Hi I just wanted to support anyone who is on pregablin and trying to come off them. I was only on Pregablin for a short while after being on Gabapentin which didn't help either. With the help of my GP I am off them at last and feel better than when I took them. It seems crazy that a pill which is so expensive and supposed to help with pain, made me so ill. I would say to anyone going through the weaning process that although it is horrendous with all the effects coming off them, keep going I nearly gave up, but I had a great Doctor and he kept in touch and when it looked like the weaning wasn't working on its own, I did have to go on to a very short course of Diazepan for the panic attacks and shivering nervous episode, something for the nausea and acid stomach. It took about 5/6 weeks for the last 2 weeks I haven't taken any. I did not get the right GP the first time I asked, but after that I had great help. Keep positive and take care all. Hugs xxx
