I mentioned to my family dr. that my rheum. wanted me to take lyrica and she said it works good for pain. However she shook her head when I told her he wanted me on 150 mg one wk then add another 150 mg the second. She agreed it was too high a dose to start and 75 mg is best to start and go to the 150 dose. So once I get my stomach feeling better I am going to start it.
