I have stopped taking pregabalin as I don't think it works for me. Does anyone know how long one should be off the drug before having an alcoholic drink? Thanks
pregabalin: I have stopped taking pregabalin as... - Pain Concern
sorry to hear about the pain your still having but good news about the that you were able to have a drink while on the drug. a lot of alarmists about who blame anything I have been ok stopping cold turkey ......don't know if this will help but I'm taking tart cherry juice to ease pain and also it helps with sleep. have not been on it very long but at least no adverse effects!
I have had a bleed stroke and the part of the brain affected is the Thalamic. you have one on the right and one on the left and this controls the nerves and pain. Well I had a stroke on my left side and now I have severe pain down my right had side which is called Thalamic pain Syndrome. It is like someone pouring scolding water over you and slashing you with a knife. I have this 24 hours a day, never leaves me but I can sleep, which is a godsend. If I did not have a drink now and then I would go crazy. I just have to really grin and bear it unfortunately but I will try anything to help. Anyone got a bottle of gin handy !!!!!!!!!!
