My First Week Taking Pregabalin as Anxiety Treatment
This video includes vlogs of my first 8 days on Lyrica. I wasn’t thrilled with this video, because of the bad quality and lightning, but it was something I did for myself and to record my progress. I hope my future videos will be filmed with my DSLR and done a little better. I have a lot to learn about film making and editing.
word play écrit: You should only take them for 3 or 4 days and then have a 3 or 4 days not taking them because you get immune to them after a couple of days so if you want to miss use them it's up to you but they definitely get you. I'm supposed to take 150ml capsules twice a day, but if you are r the sort of person who likes getting fucked up stoned my "friend" took 1350 ml today and "he" is pretty well fucked up, yes "he's wobbly but spent a good couple of hours laying on the couch having the most amazing hallucinations and geometric patterns in my head. Now a few hours later he's felling pretty mellow and content but definitely wobbly on his feet. The main problem with pregabalin is they take a very long time to actually kick in. My "friend" says the best way to get them to kick in faster is to chew them up until a paste forms, (they taste disgusting at first) swollow the paste and have a hot cup off coffee and they will kick in much sooner, or so I've been told. I took 75 ml pregabalin twice a day, correctly, as prescribed for about six months and can't actually say that I felt any difference between taking them and not taking them. I have serious health issues so I'm in and out of the hospital quite a bit and I talk to people who are also sick in one way or another and we talk about the hospital and after a while I say "I counted my meds and I take 12 pills, and 4 injections (I have type 1 diabetes) every day I can list them if anyone's interested and then the person I'm talking to starts telling me what med list. What I'm trying to say is that nearly everyone I spoke to was prescribed pregabalin. They seem to be really keen for us all to be taking them. These are strictly my own opinions so do your own research and form your own opinions. Sorry for the rant but I needed to blow off some steam. Love your channel✊Clever boys écrit: Why are u taking double is not true you take only one pill in one time that is best for you lifetime sisRob Medina écrit: My doc just put me on this..im on 300mg it hits me hard I end up taking naps throw the day.The Realist écrit: im on 600mg for nerve pain but because of my bipolar it does make me manic irratable and suicidal …I hate side effect like this Rahul Juke écrit: Pregabalin is a medication that works great for some & absolutely terrible for others. I took it off script to start with then requested it from the doctor as it completely changed my life & my anxiety/eupd for the better. I'm now on 150mg twice a day. Yet some of my friends who have GAD/Social anxiety find it terrible & no good and hated it. It's a really strange acting medication but I feel it gets shunned because of this. Yet I do feel because it's strange acting & almost dangerous for some it can be a risky med. All I can say is personally it has changed my life for the best. Got me free from a 15+ severe alcohol problem caused by social anxiety & keeps me 100% stable in the community.
So yeah – Great for some, absolutely terrible for others. Watch out for this.Peura Mauriainen écrit: I take bregabalin sometimes 400mg-600mg.. never felt suicidal!!.. maybe debens a person!!.

I’m now completely addicted and without it I get so sick that I can’t function. It has totally effected my personality, I have put on so much weight and am ‘swollen looking’.It has total control of my life. Don’t touch it if I have ANY mental health issues or addiction issues. My withdrawal is so bad that this drug WILL be the death of me. This stuff is as bad as heroin but without a substitute to help the withdrawal !James Kelly écrit: This girl is wonderful, so much information, keep making videos,.Ranjit Tyagi écrit: 02:57 You already look so relaxed. Smiling while in the plane moments before take off confirms your brain neuron firing signals have now reduced that hyper activity. It also confirms there is nothing wrong with you. I was diagnosed with GAD in MO. That doesn't mean anything is wrong with me. That was 12 years back. After understanding it's just brain activity, it was way easier to relax. Currently, I'm in NW India. There are some critical things I'd like to let you know but for obvious (you caught my drift), I can't write them here. Do let me know if you'd like to hear me out. I have an Indian phone number these days but you'd know how easy I lived in U.S. right from the moment you hear my first few words. Power to you. All the best, no one can stop you leave alone anxiety. P.S. I took 150 mg of Pregabalin last night after weeks and I too slept like a baby and now it's been an hour since I got up at around 2:50 PM. I can still feel some effects but you may be surprised that my purpose to take this chemical last night wasn't anxiety reduction at all.viktorya psychedelic.souljam écrit: Why would u film everything in the dark.BenGman Bucynack écrit: Pretty girl ….well 600 MLS a day is a miracle for me sat here looking at a box of 300ml tabBenGman Bucynack écrit: Pretty girl ….well 600 MLS a day is a miracle for me sat here looking at a box of 300ml tabAnonymous fuck écrit: feeling like your drunk i dont see as a problemswstmoney écrit: Lyrica is of the devil.Ne4gative thoughts and suicidal thoughts are the devil and demons attacking you.This drug caused me to have suicidal thoughts all the while being afraid of Gods wrath if I did kill myself but at the same time almost not able to fight the desire to kill myself.It is of the devil.nedar giordano écrit: I take 2 50mg capsules with a big cup of coffee in the morning.

They are available on the street here but ATM they are not too common. I wonder how long you have to take them before you would start to see any withdrawal effects once you stop taking them daily?barood khan écrit: You fine girlllGeoffrey Baker écrit: Can't here u much feel your need keep in touch trust know one.June Shortall écrit: It takes me 300mg 3x a day to relieve anxietyWalter Houben écrit: Awesome video Walter Houben écrit: Lyrica saved my life !

It states that medications should not be taken at the same time as this product but at least one hour before. Thought I’d let you know as I think it can prevent you absorbing medication correctly xAva Watkins écrit: Hey! If you're still on lyrica, please, PLEASE be very careful! It does help very well with anxiety and ,for me, it really helped with my depression. I have meds resistant depression and generalized anxiety. The problem is this: when you wanna come off it you are going to have pretty bad depression (even if you haven't had it before) and suicidal thoughts. Just be very careful with the dosage . Best wishes! !!Darren Hall écrit: Apologies if you said this and I didn’t hear it , but what dosage are yo currently on ?

They will make u feel drunk/ dizzy at the begging but you will get used to it just take the lowest dose. I'm on 600 mg right now and feel fine. It gave me a buzz maybe the first two times a took it besides that it just makes me calm. I can see how it's addicting but I will say most drugs like Xanax and oxy are much more addicting. Maybe take a day off every 3 days if your scared of withdrawal and you use it daily for anxiety. I stop using it daily after getting through the worst of Xanax withdrawal so I wouldn't know about how bad the withdraw to gabapentin is because I haven't taken it more than 7 days in a row. I also smoke weed drink alcohol and take kratom daily. And I mix all that with the gabapentin with no serious side effects. Just be aware of your body's warning signs and you'll know if you need to stop taking gabapentin besides that I think it's one of the better anxiety medications when it comes to side effects with only the months experience I've had with itmadtingemzy écrit: Can I ask you something? I have a virus right now and I have a med draw at home and I picked up the Pregabalin 150g tablets and took it instead of a ibro. Will I be okay?Daniel D DePape écrit: I just started it 2 days now.

I have been taking 160mg per day and I feel it's really helping my anxiety disorder. You can but it in the US and it's called Calm Aid. It's mechanism of action is like Gabapentin and Pregabaling without any of the nasty side effects. Speak to your doctor about it.Kobe_Power écrit: did it work for u, i just start taking it.
