Everywhere I've read, the maximum recommended dosage for Lyrica is 600mg but I take 3 times that/day. Is anyone else up there with me in dosage and if so, are you having side effects from it?
Richard; Even on the FDA site and many current studies that I can find I do not see where anyone should be taking this much Lyrica the maximum is 600mg and from what the manufacturer and FDA say this is a copy and paste from our site that rarely are there benefits of taking over 450mg daily I really think you should check with your Pharmacist, And see if they know of anything newer going on that I can't find which is in the same books they are going to use. Then check with your doctor and have the doctor double check, either way, I have no idea how you are dealing with the side effects of this medication at this dose. here is a copy and paste from this site drugs.com.(( treatment with doses above 450 mg/day is not recommended))) And even at that, I would get a second oppiniun. Remember if they start to drop dose it has to be done slowly. GOOD LUCK DO SOMETHING TODAY!!! Chuck1957
