Comment:
I definitely feel better than I did; but I am at a fairly high dose. Started on 75mg. 2x/daily not enuf! Also, a side effect for me that is extremely unpleasant is the increased appetite and subsequent wt. gain-over 10 lbs. in a month! My back and hips do NOT need to lug around the increased load-I have stayed A HEALTHY 125-130lbs.(TOPS)up until recently.

Comment:
I have chronic back pain from mid and low back disc. problems. I also had my neck fused at three levels. Pain has been a constant problem. I first tried Lyrica@ 75 mg twice daily and it only helped a little for the pain. I was told to increase it to three times a day and the pain has decreased by 50%.
