I am a non-smoking, non-drinking, normal-ish weight, active, 60-year-old woman.
I have been on a combo of amitriptyline and tramadol (low doses at night) for some years, but they have stopped working. Plus both make me constipated and amitriptyline makes me hungry!
I have recently been prescribed pregabalin 50mg in the evening, to go to 100mg after a week. I am worried about the following side-effects:
Increased hunger and weight gain - one of the reasons I came off amitriptyline
Constipation - fed up of this with the amitriptyline and tramadol
Headaches - have these every day already
Fluid retention - hate feeling bloated
Having to take it at the same time every day - my routine will not permit this and the window I can take it in varies from 6pm to 10m, depending on what I am doing in the evening
Being difficult to come off of
Does anyone who has been prescribed the same dose as me for the same condition as me have any experience or advice please?
