Pregabalin


Pregabalin

Pros: Does relieve the pain in my feet!

Cons: Expensive! Many side effects, for me!

Overall: My PCP took me off Gabapentin because I was swinging off the ceiling fan....and was really hyperactive! Then my PCP put me on Cymbalta which took the pain away but, also made me really hyperactive and ready to do something really stupid! After that he put me on Pregabalin 100 mg. 3X daily, couldn't tolerate that, cut the dosage to 100 mg. at 8 PM and was having the same hyperactivity, very sleepy while driving and real difficult to concentrate! He dropped the dose down to 50 mg. at 8 PM and I have taken this for about two weeks. So far I have not had any negative side effects but, I am starting to get pain in my toes and feet and am wondering if, this is going to work at all! Am wondering what drug is next and what kind of side effects that will bring......? Just another "Speed Bump" in the road of a diabetic!

Accu-Chek Spirit Insulin Pump


Awesome meter!
 

Pros: Easy to use. Comfortable. Support from everyone is fabulous.

Cons: Hard to fill the unit itself if you have poor eyesight. With reading glasses it works fine. It's actually easier than filling a syringe.

Overall: Wonderful! The support received from everyone at Roche has been phenomenal. I am so happy I chose this route to deliver my insulin.
