Hello Lewis, I'm not totally sure what you are saying but Pregablin is ten times better than Gabapentin,I'm on max dosage which is 300mg twice a day along with strong pain killers,I'm sure you will feel much better after changing to Pregablin,the problem with Pregablin is that it is very expensive so seems to not be prescribed as much as it should be,all the best and good luck with future treatment.

Hello again Lewis,I just thought I would let you know that Pregablin will start to make you feel rather euphoric and somewhat sanguine and confident which helps a lot and coupled with some good company or a good comedy film will help a lot my friend,Laurel and Hardy does it for me pal hehe,take care and enjoy life and the summer is just round the corner so plenty to be happy about,all the best Steve.

Any time my friend,chin up kidda all the best Steve.
