For the past nine years since being diagnosed with HPPD, I've been on a hell of a journey to find the right medication but here's what I've been consistently taking for several years:

  • Lamotrigine 150mg once daily: Primarily for my BPD, but it's also helped with HPPD symptoms to some extent.
  • Clonidine 0.5mg as needed: For managing sleep, works great.

  • Pregabalin 200mg twice daily: This has been suchhhh a game-changer for my anxiety and sleep issues. It's the best medication I've tried for my symptoms. but it does come with a downside of weight gain because of the bottomless pit of an appetite it causes :// But still, I swear by this drug, it really saved my life. After struggling with debilitating anxiety and DPDR, I found a psychiatrist who took my HPPD seriously and this medication was such a turning point in my life. I do want to say though, withdrawal is pretty rough so always be careful.

I'm new to this site, so I'm curious if anyone else has had similar experiences with pregabalin or if it didn't work for them. Let me know!!

Hey, welcome to the site! 

I never had any success with pregabalin, but i don't really respond to anything other than benzos.. Glad to hear it's working for you!
