I have been on Pregabalin for a number of years, so after a while, I wasn't sure if it was doing anything for me. Then my GP asked if I would change over to Gabapentin, as it does the same thing, but is cheaper for the surgery. She did say I could go back to the original med, if the new one doesn't work for me. At the moment, I am suffering badly, due to reducing off. At least, I know now, that Lyrica (Pregabalin) was doing something for me. I'll try going on the other one, but if it is not effective, then I will go back on Lyrica (despite it costing the surgery more)
