Pregabalin (Lyrica): What You Need To Know
Pregabalin (Lyrica) is a medication in the gabapentinoid class. It has anticonvulsant, anxiolytic, and analgesic properties. As such, it’s used for epilepsy, neuropathic pain, anxiety, and other conditions.\n\nDespite being a GABA derivative, it doesn’t appear to be operating through a GABA-related mechanism.\n\nThe substance is also used recreationally due to its euphoric, anxiolytic, and pro-social effects.\n\nOverview Page (Including References): https://thedrugclassroom.com/video/pregabalin/\n\nReddit discussion: https://www.reddit.com/r/TheDrugClassroom/comments/6arnlf/pregabalin_lyrica/\n\nPregabalin = Lyrica; (S)-3-isobutyl-GABA\n————\n\nSpecial thanks to Benjamin/BronzeManul (YouTube.com/SnowkaYT) for helping with the legality info.\n————\n\nDonate to The Drug Classroom:\n\nhttps://www.patreon.com/TheDrugClassroom\n\nhttps://www.paypal.me/TheDrugClassroom\n\nBitcoin: 1HsjCYpBHKcVCaW4uKBraCGkc1LK8xoj1B\n\n————\n\nTimestamps\n\nEffects (medical) – 00:23\n\nEffects (non-medical \u0026 recreational) – 04:38\n\nPharmacology \u0026 Chemistry – 08:19\n\nHow It’s Used – 11:34\n\nHistory – 12:24\n\nLegal Status – 16:44\n\nSafety – 16:54\n\n————\n\nThank you to my Patreon supporters: Glen Marshall, RollSafe.org, Jonathon Dunn, Thomas Anaya, Ross Martin, Star Ape, michael hoogwater, Beau Jaco, and David Kernell.\n\n————\n\nFacebook – http://facebook.com/thedrugclassroom\nTwitter – http://twitter.com/drugclassroom\nEmail – firstname.lastname@example.org\n\n————\n\nThe Drug Classroom (TDC) is dedicated to providing the type of drug education everyone should have.

You tell me since you are the expert if this is helping me why does it make it so wrong they are helping us. Please answer these questions they are questions only I'm putting. I know it's not my brain I'm not confused I don't understand the big medical words that you all use I never have not even when I was young but I have suffered from this page all my life especially the arthritis now if this medications were called together for me why should I stop taking them? we have very good doctors one other thing my husband has had four major major back surgeries on his spine I don't know why Orthopedic Specialists put him through that and then he just tossed him aside my husband cannot straighten up the way she used to and he served the Marine Corps for 23 years he wasn't like that until he fell under the hands of this orthopedic surgeon.

Ain't nothing like a 900mg dose of lyricaI Have Autism écrit: I just wanted to say he’s 100% right that pregabalin is far superior than benzodiazepines because it makes you actually want to go out and form a bond socially, versus Xanax which is more like weed and opioids, yes weed is really safe but for me at least they make me not care about anything, they block out my problems mentally and physically when pregabalin helps me face and accept the problems I NEED to work on.Niceguy Jjjj écrit: Lyrica wait one hour take some benzo i love itElliot c écrit: "low drug interaction potential" lol I don't agree#jozzaYT écrit: I’m on it nowkyle johnson écrit: Been on it for 3 years it's a miracle for nerve damageJohn Dover écrit: I was prescribed this drug for anxiety in 2014. At one point I was taking 900mg a day. On top of many other psychiatric drugs. Citalopram, Bupropion, Concerta, Risperidone, and Solian. (Codeine addiction too) I was a total psychological and physiological mess… I don’t know how I’m still here. I am now only taking Citalopram, Lyrica and Risperidone I’m so sick of the side effects of these medications and I know deep down they are causing a lot of my issues. What should I do? I want complete discontinuation. What hell am I in for? Any feedback is appreciated as doctors/google really don’t tell the truth and make out it’s mild.aspec42 écrit: Prescribing this med to help with withdrawing from other drugs is criminal!Munirchowdhury Munirchowdhury écrit: Thank you.CheezitsChrist écrit: A lot of people are commenting on him repeating “compared the placebo”. This is both how drugs are approved by the FDA to be brought to market, but I believe Seth mentions it because he has researched it and found that its trials are more complete (less dropouts and less bias than most drugs) than most drugs brought to market. I can not say definitively what Seth what thinking, but this is my best guess- it’s not just a “duh- it’s better than placebo” comment.Србомбоница écrit: It helps sciatica truly but it does cause constipationN Tan écrit: i took over 3000mg+ one time and i was fine all i got was a good high and floaty feelingBlaggard999-_- écrit: Do Not Make A Habit of abusing Lyrica.

