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.
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.
