Has anyone been prescribed pregabalin for fibro? Or prescribed strong painkillers... only to be told I have been taking them for too long and have to stop, thus bringing on a lovely bout of withdrawal symptoms..and put back on the damn things again?!! I'm letting people know of my horrendous experience with the drug to prevent anyone from going through the same thing. They don't tell you tramadol is addictive as it actually is, or how tolerance to the drug leads to taking over the recommended dose. and as health experts seem to think fibro is all in the head, pregabalin was prescribed to me, at 600mg max dose, built up gradually. That drug, and probably along with the anti malaria drugs I was also taking for the cutaneous lupus, nearly ended me mentally, with no sign of helping the pain what so ever. I was walking around in a daze, questioning if I was in reality or dreaming on a number of occasions. I also had fits of rage...and paid with even more pain for it. I am thinking of changing doctors, or going back to the pain management team, but I think they said the next step was morphine patches. has anyone had any experience or knowledge on them they could possibly share with me? And will it be another med the doctor will give and take away again?
wow that was longer than intended, lol, thanks for reading, and take care,
