Thanks for posting in Heath care magic.

You feel dizziness and drowsiness confusion because you use Lyrica. Those are the side effects of Lyrica. I suggest you to use Amitriptyline(Laroxyl) 25mg 1 hour before you sleep. Of course Laroxyl has its side effects but you will not feel dizziness and drowsiness confusion anymore.

Take care.
