I've been decreasing lyrica by 25mg at a time over a very long time. Right now I'm on 50mg AM and PM. I'm very sensitive to medicine changes. I'm about 8 days into a 25mg decrease and my achey legs are brutal. Very severe. Its has been so hard to just give up and take the dose, but I'm always concerned about the sleepyness and weight gain and cognitive problems I get from lyrica. I dropped 100mg over the past year and those issued improved, but right now I'm useless! And I'm taking extra tramadol to try to ease the achey legs. Sigh.....I don't even know of I should get off this drug and Dr says just do what you want. Plus I have surgery next week so I had to quite magnesium , which helps my pain a lot. The last 8 days have been hell. I dont want it to be for nothing!
