I've recently been diagnosed with FM as well as RA and have been prescribed 75mg Pregabalin, once a day to begin with. I'm on my fourth week and although I've noticed a few improvements (mainly sleep related) I seem to have slipped into a hole and am feeling quite hopeless about life. I wasn't like this before the diagnosis and if this is not something that is going to improve as I get used to the drug then I'm not only reluctant to increase the dose but also not overly keen to stay on it at all! I don't really want to start taking more pills to help combat the depression. Will these feelings ease? Are they part of the FM? Are they a known side effect of Pregabalin? Has anyone got any words of advice? Thank you in advance, Jo.
