i was taking 150mg lyrica 3 or 4 times a day and i wanted to get off of them for various reasons,
i proceeded doing this, i asked for an Rx for 2 differnt srenghths, 50mg and 75mg i got the 75mg filled at the pharmacy believing that i could not do this but i had to.
i went from 150mg to using the 75's, 75x75=150 so, i tried to take 1 less every other time i was going to take the 150mg, it worked, so, in the AM i took 150mg, at noon i took 75 mg and evening i took 150mg, and at bedtime 75mg it was enough to function, once this was working for a few days i began the day with 75mg, if needed i could take another,but i didnt, after awhile i was taking 75mg 3 times a day, then once that was okay i took 2 and then 1, i am dealing with severe pain so it was not easy,
it really was not, i was so dependant on the lyrica but you know, once i was off of them i realized that it was the best thing i ever did for myself, it has changed my mood, my attitude, my husband likes me better :) off lyrica.
if you want to get off of them think of the advantages once you are off of them, tell yourself, you are doing you a favour, i did that, i had to play little mind games and also telling my body that i was in control, my body was not, hey, it was a constant mental stuggle but it worked, telling ME who was in control gave me that edge :)
