Thank you for the query.
Ideally speaking if the given medications are giving you relief from your symptoms then yes, they are enough for you. Vernace and Cobasoft are not essential if your diet is balanced and hence taking anti-oxidants or extra vitamins is not anyway recommended. You can try taking only pregabalin tablet and may go up in the doses on your own as the maximum dose in humans is many times more than what you have been taking (75 or 150 mg of tab Pregabalin). You should feel symptom free with this.
In case you have Vit B12 deficiency then instead of taking oral vitamin supplements, you should be given injectable vit B 12 for the neuropathy as oral doses hardly work.
In short, if your symptoms of neuropathy do not get controlled with increased dose of pregabalin then check for Vit B12 level and if less then get treated with injectable vit B12.
Most importantly keep your sugar control better for best results of the neuropathy treatment.
I hope you got the answer. Take care.

After taking Pregabalin tablet, i am suffering from dizzines. Can i continue with this?
Answered by Dr. Madhuri Patil 52 minutes later
If the dizziness does not go after a few days' use of pregabalin then you must stop it and take tab Tryptomer with the help of your physician or Diabetologist. Some people respond to plain Gabapentin well instead of pregabalin. Again you need to discuss this with your Diabetologist for proper prescription.
Take care.

My husband was prescribed an additional dose of Lyrica. He was taking two pills in the evening, and was prescribed an additional one in the morning. He suffers from arthritis and nerve based migraines and general nerve pain stemming both from the arthritis and several bulging dics in the neck. My question is this...would the extra dose cause an increase in appetite and an energy spike? Will this ease off? Is this something that he should report to his doctor?
