AWARENESS IS THE FIRST STEP TO HEALING
- Dean Ornish
This website is meant to serve as a source of information, resources and support surrounding Pregabalin and Gabapentin. It is a place for people looking to learn more about the dangers of Gabapentinoids or how to safely withdraw using proven methods and protocols. While we recognize that some people have success on these medications or are able to withdraw easily, many more do not. This website focuses on reducing the harm caused by these medications. We are committed to exposing the side effects and withdrawal caused by Gabapentinoids and are biased against these drugs.
Beyond Gabapentinoids is also a peer support site, a place
to connect with others going through the difficulties of withdrawal. Valuable information for caregivers, friends and physicians can also be found among these pages.
I hope you find stepping stones within this site to move your health in a positive direction.
WHAT ARE GABAPENTINOIDS
Gabapentinoids are a class of anticonvulsant drugs including Pregabalin (LyricaTM Lyrica CR TM) and Gabapentin (NeurontinTM, Horizant TM) that are increasingly being prescribed for pain as physicians and patients seek alternatives to opioids. The most common conditions it is used to treat are Fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain. It is also approved in Europe to treat anxiety. As its popularity grows among physicians, it is increasingly being used off label to treat conditions such as menopause, bladder issues, or even depression. The widespread and often indiscriminate prescribing is not supported by robust evidence and the side effects of these drugs include the very conditions they are being prescribed to treat.
