I have recently stopped Amitriptyline and reduced my Pregabalin down to 25mg twice daily, which soon I'll be stopping completely. Whenever I reduce a dose in medication, the side effects hit me hard and I feel very unwell for around five days every day, before I start to see any improvements. I'm getting pretty good at withdrawing from medication now, so I have a little system for whenever this is about to happen. This is how I do my drug withdrawal week!
On a Sunday evening, instead of taking my normal 40mg dose of the medication, I took 20mg. I took my normal dose of pregabalin and then waited to fall asleep.. and the sleep never came!
