    450mg daily Taken for nerve damage pain associated with Neurofibromatosis T1. Side effects include anxiety if a dose is missed. Other side effects include increased apatite and increased energy. Also to note Lyrica works well for general anxiety and I have been able to stop all other medications for anxiety.

I gained 23 lbs in 1 month, couldn't fall asleep and had very blurry vision. It was effective with pain control reduction by 80%, which has been the most reduction I've had. But the side effects are too great. I had to wean off L ... Show Full Comment
