Question: 
What are the approved doses for LYRICA?
Answer: 

Your doctor will decide what dose is appropriate for you. Everyone is unique and may respond to LYRICA differently. LYRICA is available in multiple strengths. Your doctor can adjust your dose to help you get the most from treatment. So it’s important to discuss your progress and any side effects you may feel with your doctor, especially in the first few weeks.

The approved doses for the different indications of LYRICA are as follows:
