8} Hi guys,
I will try to keep this short so as not to embarrasse myselfi started taking pregabalin on 24/3/11 (gabapentin not effective)and I was wondering when the mad giggles and "navel gazing" side effect levels out??lol
As a painkiller they are working really well(best I've had to be fair) better for me than other anti-epileptic drugs have been!! I can "feel" a numb cushion around the surgey site and am in no pain (this starts about 45mins after taking)for which I am imensely grateful lol.
However, I have a bizzarre sense of humour at the best of times but most of the time I was quite unhappy even with anti depressants - this was b4 pregab ;-) I know none of us are docs but I would appreciate anyone sharing their pregab experiances for comparison if poss :-)
I feel quite "trippy" and I read that the drug also helps with anxiety (blurry. Eyes - can't c keys properly)and really I guess I'd like to know if anyone else had this and how long it lasted for them - not complaining - it makes a nice change to laugh so much lol
Thanx folx - take caRe
