I've tried lyrica but it did not help me. I was on gaba for 10 yrs (just weaned off) and I was taking 1800mg a day. I'm not a dr but 3000mg a day sounds like way too much. Talk to your doc. Give it a try. It may work for you. Gotta love medicare (Im on it too).

If you're using the gabapentin for nerve pain 3000mg throughout the day is normal. I was on 3600mg daily, 1200mg 3x a day. However, only taking 150mg 2x a day of lyrica you may want to start out with a lesser dose of gabapentin to see if it works and if not your Dr can then increase it to the max dose of 3600mg.
