Pregabalin - a short story

Postby Painintheneck » Fri May 11, 2018 4:28 pm

After three months of Pregabalin at 150mg x 2 per day, I had to stop taking it quite suddenly.

I can't remember, have you tried Duloxetine?

Yes, Duloxetine was one of several (SSRI/SNRI) medications that provoked poor/bad reactions.

That five day pregabalin tail-off ended up becoming considerably longer - about four weeks more in fact. Now on to another medication. Is there no end to this not so merry-go-round?

I’m sure most of us can relate to the merry go round of trying different meds. Hopefully these new ones will help :fingerscrossed:
