The drug has a half life of six hours so it is best to take it spaced out during the day. I too have trouble staying awake during the day and am presently trying to find the right spaced out doseage for me. I took Lyrica about two years ago and I took 25 mg in the am and 100 mg at night. It didn't work for me. This time I started with 25 three times a day then went up to 50 three times a day but got too sleepy. So now I am at 25 in the am, 50 at around 3pm and 50 in the evening around 9 or 10. I'll let you know how I do in the end.

Believe in yourself. Be kind to fellow humans and animals. Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help. I will be there.
