My anxiety/agoraphobia battle is still awful and becoming intolerable.
I take 20mg diazepam per day at present, i have taken it for years so it's obviously not working the way it used to but i don't want to reduce it at this point in time.
Anyway things reached crisis point yesterday and a CPN came to see me at home, as a nurse they cannot prescribe anything but can suggest things and she suggested pregabalin.
My regular GP was not there but another one issued me a prescription, 75mg twice daily and see how I get on for a week.
However upon reading the patient information leaflet and asking the pharmacist it appears that this medicine is addictive and can have some rather intense side effects especially when taken with benzos, some people say it's like being drunk or high and I would hate that.
Anyway just wondering if anyone here had any experience of it? I will contact my regular GP on Monday but currently I am just too scared to take it.
