    Can anybody talk about how they are taking Lyrica? I mean atbeadtime or throughout the day. How much are you taking a day?
    sadecakes responded:
    Hi Marylyce, My Lyrica are 75mg each and I can take 3 a day. I take1-3 per day, but lately I take all three (because I've been in a flare for a while now). When I was prescribed Lyrica, I was told to take it before I go to bed and then w food be ause it can make you tired. I haven't found that it makes me tired but lately it doesnt appear to be strong enough to eliminate the pain. So, I'm going to need to ask my dr about raising the amount or changing meds.

    I hope this helps, Susan
