Pregabalin - How long does it take for pregabalin to work for anxiety?


WildcatVet 4 June 2022

Hi, Pcullen!
Most people will begin to feel relief within the first couple of weeks but it may take several more weeks for the medication to become fully effective. If you're lucky the placebo effect may happen immediately.

I absolutely agree with you that Pregabalin for seizures, diabetic neuropathy and FM it takes time to build up in your system, but I have to disagree with you regarding the time frame you provided for anxiety.

Have a nice day, masso

"Pregabalin is related to the calming brain chemical gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA).
It reduces the release of brain chemicals that have a stimulating effect.
It can take a little time for pregabalin to start helping with anxiety.
In most clinical trials, researchers saw people getting relief from the symptoms of anxiety by week four of taking pregabalin."
"The information on this page was reviewed by the College of Mental Health Pharmacy in March 2020."

I have read the studies and clinical trials, but I answered as per my experience and I did mention that everyone reacts differently to meds.

That's why I posted the link to User Reviews thinking that of the 300+ reviews for GAD there might be some pertinent comments.
Have a very nice weekend!

When I took Lyrica (Pregabalin), it started working the 1st couple of days, but everyone reacts to meds differently.
