I know patients who have taken as high as 3600 mg per day. For myself - I only went as high as 1800 mg per day before deciding it wasn't the right med for me. It caused problems with my speech - with word retrieval. I constantly had a word on the tip of my tongue and could not remember it!! I now take Lyrica, and it works very well. I'm fortunate in that my insurance will pay for the Lyrica. It only did after I tried Gabapentin and had a major side effect that rendered it unsuitable for me. Take care - EJ23
