I suffer with leg stiffness for which I was perscribed gabapentin (baclofen no good). I was on about 800mg of gabapentin and had the usual side effects. When the idea of taking less drug for the same effect was mentionered (pregablin) I was keen!!
As I switched from gabapentin to Pregab I was temporarily taking both (gabapen decreasing and pregab increasing).
At that point I felt better balaced, much less stiff.
I assumed it was the pregablin. For a year I have taken just pregablin and although, for me, its results are better than just gabapentin they aren’t as good as the “crossover” period when I took both drugs.
I approached my neuro team and the standard answer was "no you shouldn’t take both. Then asked the head neuro and he agreed.
Anyone else had a similar experience?
