  • I am waiting for a diskectomy on two lower vertabrae. The Pregabalin helps with sleeping and avoiding cramps and pains in my right leg. However i have suffered with violent diarrea since 5 days. I am now wondering if the drug is now causing this reaction as i have now been taking it for 3 months. I understand it has a build up effect in your system and perhaps i have now become intolerant of it
