I've asked if I can try pregabalin for my Peripheral neuropathy, anxiety, benzodiazepine tolerance and insomnia and been refused. I've been told on the quiet that it is because it's too expensive for the NHS to prescribe it (though I would be quite willing to pay).
Benzodiazepine's have helped me a lot, but I have to limit usage due to tolerance and pregabalin sounds like an ideal longer term alternative.
There are a few people on these forums I'm sure that have some success with it. Are there any alternatives? Is anyone else being refused it?
