Follow the generic for Lyrica (Pregabalin) instructions on the label exactly, or use it as your doctor has advised. Never use more, less, or for a longer period of time than advised.
Read any drug guides or instruction sheets and adhere to all instructions on your prescription label. On occasion, your doctor could adjust your dosage. Follow the medication's instructions exactly.
Every day, at the same time, with or without meals, take the medication.
Do not chew, break, or crush an extended-release pill; instead, swallow it whole.
Carefully measure liquid medication. Use pharmaceutical dose-measuring equipment or the dosage syringe that is given (not a kitchen spoon).
Even if you feel fine, avoid abruptly stopping your pregabalin dosage. Stopping abruptly might result in unpleasant withdrawal symptoms or more frequent seizures. Follow your doctor's advice regarding your dosage for at least one week before fully stopping.
Wear or carry medical identification so others know you take seizure medicine in case of an emergency.