Don't even need to drink so muchI Have Autism écrit: 5:17 is where u learn how powerful this drug is!!!I Have Autism écrit: I’ve tried alprozolam (xanax), and want to go on this because it doesn’t impair you physically or mentally as Xanax does. I’m wondering if this actually is more recreational than Xanax because Xanax is more recreational than benzodiazepines because it’s a theinodiazepine like Clonazolam (not to be confused with Clonazepam). But you must test out each substance by only taking it 2 weeks after the last time you did any drug.
For example, if you drank alcohol within that two week time period, your experience with Xanax will have a greater blunted affect which isn’t recreational unless you’re just trying to escape reality or be sedated. Another example, if you had smoked weed close to when you took pregabalin, you’ll likely have a very paranoid, unpleasant dissociative experience that makes you more likely to have an akathesia experience where you can seriously hurt you or someone else because how uncomfortable you feel.Miriam Perkins écrit: Lyrica is okay for the first few months then all aspects of it go away, and it's torture to come off/ extreme weight gain is also a serious issue.James Brannigan écrit: Love TDC but would like to see this updated to account for severity and length of withdrawals, as well as all the other negatives that have come to light. I have found a 25% taper harder than heroin and benzo w/d combined now I've been on it a few years. A cpl of years back I'd have said it was an easier taper than benzos… boy does that change after time! I'm a drug libertarian but this shit is evil & finally the research is backing it.Caelum Aces écrit: Tried both Pregabalin and Gabapentin. The only drug which works for my neuropathic pain is Tapentadol.mjprice écrit: It also has negatives. Such as being so deep asleep your "I need a pee" waking fails to happen. What does happen is 15 minutes later your "There is something wrong with the bed" waking works. Then you find wet boxers and a patch of bed wetting. I had a week of this every night, by the end, my wife and I went from me very upset and her calming me down, to both getting up she changes the sheets and duvet cover and puts the one the absorbent puppy pads down. I got my ass into the shower and then took the soiled stuff down to the washing machine. Amazing how quickly you automated things! By the end, we didn't say a word until it was all sorted, and then we resumed the conversation we were having before dropping off. That was me dropping off mid-word.
It's damn strong stuff!mjprice écrit: aaabengi écrit: lyrica is a fucking god send, it removes my anxiety and helps me function better day-to-day with no negative effects. ive tried a ton of different medications for my issues and nothing is as good as lyrica, benzos make me feel like a different person and make me think differently but lyrica i still feel like i'm me. seriously underrated drug medicinally and recreationallySwansea 1984 écrit: I love pregablin. I started taking it for a trapped nerve in my spine but now I depend on them for anxiety and sleep. Just took 450MG feeling great . Awesome medication for anxiety especially when taken with a couple of Valium which I also rely on. I’d be a nervous wreck if I didn’t have pregablin and Valium.ThaGVPSon écrit: Why does this drug seem to have such an extreme person to person variability in it's effects?Patriot P A III écrit: I have been taking 450 mg aday for 17 years and have not notice anything but some relief from pain on my legs due to diabetic neuropathy. I was on the 75 Fentanyl patch for 4 years. The stupid doctor at the V A clinic in Fort Worth put me on it. My body would suck the patch up . I had to replace it every 2 days to where most people needed to switch out patches every 3 days. I got of it cold turkey and it wasn't fun. My family had to stay away from me. It was only me and my dog . It took me 3 weeks of hell but I made it. I will never take that mess again. If I get a doctor that wants to prescribe me that for all the pain I live with. I will kick his ass.Delta Design écrit: I've been following this channel for a while now, after having tried some of these drugs, what is described here is so accurate, that it is perfect for those who are interested in trying any of these drugs, who wants some truthful information about them first.TheDispather écrit: Lyrica sucks.Lucas Sonny écrit: AviWally P Harrwinkle 000 écrit: Once again thank u drug classroom for your insightful and informative videos!

I personally find 600mg in one dose better for my generalised anxiety and agoraphobia. I don’t find it to be euphoric, but it does make me feel less depressed.Mark Elsdon écrit: Pre gabs help me walk and stop the painKenneth White écrit: I currently live in Thailand and recently went to one of the government hospitals to get consultation for back surgery. Before I left America two and a half years ago a neurologist said I need back surgery to fix the L4, L5, & S1 but I opted out, out of fear, Hind site…LOL! Well with all the doctors and test I went through here in Thailand and although all the other doctors cleared me for surgery the spine surgeon here said that he did not recommend surgery due to my age (70) and medical history (heart disease) and prescribed Brillion 50mg three time daily which helped with the lower back and sciatica pain to a degree but did not stop the pain. I have been on Brillion 50mg for about two months now and thinking about increasing my dosage ever so slightly to see if I can improve its effects. I think this video was very informative and really mirrored the comments made by the spine surgeon here on its effects.pickle écrit: I popped 1500mg and snorted 500mg 2g in totalCharles Marvin Green écrit: I love the stuff, I take three of my 150mg at once since my Dr has ne down to just one norco a day.S Nomad écrit: Gabba Gabba Gabba hey, Gabba Gabba Gabba who?
