    Hi all,
    I am taking Lyrica for FM, right now I am at 75mg once a day, next week it will go up to 100mg once a day. So far I haven't noticed any improvement, but from reading the boards I am on a very low dose, I guess. I am wondering if anyone else has taken it in a once a day dosage. Everything I see posted is about taking it 2 or 3 times a day. What do you all think?
    I am really hoping this helps, I am going thru one of those times where I am really hurting and a lot of energy is ogin into hurting and thinking about the pain.
    Thanks in advance,
    Wendy

    I take 50 mgs 3 times a day, but it is interfering with my Xyrem. I am seeing both of my doctors on Thursday and I suspect my Xyrem doc will tell me to stop taking it.

    Even though I've been on it for at least a month, it continues to make me sleepy. I agree that my dose is low, but if it were increased I'd probably sleep 24/7.

    Is anyone getting any pain relief and if so, what is your dose?

    I've been taking lyrica for 1 month now. I take .75 mg. one hour before bed and really helps relax me and sleeping much better.

    I started with 75 mg twice a day and went up to 150 mg twice a day. It took a while, but I am finally getting some help. Give it a couple of months before you give up.

    For the pain I take the lyrica, baclofen and tramodol. Together they are making a difference. I'm still in pain, but it is better.

    Good luck.

    God Bless.
