    I have decided to take myself off of Lyrica. i just dont think it has helped at all. I have 4 or 5 pills left at home and have only been taking 50mg a day at night. Anybody know how to ween yourself off of it? LIke should I just take it every other day now until gone??????

    It is hard to say what would be best.

    You are not taking a very big dose so you likely ok with your plan to alternate untill your pills are gone.

    I went cold turkey off of 450mg a day with no effect what so ever, but if you are senitive to drugs you had better get you doctors advise.

    Let us know how it goes. Denamy

    thanks for the advice, i have been on it for almost 3 weeks which i know isnt very long but there is no change so why waste my 40/month to continue to take it

    Usually 200 mg a day is what my doctor said is normal to take-I started at 75mg and worked up to 100mg twice a day. Sometimes I need 300mg a day. If I miss a dose I pay for it!!It's been a god-send to me! I wish it could help you too!
    Good luck!
