Hello sorry for the late reply but i was offline,

Anyway in regards ***** ***** previous conversation as i said previously you can increase the dose of lyrica to 50 mg twice a day while decreasing the dose of neurontin to 100 mg thrice a day (from 300 mg 3xday), then after one - two days on this regimen you can increase to 75 mg twice a day and neurontin would be stopped. But as i said previously, you can ask your doctor about a direct switch between neurontin and lyrica without any tapering schedule of neurontin. This can be done safely in patients as both neurontin and lyrica are sister drugs.

Do you have any more questions?
