i'm really worried tho as reading the info on side effects there seem to be so many is this drug really safe. i also got told to up my doseage of amytrptyline to 150 mg from 75mg and take the lyrica 25mg 4 times a day, then the dr told me that amyriptyline is bad for the overweight which i am and i don't know what to do. anyone help?
I have never heard of your other medication but I thought I would mention that I was worried at first about the side effects of Lyrica. I started out on 50mg 3 times a day and was moved up slowly to 150mg 3 times a day without experiencing any of the side effects. My luck is normally to get all of the side effects so I guess I got lucky on this medication. Starting at 25 mg per dose I would imagine you would get very few if any of the effects. My opinion is it happens much more often when a doctor starts you out on a very high dose right away, but that is just my opinion. I will say that the Lyrica has helped my joint pain from Lupus/chronic inflammation quite a bit. I've been taking it for 1 1/2 years. Good luck to you!
