pregabalin

Posted , 1 user is following.

hi all

I've been on 300mg of pregabalin a day and my doctor up it to 450mg a day 3 days ago and ive started to feel wierd like daydreaming and not feeling myself and cant stop eating! I was feeling comfortable on 300mg which calmed my anxiety down to a point but doctor advise me to up it.

generally I feel fantastic to what I was but something don't feel right and I cant put a finger on it

      hi there, how did you manage to get off, I am struggling since july, took 28x 25mg caps over 21 days and was addicted, am using liquid ,,thought it would be quite easy, but its not, have all side effects plus a lot more not listed, side effects/withdrawal  are just abt same no relief, am seeing dr tomorrow, if I can still stand,  did you use a substitute  if so what, yesterday and last night were extremely bad  so glad  that someone has managed to kill this awful drug. you deserve a medal.  xx rosie.
