Hello I have been on 400mg a day Pregablin for a month before that 3 months of Gabapentin increasing gradually to 3000mg aday, neither pill helped with the pain i am in. I asked one of our GPs a bout stopping, he said he didn't feel i would have trouble coming off and i could skip a dose here and there. My god what a nightmare after the first day or two i felt i was going mad. Sickness/nausea, diarrhoea, sweats, chills, panic attacks. I lost over a stone ( which i had put on when on them). I desperation i called the Doctors for advice, he thought i should have been on a weaning dose. Today i am on 150grms for 2 days then 100grms for 2 days dropping 50grms at a time. I will never take these again the muscle and joint pain they caused was far worse than what i had before. Anyone seeing this post please take advice from the doctor. I am hoping i will feel better very soon
