... I have been on it for 8 months now. Started at 50mg/day and now take 450mg/day (150mg/am, 300mg/pm). My sleep is getting better, but I still wake up in pain and it continues to get worse throughout the day. It's only been about 2 months at the 450mg dose. I'm getting some relief, but not enough. Now my doctor wants to switch me to Gabapentin. I just don't know if I should stay with Lyrica for a while longer or just make the switch. The other thing to mention: I also went through 2 major surgeries 5 months ago, which I think threw me into a HUGE fibro-flare. This is why I'm not sure if I have given it enough time or maybe I need to up the does? Or just make the switch? She also mentioned the possibility of trying Savella... All the side effects scare me!
