In brief: SEDATION

Sedation is the main side effect especially at that dose.
Try to take at bedtime or discuss with your doctor trying to reduce the dose

In brief: May need dose adjust

Lyrica (pregabalin) is not a conventional drug for GAD.
If sedation does not resolve in 6 to 8 weeks then the dose is too high or must be taken only at night time. It is more likely to sedate when combined with Diazepam .
