Customer Question

Hello Dr. Bray. I am seeing a psychiatrist for extreme anxiety and started taking Lyrica (pregablin) 4 months ago. I no longer take any other medications. I am seeing good potential results with Lyrica and no side effects.Question... assuming I feel ok at each dosage increase, what would you suggest is the absolute highest dosage in taking Lyrica for anxiety? Thank you!

Hello-Actually we advise LOWEST EFFECTIVE dose ...We look at EFFECTIVE being important of couse but also would want you to not be overly sedated or have trouble with side effects..I think 75 to 150mg twice a day to be most likely helpful range for you!!I hope that this is helpful for youLet me know if you have further questions or concernsBest regards!Anthony Bray MD
