    Pregabalin advice anyone ?

    Hi everyone

    i am new to forum

    quick summary is for last 30 years suffered with GAD

    GPs have tried various SSRI and Mirtazapine with varying disastrous effects!

    momth ago a psychiatrist recommended I add pregabalin to the existing 10mg of escitalopram I have been on

    as per many other posts the initial effect on 50mg was brilliant but over last 3 weeks increasing dose to 150mg twice a day feel like I am going backwards........

    has as anyone any experience of how long it might take pregabalin to work ?

    (would add no horrendous side affects like the SSRI give)

    any my advice would be gratefully received

    many thanks

    pregabalin was what I ended up on - have to say it worked a treat
    I was on it for about a year, and before this I was climbing the walls

    it did make me feel like a zombie at times, but anxiety went which is the main thing
    also did CBT at the same time which also helped.

    weaned off gradually & not really looked back

    good luck!
    stay with it!
