Additional meds- Pregabalin
« on: December 01, 2011, 10:11:45 PM »
Was advised by psych today to continue taking Mirtazapine and to take Zolpidem every night also on top of these I have to now take Pregabalin for anxiety.  Supposed to start tonight really nervous about taking it as know nothing about it, anyone had it before??

I am on pregabalin and honestly can't praise it enough. It has had a massive, really positive effect on my anxiety. I went from up to 4 panic attacks a day to 1-2 every few weeks.

Everyone reacts differently but I really recommend trying it :hug2:

Really? that makes me feel a whole lot  better.  The doctor gave me a really hard time this morning it was only when I went to walk out he suggested anxiety meds xx

Yup honestly, its been so so effective (to the point that my cc has named it my wonder drug ;D ). Hopefully I'm going to get my dose increased next week as I've been on this dose for a while and my anxiety has crept up a a bit but I still don't have all the panic attacks that I was having before.

How did it go taking it last night?

The meds wore off about 12 noon.  The anxiety symptoms returned.  Bit annoying xx

 :confused: I dont understand why he hasnt prescribed them for the daytime too? From what my psych said it seems that its standard to take it multiple times a day as it has a short amount of time that it works for. Could you ask him about it? Or do you have a CPN you can ask?? (sorry, I cant remember what support you have).
