I took 1200 mg yesterday at 8 in the morning, (barely felt it)
can I take like 1500 or 2000 mg today and still feel something? I know you should wait atleast a day inbetween but my anxiety is through the roof can't barely make myself go to the kitchen (i have already taken 2.5 mg xanax and 500 ml of 7% beer that isnt working but maybe it can work to boost the lyrica?)

If you take it at those doses following 1200mg which didn't get you there yesterday it probably won't get you high, but if you're suffering anxiety because of an addiction to it it should take care of those symptoms

^ Thanks. I'm mainly interested from a harm reduction standpoint i.e. could combining benzos with a high dose of pregabalin be dangerous? But it would be nice to know about cross-tolerance, too.
I doubt very much it would be dangerous as both substances have a extremely high margin of security (difference between active dose and LD50). Potentiation is very likely so don't go overboard. In my case that mix is out of question because it would produce high somnolence without a doubt.
I tried pregabalin having drunk before and couldn't feel it much at usual doses. Very weird, was just a one time thing. After that I made sure I didn't drink before pregabalin.

Can confirm that diazepam significantly potentiates pregabalin. Yesterday I had 750mg Lyrica and popped 10mg diazepam about seven hours later, and it completely re-invigorated the pregabalin effects.

I experience this exactly, it's pointless for me to drink on pregabalin it almost completely nullifies it

Pregabalin at 75mg is definitely noticeable. I'm not even joking.

I don't know where anyone gets 300mg as a starting dose. That's like 2g phenibut as a starting recreational dose where 500mg is more appropriate.

I suppose yes if your nieve to the medication you would feel 75mg but 300mg will probably get you smashed for most of the day, it's like saying take a quarter of an E and see how that is.

The number of times when I was younger I would just drop a pill into a stranger's mouth at a rave thinking that motherfucker will be flying all night. We didn't think about it from a harm reduction perspective because we were drug people and that isn't how we thought, it was just a goal to get people as fucked up and high as possible, I introduced my younger brother to liberty caps one autumn when he was 10, I was 16 we were out exercising our family dog in the a place called the yellow hills where I used to go with my friends to pick shrooms every year, I had been introduced to them when I was about 12 it's kind of a right of passage thing where I'm from that we learn amazing psychedelic substances just grow in cow fields where we live. We got high as fuck that day and he says it was one of the greatest days he remembers and I agree. I thought at the time, I need to introduce him to this shit so I need to give him enough that he has a proper trip. 😂He survived.

Another time we had driven about 3 hours to this rave and the sun had come up, the DJ had switched to playing reggae so that was our cue to chip. As we staggered towards where we had parked in some other field I saw an old friend I hadn't seen in years and turned out one of the friends I was with also knew this guy, we chatted for a couple of minutes then he says to my friend I arrived with "hey man stick out your tongue" which he instantly did without thinking and he droppered him, I said "hey bruv what was that?" He says "liquid sunshine" (acid) with a massive beaming grin on his face I said "oh fuck he's our fucking driver!" I had taken some whizz (base amphet) a couple of pills and some mdma powder which I had dosed by just sticking a rolled up 20 into a bag of powdered Crystal and snorting till the pain hit my nostril so I was still smashed, my girlfriend was rolling on some pills we had all been dancing all night so we were screwed. He was so distraught he says "oh fuck it, I'm so sorry mate I didn't even think." So we did the only thing we could do, he dosed me and we set off home asap to see if we could make it. After an hour we pulled into the hard shoulder on the motorway and I looked at my friend and was like ".....oh fuck we are not in a boat are we?" Because for the past who knows how long I thought we were in a boat powering up a river coasting on the water. My gf pops up from the back seat and says "no but I think we have been weaving for a while." We decided to limp to the service station and plot up there mainlining coffee til we could get home. Anyway I have gone off a bit but what I'm saying is that sometimes as drug people we are like hey man neck this pill it's awesome (I often hand out a few 300mg to some of my friends who like a buzz and we get smashed and it's blinding) but I suppose here it's about helping people to do whatever they are gonna do as safely as possible as a Dr would titrate you up on a medication til it's effective or identified as not working for you. However we often forget and think yeah drop 300mg it won't harm you but you will know all about the effects and whether it's for you. I guess occasionally we need
reminding. 😁

Peace and love

Does anyone else feel weird when mixing tramadol and pregabalin? It's like you're about to seizuring I thought that pregabalin would raise the seizure threshold of tramadol but not apparently.

How much do you use, may i ask? When i take 200mg tramadol i take 150mg pregabalin, never an issue but this is low. I know that if i take say 900mg pregabalin i get that feeling by itself a bit already. .. or even 450 taken at once for that matter
