Hi all pretension takers,
I am being weaned off pregabilin as I type, I am now on my 4th week of gradual withdrawl. I started off on 300mg a day and I am now on 150mg. My doctor did earn me that addicts say that coming off pregabilin is worse than coming off methadone. I thought she was exaggerating, I now know better. I have had sweats, shakes, no appetite, poor or no sleep and most of what everyone has already mentioned. The thing I am finding worse is the sweating, I am sweating so much at night I have a towel on my pillow, a towel under my and I am using a towel as a blanket. If I have to go out I actually consider myself lucky that I have a powered wheelchair because there is no way I could walk the way I am feeling.
I wish that I had never been given this drug but when you have chronic pain you will try anything for it to stop. Once I am off the pregabilin I have to think about whether I can then come off my oxcodone. Has anybody tried coming off this? I am on a very high dose of this 260mg a day
