Belfast’s Pregabalin Addiction | Drugs Map of Britain
Pregabalin, a drug prescribed to treat anxiety, epilepsy and nerve pain has seen huge increases in prescription in Belfast, alongside the illegal trade of the drug on the streets. Director Adam Patterson follows the lives of some young people in Northern Ireland who are using and at times abusing these prescription medications.\n\nIf you would like information or support about the topics covered in this documentary, there are organisations in the UK that can help.

Chase The Horizon écrit: Pregabalin is an widespread problem, speaking as someone who works in pharmacies throughout Essex in England I can honestly confirm that this is a full blown crisisMelanie Willard écrit: Pregabalin??? They pass it out like tictacs. While taking away actual relief.MarkStewart PraisetheMostHigh écrit: There’s no help. They’ll prescribe you methadone which raises your tolerance to such a ridiculous level that a lot of people will be on it for life.
It’s not treatment it’s maintaining and raising your addiction through synthetic and legal means.
It’s a joke. And pregabalin is total poison to your system.
Ask any addict who knows: What would they rather be addicted to – heroin or Pregabalin.
I guarantee every answer will be heroin.
Pregabalin is great for opiate withdraws, it should only be used short term.
Do some research on people’s experiences coming off Pregabalin, you will be totally shocked at how many ways this poison attacks your mind and body.
Drugs are over prescribed, the ‘help’ is a joke. I’ve been an addict for 4 years and still haven’t met a drug worker who has the slightest clue about addiction.
It’s always the addicts fault and we are looked down upon by most of ‘society’ because a lot of people can’t think for themselves so they think how they’re told to think without realising that they might have more in common with that addict than their best friends.
Such a backwards world.
My heart breaks every day.Mark Alexander écrit: I have both anxiety and nerve pain. Not on Pregabalin, but am on Gabapentin and they're very similar. I know what he means about when you don't have it. The withdrawal is ridiculous.Beverly Ann écrit: Sad that this fighting over religion and there’s only one God❤️Shauna Anderson écrit: I wanted to jump through the tv when I watched that guy with that puppy. There is no need to get in any dogs face and do that!!! All You doing is instilling fear and eventually hate inside that dog. Give the puppy what he gives to you buddy…. Love
It's dudes like him that give those dogs bad names, it's people like him that add to the stigma behind pitties and pittie look alike. Domt be the reason another pittie is euthanized due to being "aggressive" when thays all you have taught him. Dude do right by your puppy and don't continue the stigma behind this breed of dog, drugs and gang violence. That dog could help you through mental health issues and drug addictions if you play your cards right. Dogs/animals are therapeutic and are great gifts in life for this reason. Train him properly please not through intimidation and fear, your dog doesn't care if you're tough, he just wants love and care.fabian sanchez écrit: Stick to weedChris Carton écrit: Typical Belfast attitude "Aye, the UVF is great!"

get it. Or they are fed with antidepressants and neuroleptics instead

Swallowing all that nasty drip must fck up his stomach… the worst part in his case is his "high" is mostly placebo, taking it orally would actually cause a stronger feeling, its very well absorbed orally. Gabapentin honestly is prolly safer than this stuff tho, I've heard of some weird crap happening on lyrica occasionallyAdam Adam écrit: wtf.. 600 mg lyrica and he puked?? that can't be rightGang Star écrit: I get 56x 300mg of these each month for absolutely nothing.
I love the NHS.Jade L écrit: Feel sorry for the dog.

I'm not bragging or anything as that was a bad time in my life. But I just can't understand why they are being sick when they take it. I'm obviously a different breed. And I was on about 66 to 130 pill's a day, I'm so lucky to still be alive and I will never go back to this shit. I would take a mixture of codein and pregabalin. Though I found it easy to give up the pregabalin and I had zero withdraw symptoms. Which obviously made it easier to stop taking. The codeine was by far the hardest thing to stop and I actually ended up on the methadone script to stop me self medicating because of the ibuprofen and the paracetamol that are in the pill's. That is what was killing me, my organs were rotting and my kidneys and liver were giving up.Super Shemale yolanda écrit: This shit is so addictive , its almost on the same level as valerian root..I AM A FAILURE!! écrit: Taking it orally means it takes longer to start working! I suffer from acute anxiety, manic depression and episodes along with bipolar. It's not easy and the Drs in NZ are USELESS when it comes to medication I'm having to increase my dose of pregablin just to wean myself off of venlafaxine because my idiot Dr put me on it when you're not supposed to take it with a bipolar diagnosis! The withdrawal from venlafaxine is HORRIFIC and the Drs don't care because they refuse to give you medication like gabapentin, Ritalin etc. Yes I get a high from pregablin BUT it's the high that I need/is relatively normal because of the anxiety.Kirsty Mcintee écrit: Poor bhoy love from Glasgow I'm just back Tae BelfastDam Tanker écrit: Fkin disgusting…Nicolás Camacho écrit: Psychiatrist are the worst of the drug dealers.

Simply giving him the drugs isn’t going to help anything in the long run. Poor guy. It would be nice of the state medical service could hook him up with a therapist.Meghan Shalley écrit: I had no idea that lyrica could or would be an addictive drug!!! He's jittery like with meth, spice, or fentanylDark Christian écrit: the thing about drugs is you have tolerance and it gets more and more till it kills you, you can not win with drugs it is a trap for young soul's who know not know any better, I was a child and
experimented on all drugs, it all leads to nothing we get tolerant and need more, don't do them at all. just be yourself be a leader not a follower, plan your life and execute it, drugs will kill youmosao12a ssa écrit: Brałem pregabaline ogólnie na pierwszy raz 600 mg dobrze tarzała, ale potem to lipa z jej działaniem, szybko rośnie tolerancja.420 and coke écrit: W e have top marijuana strains available Og and purple kush, white widow, sour diesel

Im on enough stuff already, The guy at the end reading his script lol hes getting the same things as me or things ive bn on before.. Anti depressants and anti psychotic meds etcRyan Vargas écrit: There’s a point where you can only take so much and then it won’t do anything. If you don’t take more than the daily dose (and don’t insufflate(snort)) it works great. These guys using it in heavy amounts all @ once and the withdrawal from these is shitty so that’s why everyone looks so jacked up once they’re out.Daniel Faherty écrit: A half hour documentary about mentally ill people on medication. WowQ-presss écrit: If I was to ruin my life for the sake of drugs, then it certainly wouldnt be over gabapentin… I guess I just never realised how addictive neurontin really was.
