My dr responded to my message from last week and told me to up my dose from 25 to 50. So hopefully i will feel SOMETHING soon. Still have no real relief. Hoping my physical therapy sessions will help. Although i am suppose to be 3xs a week they only scheduled my 2xs anyway getting sidetracked lol. Just wanted to update :) scool

thanks myjoy! When i think about how slowly im going up in dose i cant help but wonder how longg it will take cause a lot of fibro patients are between 300 and 600 mgs im only on 50 now. But then again id much rather try and fight through the pain than start too high and have bad side effects! so far no real notable difference. But i think i will wait until about fri and see how my pain is and decide if i should call my dr then. but if it makes any sense to anyone mentally i feel differently on it. Its not a bad different or really even a good different just different. Idk i just cant explain it. Lol.

Hope this works out for you. I currently take 150 2x a day. It does help alot with nerve pain, don't notice much difference with muscle paint though. It also works wonders for my trigeminal neuralgia. Good luck!

((hugs)) I thankfully have not had any real side effects from it other than after i take it (whcih is at bedtime anyways) i get sleepy as heck. im sorry you have all those icky side fx to go with everything else! Does the vicodin help you? I know people keep telling me to be patient but the ONLY thing im on for pain is 50 mgs of lyrica! i have been on it for 7 days at 25mgs and 2 days at 50 and not a whole lot of relief. It takes me a couple hrs to stop the extreme stiffness and tenderness after waking up then throughout the day i have all these other aches and pains. I can only take so many baths a day i mean my parents pay the water bill. And pt just started up again but even that only provides short term relief. I want so badly to just call my dr again and see if possibly there is something they could do! they must be able to add something else by now?
