How long does it take for Lyrica to work? I just started it and didn't get much sleep from the pain last night. I did read somwe here that it takes time.

I would try it a few more days but I think it's suppose to work pretty fast.
Keep in mind that drugs work differently for everyone.

It can take up to a month for full effects to be felt. And then you may still require doseage increases before getting the full benefits.

What is your dosage? It does take time for it to work and to get the right dosage without having problems with side effects. Please let me know the dose and how often you are taking it.

Please donate to help Chronicpainsite.com continue to help others.

My journey with chronic pain began over 30 years ago, while as a young nurse working spinal rehab, I injured my back lifting a patient. I am now fused from L2-S1. I have multiple thoracic and cervical issues. I'm a retired RN/PA and I know and understand the frustrations on both ends of the treatment spectrum of dealing with CP. It's been my goal since 2008, when we started this site, to reach out and help as many people in pain as possible. We will continue the fight as long as we can. Please, if you can help us continue to help you and others, donate. Thank you.

Normally you start on a dosage MUCH lower that what is most effective.  I couldn't live without my Lyrica.  Normally I can manage to only get the electrocution form of pain only a few times a month, but if I'm late by several hours on Lyrica, its like I've stepped into a severe lightning storm.
Ankylosing spondylitis resulting in fusion of entire cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and SI joints, osteoporosis, 5 compression fractures, severe stenosis of spinal cord & nerve root compression, cervical myelopathy, radiculopathy, bruise & permanent deformation of spinal cord, incomplete spinal cord injury, postlaminectomy syndrome of cervical region, chronic nerve and orthopedic severe pain, and bilateral carpal tunnel. Asthma, GERD, high blood pressure, high tryglycrides, diverticulosis, recurrent pneumonia, anemia, hypertension, chronic dry eye and mouth. Need hip & knee replacement and fusion of both feet. Already had 11 surgeries including 5 orthopedic & 1 neurosurgery.

I was on lyrica for a few weeks, but had to switch to gabapentin, because lyrica didn't work for me at all, it also affected my moods and caused severe bruising.
Chronic pain sufferer for several years. 3 Bulging disks, narrowing nerve canals, bone spurs, spondylosis, and arthritis(just beginning) in my neck. Bulging disk at the l5/s1 along with a small tear in the disk, sciatica issues, foraminal stenosis on the left and right side of the l5-s1, and disc dessication. Also recently diagnosed with fibro.
