Dangers of taking Lyrica

Hey there, I’ve only been on Lyrica for 6 days now, and the 75mg dose feels too strong for me. I’m taking one capsule a day. Can I split the capsule in half and take half a day? Also, if I decide to stop taking Lyrica altogether, how long does it take to taper off completely? Is it safe to take half of the 75mg dose since it’s not listed on the patient info sheet? Thanks!

Adjusting your Lyrica dosage should be advised from your doctor. Splitting capsules or changing your dosage without medical advice can be risky. Your doctor can guide you on tapering off Lyrica safely if you decide to stop.
