I rang my doctor yesterday concerning an increase of dosage for Lyrica. Originally I was informed it has to be at 25mg increase about every week. I was already on 50mg and was about to start on 75mg. My doctor said I can jump to 50mg increase. So because of my pain I was glad to jump 50mg. Last night I was like a zombie!
I was very drowsy and slept like a log for 9hrs with the exception of a toilet break at 1am.
This morning I took 100mg and within 2hrs I felt drowsy, weak and a little breathless. I didn't feel very well at all so I decided to come back home. I've had lunch but that hasn't made any difference to how I feel. All the side of my face was stinging, my teeth aching along with electric shocks. It wouldn't stop. My face even felt numb.
I'm not taking 100mg straight off again tonight. I'm just jumping to 75mg. This isn't good. I guess it affects different people different ways.
Anyone else jump in 50mg of Lyrica like that? Did you feel the same as above?
