    Hi Marlyce,

    The first time I took Lyrica, it put me to sleep immediately. I believe that was only a 50mg dose.

    I now take Lyrica every 8 hours (100mg). My doctor prescribed it at 150mg, but it was too strong and made me quite drowsy. Don't know about Savella but will follow this thread to see what others have to say.

    Good luck and soft hugs to you,

    maggie
