    Yep. my psych. prescribed it for me scared me rigid when I read the possible side effects though. I think I ended up on 150mg +Mirtazipine 45mg a day it worked I think for a while. Not really the wonder drug I was hoping for though. Worth a try, I stopped it as it affected my vision for some reason. good luck (it's better than being addicted to benzodiazepine) that's where I am!

    Hi Terry

    i found it to be excellent because it worked immediately and helped me sleep. My doctor says he thinks it is an axcellent drug for anxiety. I had some mad side effects at first, burning eyes and throat, euphoria slightly hyper (but not in an anxious way) but these vanished after a couple of days. Wouldn't reccomend taking with any sort of benzo though as you begin walking into doors etc also I don't drink so I'm not sure about drinking with them.

      I was put on it for back pain but it had an immediate effect on my anxiety. I was on 100mg 3 x day. If it doesn't work ask about it's sister drug gabapentin. . I was put on that first and found it even better for anxiety but was switched to pregabalin as its supposed to be better for pain. You can switch straight over from one to the other no need to taper one first.

    i take pregablin smile, it has been a godsend for me,

    i was taking a spray for my gullet spasms bc i was getting these due to anxiety and i had to spray it 3 or 4 times a day twice each time under the tongue then i was put on pregablin and it really help calm me down so much that i didnt have to use the spray as much, (the spray gave me headaches and stung my tongue) it is a lot more complicated than that but it really does help me a lot.
