ive only ever tried low doses of valium but they were useful in reducing anxiety. This said they only lasted so long but were good prn.
Ive been on lyrica since september last year and take 100mg x 2 a day. Its longer acting and has sideefects like feeling drunk, derealisation and cognitive blunting especially memory when first started. Its good for anxiety though and sideeffects do wear off, prob the best ive taken but not perfect.

If no man is an island i will take the palm trees and sand.

Lyrica seems to have many tolerance issues and i'm not sure wheter they can be slowed down with nmda antagonists like benzo's.

yeah you do gain a tolerance to the lyrica but i find it still to be quite effective! Ive heard somewhere if you combine them both it potentiates the benzo although ive not needed to try this.

Ive been reading that gotu kola in high doses is really simular to lyrica, i quite like gotu kola but its effects are limited as my issues are mostly dopaminergic related and thus only stims really work, but it seems to be a very good herb.

Lyrica and gabapentin work, but they make you stupid and say stupid things, making it really hard to talk to people. I do not find this issue with benzos. But tolerance is not an issue for me because my social anxiety is no longer so bad I need to take something daily. I'm trying to take wellburin to address the cognitive side effects of lyrica, something to offset the side effects is necessary IMO unless you're a god and lyrica is nootropic for you.
