Been taking Lyrica for about 3 weeks now working my way up to 150mg dose. I don't feel anything yet. How long did it take others to feel something on this? How many mg?

      I actually had a really bad reaction to Lyrica. It caused temporary paralysis on one side of my body. So if you get the tingles, be aware of what's going on in your body. Though I had this after a few days of taking it so you're probs out of the woods by now. But always be conscious of what's happening in your body.

      I felt it at 100 after about a month but everyone is different! I’m at 150 twice a day now and I occasionally have a pain free day but I likely need a higher dose. Issue is the side effects get worse at higher doses! Good luck!!!

        @Belugabear hi what kind of side of effects do you experience during the day?

          @Dub2.0 tiredness and brain fog got a lot worse on it! I also gained 80 pounds on it. But apparently once you go off the med it’s easy to reverse those side effects

      Yeah 3 months is for any medication….. I went to 225 to 150 & I feel like 150 won’t take all the pain away but make it manageable. I hope that your pain gets better soon!

      About three months. 😞 Try to be patient. 🙏
