Pregabalin for anxiety

Posted , 2 users are following.

Just wondered if there is anyone out there on pregabalin for anxiety ? I currently take duloxetine 90mg and mirtazapine 45mg for depression but my physchiatrist has just pescribed pregabalin for anxiety starting tonight with 75mg but will be 2 x 75 a day.  Not sure what to expect as have read both good and bad stories. Any experience would be helpful. Thanks and best wishes

    A friend of mine actually spoke about this today. He's been given it for sciatic pain. He said that's its great for sleep. Well his exact words where " it knocked him on his ar*e"!! He is on the highest dose though so lower doses will more than likely have a sedative effect,just calm you down xx
