I have osteoarthritis. Yesterday my GP prescribed 2 x 75mg pregabalin for pain relief. I have only taken
Has anyone been prescribed pregabalin for pain relief.
@A MyChronicPainTeam Member. I live in Wales and am in a similar drug Gabapentin. I also have Oesteo and unable to take codeine Tramadol morphine etc. Although these drugs don’t necessarily help joint pain. If you’re other pain is under control it may help you to manage the bigger picture. My side effect is to flare chronic indigestion 🙁. I do get days when I’m woozy but have been told this will wear off 🤷🏻♀️. Less general pain now but still have the joint pain 🙁
I was and didn’t stay on that long because of severe side effects.
Yes, I take pregablin
I take pregablin for osteoarthritis. I also have fibromyalgia. And a bunch of other stuff. Right now, I don't think it's helping because of the fibro is killing me...
I had only taken one 75mg capsule. My doctor prescribed two 75mg capsules a day, one in the morning and one at night. Big mistake taking it at all. This was last Wednesday evening and yet I am still having very unpleasant side effects.
I went back to my doctor on Friday who told me I did the right thing by not taking any more capsules as Pregabalin is very strong and doesn't suit everyone.
It is a controlled drug here in the UK so I returned the remaining medication to the dispensing pharmacist.
While Pregabalin is not a suitable drug for me, it doesn't mean it won't work for others.
I hope this information is useful to you.
