Lyrica is awesome for anxiety. I compare it to about .5 - 1 mg of Ativan at its highest dose. I would start slow-about 150 mg twice a day. As you slowly titrate up, you'll notice some 'odd thinking' which usually wanes. I went up to 600 mg with minimal side effects. It has a low side effect profile, so that makes it attractive.
Let me know if you decide to go on it.
PS-it will augment an SSRI if you decide to take one.
