> if lyrica has a heavy anti-anxiety effect, does it then have a big drowsiness, sedative effect? i have already have so much fatigue, i do not want it to worsen...

I have a terrible problem with fatigue as well.

I wouldn't say Lyrica caused me 'heavy' sedation. When I first started it I took it at night only and within a few hours of taking it I would enjoy a very deep a restful sleep. A little bit groggy in the morning but not in a bad way. More in a goofy, stumble-drunk way. I would have a day or two of reduced anxiety after one dose of 50-75mg of Lyrica in the beginning.

I really took my time with this drug as I am phobic of anything that could be sedating. I was not committed to at all at first just kind of checking it out.

It became rather energizing for a time and now it feels as though it has more of a leveling effect on my moods and energy. It does have very nice anti-depressant effects for me.

I have been on Lyrica for about 9-10 months.

Take Care,
