Hi I've been taking pregabalin 25mg twice daily for my chronic back pain (doesn't help the spasms tho). I spoke to the pain nurse and she has me reducing them, as even though it's only a small dose I've been putting weight on (which I'm fat anyway) and had a few headaches! My dilemma is that my pain is coming back in my back!!! Over the next few weeks I'm looking after my grandchildren which I've not been able to do for so long! So I've decided to carry on taking the pregabalin.... Am I doing the right thing??? Advice/opinion wanted as I'm not sure what to do!!! I know there's only me that can decide really but the pregabalin does help me so much!!!!! Huff don't know what to do for the best!!!!
