What is the therapeutic dose of LYRICA® in the management of neuropathic pain?
The dose range is 75 to 300 mg twice daily.
Careful dose titration to the highest tolerable dose is the most appropriate approach in clinical practice.
Treatment should be initiated at a dose of 75 mg BD.
Based on individual patient response and tolerability, the dosage may be increased to
150 mg BD after 3 to 7 days, and if needed, to a maximum dose of 300 mg BD after an additional 7-days.
Dosage modification is required in patients with renal impairment (see table below).
