    I have recently been put on Pregablin for my foot pain. I read that it is being used to treat Fibromyalgia. Anyone taking Pregablin? I am taking 300 mg. 3 times a day - so sleepy at first - now just sleeping great at night! Hasn't done anything for pain in my feet yet. Only side effect that I am really having is swelling in my ankles.
    Let me know if any of you are taking Pregablin and how you are doing and dosage you are taking.
    Thanks.

    I have just started Lyrica a week ago for Fibromyalgia and I can honestly say this may just be my miracle drug! I now know what it feels like to be pain free! I am taking 50mg. 3x a day for a week and then 150mg 2x a day. Mild side effects- dizziness, drowsiness, head pressure and blurry vision. But after being on it going on my 6th day the side effects are subsiding.
