I’m looking to connect with someone who has been taking pregabalin for panic anxiety/depression

Originally I was prescribed Pregabalin for shingles, however I discovered it helped with my anxiety. I was prescribed 150mg a day as needed for the pain. I now take up to 600mg some days. Pregabalin let's me live without self doubt and negativity. I also take Lexapro

Hi I’ve been prescribed 50mg 3x a day. I’m terrified to start them tho. I also take Prozac 40mg daily. Can I ask if they worked for you from the first dosage? And how long you have been on them for? Thanks

I guess you should try them, I noticed an affect from the first dosage I’m on them
Just over a year now, although I was a bit tired at the start but now I’m used too it and it’s working for depression, anxiety, insomnia and my nerve damage.

I wish I could get my head around just trying so scared of side effects I’ve built it up to probably being bigger than it is!
Thank you for being so honest with me I really need that.
Are you uk or somewhere else (just curious)

You’ll get there 1 step at a time and I’m from Ireland and yourself?

Thank you I do hope so! Are you in a good place now then? I get fed up of it knowing what mood I’m going to have from day to day. I think I’m ok then I nose dive again

So far I’ve had more good days than bad but there’s no quick fix, just take one day at a time.
