I had a stroke,may 2006, I have worsening pain in my right side and was given pregablin 7 months ago. It dulls the pain a bit but the side effects are still not going away. I am dizzy, sleepy, confused, forgetful, etc.

Comment:
Although when I started on this drug, it worked really good. As my symtoms worsened this drug became less effective, even with a higher dosage. I started out taking 100 mgs. Now I'm up to 600mgs abd it's not touching the pain.
