Would like to discuss Pregablin w/other test subjects
I did some research about two years ago and found that Europe is holding the patent for some reason. Our FDA wouldn't release it because they said they found that it caused tumors in one specific type of mouse. I don't understand this. I did read that the patient could be release in two to four years for us. I'm just waiting and hoping that we will be able to recieve it soon. I am going to do more research and will let you know what I can find out. If you find anything out please let me know.
The doctor that was conducting the experiment was interested in the effect the drug had on me and was affraid I would go back into my shell without it so we came up with a comprable combination of drugs that had a similar affect.Right now I am taking GABAPENTIN (neurontin) and CLONAZEPAM (klonopin). I don't know if you are aware of this but the main ingredient in PREGABLIN is GABAPENTIN. We wern't sure of the other ingredient because they weren't told . But we tried several combinations of things like neurontin with xanax,valium,and another one I don't remember. Those didn't work for me. The combination made me nervous. (That's a good thing because they are very addicting. We finely settled on the klonopin. This really works. I have been taking it for about seven years now and it works. I may have a panic attach on the average once a week. Before it was a daily thing. I couldn't leave the house.
If I could find enough people to give a testimony maybe we could do something together as a group to get this great medication "pregablin" back. It would change so many people's lives.
I live a normal life now and am working as a ward secretary in a hospital. But this combination is still not as good as the real thing.
Thank you for writing and please keep me posted. Feel free to give my address to anyone that is familiar with this drug or wants to talk about their situation or getting it in the US.
