I started taking Pregabalin for GAD about nine months ago and I have had a huge amount of side effects since then. I have had weight gain, severe headaches, dizziness, pain in my ears and abdominal pain. Having spoken to my GP he says this is to be expected. Does anyone else experience this/ take this medication and, if so, how do you deal with it?
I don't take it. But my medical provider said no way would she prescribe it as it has too many serious side effects. I wouldn't take it if she would just listening to commercials telling SOME of the side effects. Scary.
I take lyrica. Im on a high dose three times a day for fibromyalgia. I try small portions, drink water and take Tylenol for my headaches. I move around a lot which helps.
