My doctor just put me on 25g Lyrica 2x per day for leg nerve pain. How long does it take to work?

25 mg is probably not going to be enough, you should have it increased once you're used to the 25. Most of us took at least 75 twice a day. It doesn't take long to work if you have enough.

The 25mg is helping a little bit however I'm still in pain. I will ask to have the dosage increased when I see my dr.next week. Thanks!

I am on lyrica 25 mg 3 times daily for nerve/fibromyalgia How long it takes to work? and does it work well with other meds?

I agree, this is a low dose, after no more than 3-days you should be feeling it work.

It might take it sometime. Depends on what thy are treating with it. I am on 300 mg twice a day (for restless leg and an they ache all the time), it makes me tired if I take both of them. But it does help the legs a lot! If your lucky enough to get on a least 100-150 mg a day, you should feel some relief ! Prayers for you, Melinda!

I take 50mg twice a day for radiating nerve pain from low back surgery that failed. It is prescribed for three times a day but I find I only need it twice. It has a subtle effect that lessens the severity but like almost all other meds they never get rid of it completely, it just takes the edge off.
