Hi there,

I’m looking for information about the drug Pregabalin.

I’m due to start treatment with this and would like to hear people’s experiences of taking the drug.

I have nerve damage from previous laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis.

I have had 10 surgeries in total including a hysterectomy.

I’m in constant pain.

This is the last hope for me but I’m scared of the side effects and am looking into alternatives.

Any advice would be greatly received.

Many thanks

Hi Hun, I take pregabalin as I have a benign cystic spinal tumour and it affects my walking. I also get significant nerve pain. I’ve also had a hysterectomy too.

I’ve taken pregabalin on a number of occasions and it definitely works for me even if it doesn’t take all the pain away completely, at times. I haven’t noticed any side effects but that could be because I’ve got used to it.

I definitely think it’s worth trying it if your doctor is recommending it.

Take care Hun, hope your pain eases, stay warm and gentle hugs to you xx


Make sure you start at the lowest dose and go up slowly. I had to increase by opening capsules and splitting them in half to go up by halves to tolerate the side effects. It mainly made me dizzy but everyone is different.

Good luck!
