Pregabalin: Has anyone taken pregabalin... - Mental Health Sup...
I take this med twice a day. The main side effect that I get from it is dry mouth. This med helps me some. I take it for MS nerve pain.
Thank you x x
You're welcome 😁
Can I as you have long you have suffered with ms and what were your first symptoms? X if you don’t mind x
Certainly, I don't mind sharing my testimony. It might educate other. My original symptoms were basics, but we had no idea what my body was trying to tell me. In my early 20's I started having an overactive bladder, often migraines, swelling in my stomach, tons of daily gas, forgetfulness and IBS-C. There probably are a few other symptoms that don't come to mind right now. After plenty of doctors visits, we were still not on the right path. Up until the inevitable happened, a huge obvious flare-up. I we numb from right below my breast to the tippy is my toes. The MRI's on my brain and spine showed evidence of other smaller flare-ups throughout the years. Thanks for asking. Have a wonderful Friday!🌻😀♥️
You are amazing and such a positive person 💗thank you for sharing x x
My pleasure Sis!
What do you need to take pregabalin for? If you don't mind me asking.🌹✨
I suffer with cervical spondylitis and have been in pain so dr prescribed this x x I suffer with health anxiety so dr has given me sertraline and suffering with the start up effects from these. Started taking pregabalin but with those side effects too it was too much x x
It is true, we learn something new everyday. This is my first time hearing of this condition.
Which side effects did you experience while on the mentioned medication?
Did your MD prescribe something else to ease your pain?
It’s basically arthritis of the upper spine and neck x no I’m paying private seeing an osteopath x x x
Pregabalin or Lyrica is a drug from hell. After less than a week on it I could not tolerate the side effects so stopped. I have never suffered quite as much as in that withdrawal. Don't take it.
Hi, I've been taking Pregabalin for over 12 months now My experience has been very positive. I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis and could hardly walk on a hard surface. I was given Pregabalin and it was such a relief and a fantastic side effect was that my anxiety decreased and I felt more relaxed than I have done in years. I still can't walk far but when I do it's not painful. x
👋 yes I'm on pregablin for pain. But what I didn't know is that they are an opiate, if I had known that I would not have started taking them. As I'm on a lot of medication, including mst 100mg twice a day. The pregablin 2000mg twice a day. They are highly addictive worse than the mst, if I miss a dose, I start sweating, feeling sick I start twitching. My daughter and sister are on pregablin, and the same thing happens to them if they miss a dose. Ask your doctor for something that hasn't got opiate in. I hope this helps. X
Ask your doctor hun, for something else. If I had known about pregablin I would never have started taking them. Its OK that people tell you they are really good. But you also need to know the side effects. I was also told that the doctors were stopping prescribing them. Ask it you can have the injection, it's got steroids, cortisone and something else. I've just started having that, and that's the best pain relief, that lasts for 6 months. Xx
I take it 4 times a day and dry mouth is my only symptom
Hi rayannabbey, yes I'm taking pregabalin for nerve pain and I wouldn't be with out it.
Thank you all 💗
Please don't. This med is so addictive - a&e wouldn't prescribe it. There are Facebook groups with people saying this med has destroyed their life. The withdrawal is hell for some people.
I take Pregabalin twice a day. I have a condition called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome on my right hand and arm. Again I have a dry mouth with this.
There are various other medications that are given for nerve pain the medications are used in small doses so the effect is secondary to the main use of the drug for depression I take Amytryptalene and have taken it for many years, they work. As mentioned above D3 and vit B can also help. Talk to your GP
Hi there, yes i am on pregabalin, max dose each day...i thought it had stopped working as pain is worse, but hospital said ,NO it wont stop working, just means your pain is worse! GREAT!!
Im tired of being in pain all the time.
