I only take 150 mgs of lyrica 1 time a day (at bedtime). Any more, and I would never get out of bed. Of course, I take other meds that make me sleepy too. But I cannot imagine 900 mgs in a day. I know mine works, because when I ran out I hurt soooooo bad!! shocked
I hope you will double check that amount with a doc before taking it. That is scary to me.

Funny I just came on here to ask about a major side effect I seem to be having from
Lyrica. I'm on 300 mgs 2X's a day and my feet are swelling something awful. I just called my Dr and she wants to back me down to 225 mgs 2X's a day to see if that reduces the swelling. I have not increased my salt in take and I am trying to drink a good amount of water a day.

Taking it one day at a time....
