DOSE:
750 mg oral Pharms - Pregabalin (capsule)

BODY WEIGHT: 155 lb


The day started with me waking up at 11am on a Friday. It was summer, so I had nothing to do and was prescribed Lyrica for shingles that I got.

Lyrica is a nerve pain medication, so it numbs your body. I had a bottle of 30 75mg pills for the pain.

I took all 10 pills with a glass of water, and then ate some Ramen noodles because I heard that sometimes it upsets your stomach if you take the medication on an empty one.
I sat at my computer and played the waiting game for it to kick in. At 11:30am I started to feel the Lyrica kick in. It started with a body buzz, kind of similar to the start of a mushroom trip. I sat there perusing the internet as I slowly began to feel the drug overwhelm me.

I would say tat once you start to feel it, you are on an exponential incline to peaking. The come up is less intense than an MDMA come up where you skyrocket to the peak, but the Lyrica peak came fast.

The peak hit at 1:00, 1 Ĺ hours after I had taken it. I felt woozy like I was drunk, but everything felt amazing. The keyboard felt soft, and my couch felt like satin. The world was tilted from my view, and I couldnít walk straight.
As I walked upstairs from the basement, where the computer was, a trippy effect overwhelmed me. I was seeing slightly double of the stairs going up, and everything had a dreamlike effect. The sun was much brighter than normally, and the world seemed shiny,
As I went back downstairs, I noticed a speedy effect. I wanted to instant message everyone on AIM and just see what was up. I couldnít type correctly, and I felt like I was kind of drunk. After I got bored of talking to people, I went back upstairs and cleaned the bathroom. I felt like I had taken Adderall, as I was speedily cleaning everything, and getting sidetracked. What I mean is that I would clean up the clothes on the ground, and when I saw a razor, I began to shave, completely forgetting about the dirt clothes. Then I stared into the mirror, became a narcissist for a while, and then went to my room.

I was cleaning everything in sight, all woozy and feeling good. I went on a bike ride listening to my iPod, but only went down the street and then came back.

The feeling lasted for about 4 hours, then tapered off until 6pm. I still felt slight effects until 8pm. I would say the whole experience lasted about 8 hours. I felt sedated when I sat down, and speedy when I stood up.

I would say, that if I took an Adderall pill, a Klonopin pill, a really bad ecstasy pill, and 4-6 shots of hard liquor, it would be close to the experience that I had.

Lyrica is an interesting drug, and I donít really understand how it can contradict itself by making a person speedy, sedated, feeling good, and woozy.

All in all though, it was a wonderfully relaxing experience.
