For all of you on Lyrica, does the effect it has on your symptoms decrease after a short while. I have been on 75mg twice a day for about 6 weeks. At first, I thought it was miracle drug and even thought of writing a poem or a song about it! Now I'm not so sure. I'm still sleeping better than I was but the fatigue and all over ache is back.

This med is so controversial. But, perhaps raising the dosage would help? I took the same thing as you but only for a week then mine doubled the next week (150mg/2x/day) and the third week it went to 225mg/2x/day which is where it is at now...and has been for 8 1/2 months. But, also, if may only work for a little bit after raising it each time so... it just depends on if you want to try that or not. At the level Im on now it took a while before I started hurting more again, but it could just be me. It has a different effect on everyone so it depends on your body. Hope this helps some!
