pregabalin - March 1st 2013, 10:33 AM

Anyone on it? I've just been diagnosed with generalised anxiety disorder and panic disorder with agoraphobia and been prescribed pregabalin to help with this. Just wondering if anyone has been on it and if they had any side effects or negative effects.

I've never been on pregabalin, but I've been on gabapentin which is closely related to that drug. I experienced no side effects, although I found that the medication didn't really help very much either.
Everyone reacts to medication differently though.

Thanks for the reply. I can't seem to find much on the internet with regards to normal dosages, how safe it is in overdoses (I have a tendancy to overdose, so I'd rather be on something that is less likely to do damage) etc we have a copy of the BNF at work though, so I might be able to sneak a look in there for some info.

If you can't find anything online you could always ask a pharmacist. They'll have a book in the pharmacy that has information on every medication, and it's updated every year so they'll have your medication in it for sure. That's what the pharmacist is there for :P
