      [B][FONT=Georgia][COLOR=purple]I have a question for anyone here that’s taking Lyrica, do you feel like your tired a lot. I’ve noticed since I started taking it, I seem to feel tired a lot. One of my friends on another forum has Fibromyalga & her Dr gave her samples of Lyrica to take. She also said she feels tired alot more often, I’m thinking maybe this is a side effect of Lyrica. Anyone else have the tiredness problem ?[/COLOR][/FONT][/B]

      Terry how much are you taking and when are you taking it? Also remember it takes a while for your body to adjust to the pill. I take 75 mg in the AM if needed and 75 mg in Afternoon if needed and 150mg a bedtime. I find it helps calm me down. I find I am less stressed when I take the pills. Especially at bedtime when I want to sleep it helps me fall asleep.

      [FONT=Georgia][SIZE=3]I’m currently taking 50 mg 3 x a day, there were only 21 pills on the 50 mg strength. Then due to the amnt of pain this is causing me I have the 100 mg strength to go to. This neuropathy pain for the last few days has really unloaded on my hands & feet. My hands have had numbness from my fingers back into my hands. The same thing is happening to my feet, numbeness from my toes back into my feet. I got out of bed this morning & almost fell again, :confused: my feet just didn’t want to coperate with me getting up walking. I’m hoping I’ll soon get some relief from this.[/SIZE][/FONT]

      Lyrica does take some time to get used to. Compared to Neurontin/Gabapentin though it is much better. Perhaps you could take more before bed versus the morning or something like that. Ask your Dr.
