I am 9 months post op Decompression of L4L5S1.
4 months post op from a PLIF L4L5S1.
After almost a 2 month battle with my insurance company, I was finally given permission to use Lyrica for neuropathy. My PCP gave me 150mg twice daily.
My problem is that I think the dose is too high. When I took samples post op, I used 75mg 3 times daily. Now I'm doubling that and it's playing games with my head. 8} I feel like I'm drunk and my mouth is going 90mph, then I crash. I hate it.
I'm so grateful I got the meds and don't want to complain, but it's tripping me out. Plus the money factor. They weren't cheap. I know when these are gone, I am going to ask for another script for 75mg 3 times daily.
Is there anyway I can open the capsules and use half. I tried to twist open the caps and they won't budge.
Thanks and blessings, Kathy
