I got racing thoughts and could not sleep on Lyrica. Felt horrible. Will gabapentin most likely be the same?
"Although structurally similar, the drugs are absorbed differently; gabapentin slowly in the small intestine and Pregabalin more quickly in the small and large intestine.
Because pregabalin and gabapentin have the same makeup, it will follow that the side effects that patients may incur from taking one of these medications may be similar, though there can be differences as well. Unlike gabapentin, pregabalin can cause less side effects that are specifically dependent on the dosage, but these effects tend to be more severe than those caused by gabapentin."
Hope this helps.
Best regards, Wildcat
