Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I am on pregabalin and have been for some time. Due to extreme dryness of my skin and eyes I asked to be put on something else for a month to give it chance to clear up. So the specialist put me on tramadol. I have been on it for a while now and the skin cleared up but I will have to go back to pregabalin now as tramadol seems to keep me wide awake every night plus it does not seem to help as much with the nerve pain either. Just odd how one makes me quite dizzy but the other has the opposite effect even though they both have dizziness as a side effect.
