Lyrica Adventure

I have decided that I'll most likely stop taking Lyrica. I had gone up to 100mg, but it made me so incredibly drowsy and fatigued for a couple of weeks that I could barely function. It's disappointing, but it's not a decision I took lightly. It just means Lyrica isn't right for me. I am still on 50mg, but since it doesn't work effectively at such a low dose, and I don't really care for the side effects in general, I think I'll most likely slowly stop taking it altogether. 
I've heard of a few other drugs that I can try, but of course none from my rheumatologist. That is very frustrating. I'm looking into other resources.
I feel a little discouraged today, but tomorrow is my biblical counseling session, and that always goes well and reminds me to keep my focus on the Lord.
