    Yes I am. Max dose of 200mg three times a day. It's really helped me, especially with staying in work

    I live in Scotland and was prescribed pregabalin for severe GAD one week ago. I started on 150mg per day and overnight felt significant relief. I have been suffering from anxiety / dread / extreme adrenaline rushes for over a year, always worst in the morning and gradually subsiding by the evening. Today I upped the dose to 300mg. I have only been on this for a week, but I am very encouraged by the results so far and side effects are minimal (I am usually non-tolerant to things like SSRIs and tricyclics). I would recommend anyone give this a try.
