a question



  • Hi Margaret,

    My doc put me on 150 mg of Lyrica a day - the first 75 mg capsule I took put me to sleep. So, I now take 50 mg doses 3 times a day. At first, I thought it was helping with my leg pain but now I think it's useless. I'll continue to take it though along with my tramadol -- some times good, some days "not so good." I just did my grocery shopping this afternoon and helped myself to the electric cart, propping my left foot up on the top of the cart -- what a sight I must be(LOL!). I'm also doing exercises (stretches) - it seems to help some days and the last few days I've been in quite a bit of pain and the same exercises I've been doing where a little more painful. Who knows?! We all just keep trucking along trying to ace this pain. Take care.
