I was recently put on pregabalin/lyrica for anxiety and pain (muscle pain and headaches). According to my doctor as well as the info on the drug manufacturers site there is little evidence that a doze over 300mg should be of any benefit. However, the documentation that comes with the bottle mentions that some people in rare cases get benefits that outweighs the side effects at dozes up to 600mg.
During the past three months I have been experimenting with various daily dozes and have found that I need at least 500-600mg to get the benefits from the drug and at that level (600 - 650mg) its actually really good. If I take the medication in the evening and before I go to bed I have found that most of the side effects (drowsiness) are gone by the morning and if I take it at this level all my problems with anxiety is gone and I get at least 60-70% pain reduction.
Anyone out there with experience of taking this medication at this high level?
What are the longer term side effects?
How much can one take at one time before it starts getting dangerous for your body (kidneys, lever etc)?
Any feedback would be much appreciated
