Did You Know? That You Can Now Get "Pregabalin" Through Your Doctor Then Collect It Over The Counter? Well, You Can In New Zealand.
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

I went to the doctors about 2 weeks ago now and found that I can now get "Pregabalin" through my doctor not a specialist order.

The last time I tried Pregabalin it was through my specialist and I needed a special authority number this could take weeks or even months, this resulted in me going through tremendous painful and agonizing withdrawals because it just took too long to go through all of the right channels.

unsure honestly what they charge anymore. I lost my medical insurance 3 and a half years ago and can not get any medical help here. I've been doing without all this time but recently found a suboxone dr locally that will treat me. Although here the dr appt (1rst visit) is $389.00 then $100.00 weekly plus cost of the suboxone which for a month is about $250-$400 a month.

In the USA, you go to your doctor to get a prescription, which you then bring to the pharmacy and with in a few minutes, walk out with your Rx. Some times there's a blips in the road, when insurance says you can't have it, but I think that is the exception.

I don’t Remember the generic names but a long time ago I tried Neurontin and it didn’t do anything from what I remember. I just tried Lyrica 75mg after surgery in June. It made me so dizzy and I was numb from the waste down after surgery. Needless to say being dizzy was not good!
