      I didn't get tinnitus from lower doses but only when I reached 300 mg. I almost always had a spike 1 hour after my afternoon dosage (second 150 mg intake).

      Unfortunately, I might need higher doses to deal with burning brain from benzo tolerance. Some ENTs specialized in tinnitus where I live even prescribe Pregabalin for it.

      I am still not tapering off Lyrica and using 225 mg daily. I am switching ADs (Sertraline to Fluvoxamine) and keeping the other treatments the same to not confound stuff.

      Thank God my tinnitus is the same volume-wise, and it seems even less intrusive.

      I intend to taper off Lyrica once I find my Luvox sweet spot.

      I take Gabapentin. No adverse effect on my tinnitus. I take 400 mg twice a day.

      So... any new inputs on this? I am over the fence on updosing it as it helps with benzo tolerance/withdrawal symptoms.

      Pregabalin
      I wouldn't take Pregabalin. I continue to blame it for my tinnitus. And even if I were to get tinnitus later in life, at least I'd just have that. Pregabalin also ruined my memory, vision, gave me terrible side effects and intrusive thoughts... terrible stuff.

      I am aware that I will need to taper it slowly after being on 225 mg for more than 2 months. It helps me a bunch with my worst benzo tolerance symptoms but I don't want to gamble regarding tinnitus.

      My neurologist said to take 150 mg a day for 3 months, instead of Dulotexine, which gave me horrible side effects. Hope it works better with this one.

      What do you take Pregabalin for?

      I started taking PQQ yesterday and I am thinking I am going to like this supplement.

      I don't have any experience with Pregabalin, but Gabapentin increased my tinnitus while I was on it. It went back to normal after discontinuing. You'll probably just have to try a low dosage first and see what happens.
