Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all

just bit of a update! Been ok this week couple of tiny panic attacks! Best thing I've done is stop taking sertraline to think how I felt to what I feel now is mind blowing! 

Only problem am having with pregabalin is when I wake up always got a headache which goes in a couple of hours but it's my legs I have problems with! Wake up and they like jelly they like my headache comes round in a few hours but have a feeling like I've walked miles and miles through out the day like ive got no power in them! Wierd feeling

I hope ur all well

Now taking Duloxetine which was prescribed just over two yrs ago but think dosage needs updating as still have bad anxiety and can not leave my flat not that their is anything out there i want to leave it for lol but would like to get a bit of sun in the garden.  Hope they work for you.

    hi kevin, do be careful with pregab. I have had same problems since I took first capsule, I am now almost incapacitated, I feel like I have run a marathon, from the minute I set my feet on the floor, I am clumsy, rolling like a drunk, legs just ache and have no strength, my co-ordination is gone, I really do not feel like the real me anymore, most of my time is spent on bed resting,  I did a post yesterday, because I am really struggling,  I don't think there will be an easy fix for me, it has changed my life , I am not the outgoing person  I was, more of a recluse, take care while you still have the chance.bye,rosie.

    I couldn't take Zoloft, sorry I don't know generic names or spelling. But it lasted 11 days and off I was back on effexor xr. I've not heard of that med u mentioned. But good luck
