Hi guys! How are you? Let me know in the comments, I want to know! 🙂 I thought it might be interesting to blog about my first three months of taking Pregabalin. I know it can be helpful for those deciding whether to take it, to read others’ experiences. In my experience, the side effects they tell you about officially aren’t necessarily the only ones. Actually talking to other people who take it, there are so many common side effects not even listed!
By the way, I’m in the UK but if you’re reading from another country, Pregabalin may also be called Lyrica.
What is Pregabalin?
I started taking Pregabalin in mid-June this year. I was prescribed it by my pain clinic, to help with my chronic pain (caused by ME and fibromyalgia). Pregabalin was actually initially intended to treat certain types of seizures in people with epilepsy. I believe it is still used for that, but is also now approved to treat pain.
