What mg of each tablet are you taking? have you seen a pain clinic regards to meds? I take 300mg pregab twice a day and 100mg slow release tramodol twice a day then extra tramadol upto 100mg a day when needed. i worked upto theses levels via a pain clinic.

They don't work as a magic wand but I would be worse without it.

sounds like quite a jump, who are they referring you to at the hospital? Not heard of taking pregablin in any way than twice a day, does anybody else take it more than twice a day? Sorry to hear that the pain clinic didn't help I went to 2 pain clinics before this one in Inverness before I got the support I need might be worth trying another clinic.

you have got to do what you feel is right for you, if you do struggle while you are waiting for your appointment I would go back to the doctor and explain your concerns about the tablets and take it from there. Hope you don't have to wait to long.
