My 93 year-old mother is trying to change from Pregabalin (2 x 25 mg tablets a day) to Rotigotine patches (Rotigotine 1mg patch daily). Prior to starting the patches she had reduced then stopped taking Pregabalin.
It is horrendous as she has hardly slept for days. She is becoming very low in spirits and doesn't want to eat. She is uncomfortable and hardly sleeping at all all night. She is trying to keep going but I am really worried about her. It's now Bank Holiday Saturday so can't get hold of GP and anyway GP knows little.
We do wonder if she could reintroduce a 25 mg Pregabalin tablet and continue with the patches. Does anyone else have experience of these problems and what would they recommend?
