My Mood: Scared
I was prescribed lyrica for SA and GAD. Doctor wanted me only to take this medicine PRN to avoid tolerance and withdrawals.

- Took first time 150mg at once. Felt nothing. Woke up refreshed, but for the first time in my life my mood was stable. Lyrica might have mood stabilization properties.

10 days after I decided to try again

- Took 300mg at once. Felt nothing. 1 hour later took more 150mg. I was feeling spaced out and dizzy. No effects on anxiety, no euphoria, nothing. I was just acting like drunk.
Didn't take more as I heard that it can cause seizures in doses more than 600mg.

This drug didn't help my SA or GAD. Total useless for me, I seem to have a natural tolerance to every substance thus the big dosage.
