im on lyrica right now, 150mg twice a day... i dont have pain as often i can say that but i still need a narcotic for intense break thru pain.
My advice, if you do take lyrica DO NOT drink with it... ive had to pretty much quit drinking because it makes me like narcoleptic lol i fell asleep while eating, talking, walking to my door... alcohol and lyrica are a bad combination but it does lessen the frequency of the pain or at least it did for me.
Let the sun shine and everything will be fine
