsy. I continued on though. When I moved up a week later to the 150mg, it made me feel out-of-it-like. Like I was disconnected from the world or something. I got forgetful some also. I wasnt as sleepy as the first week though. And I didnt have much drowsiness. I had headaches alot though. Then, last week I moved to the 225mg, I havent been sleepy, drowsy, or much of anything else.
I was a bit slow, but I could handle that. Since I started taking Lyrica I have been able to sleep at night. All night! And I wake up feeling like I slept! (not like I got beaten in my sleep!) I wake up feeling fine!
This week on the 225mg twice/day, I have felt more energized. A bit hyper probably! But, maybe its because I feel so much better, its hard to tell since I am not used to that! But, I am feeling better and sleeping better. Once I got past the 2 weeks of side-effects I have felt so much better!
This is just my experience. People react differently so...but it has done some good for me. I hope it can for others as well! Take care! And Happy Holidays to All!
