    I saw where you posted that lyrica has helped you a lot. How much lyrica do you take, if you don't mind my asking? I have spinal stenosis and a lot of low back pain. My doc just increased the lyrica but I see no difference yet.

    I saw this thread and I know it wasn't addressed to me but I decided to answer anyways.

    I have been taking Lyrica for almost 3 years now. I take 300mg twice a day. It helps me with nerve pain, my IBS and stomach issues.

    I noticed the help to the stomach and the IBS but it did take till I got to the high mgs before it worked for the pain.

    It was worth it for me to stick it out.

    What amount are you on? Are you going up in dosage slowly? Do you have any side effects?
