I am on 300mg x2 a day and now the side effects far out way the pain. I look like an egg, fat, eat like a horse, my eye sight is continually blurred and I sweat a horrible vinegar if I have my quilt over me. my short term men has gone and I can not remember simple everyday words.
I started pregabalin 2 weeks after it got licences. so 3 years now and I think i ts not working any longer. I would definitely think long and hard about starting this drug, it was a god send when I first started it, now I think its the devils drug
if I miss this drug by even 1 hour, I go into a semi coma, sweat buckets, and feel sick and I know its like a junky cold turkey.
I am one of those rare male fibro heads and I can not wait to remove this poison from my body. I will take my old friend Mr pain and Mrs fatigue over the side effects of the soon to be divorced evil Mrs pregabalin.
another strange side effect is talking about an hour after taking it for ages. my partner ignored this now, I also will not miss squinting my eyes to see, or sometimes changing bedding 3x in 12 hours, and the loss of fear when my body went to a very high 600mg a day dose. Yes I had a strange loss of fear, I went from a fear of fast rides and heights to wanting to go on and actually going on the biggest UK coaster and standing on top a 40 story building, on the edge. my fears came back eventually and I look back and feel scared at who I was. My partner was frightend and I was too.
these are side effects I put down to pregabalin.
huge weight gain
loss of weeks of my life due to excess sleeping.
cold turkey if minutes are missed not taking on time
memory loss, extra brain fog
so starting Wednesday evil Mrs pregabalin goes bye bye.
