I've been experimenting with Pregabalin for a while now, which means my body already has some tolerance. This time I decided to take six 150mg capsules all at once at 13:00 in the afternoon, on an empty stomach.

I find that Pregabalin takes a while to to work its magic, it usually takes 2 (or more) hours to kick in for me. Food seems to make the experience weaker, and it takes more time to kick in. No food for me then. At the latter stages of the experience however, I find that I get really hungry, but if I eat the effects die down quickly. Taking it with soda also seems to help.

I start getting double vision and slight loss of balance. I decide to put some music. I also decide to up the ante, taking another 150mg.

T: 2:15
Music is enjoyable, but not mind-blowing. I smoke a cigarette, then I decide to play a strategy computer game.

T: 3:30
I've been playing the game and time is flying by. There's a floating sensation, and anything I try to do is enjoyable. For some reason, I take another 150mg, making the total 1200mg.

T: 3:40
I feel content. Everything is alright, and there are no worries. I feel good, still floating, and I get some slight CEVs. I smoke another cigarette. Feeling alright, which is a change since I'm usually moody and down. The effects are subtle and come in waves.
The effects are subtle and come in waves.

T: 4:20
I am focused, everything I try to do demands my complete attention. My balance is somewhat off. I'm starting to feel very horny, and a bit hungry. Tactile sensations are good and touching my body feels great.

T: 6:00
Now Pregabalin effects seem to be in full mode. I've been playing the computer game, listening to music and smoking cigs. In the dark. Walking is funny, and my vision has traces. Whenever I look at something and move my head and eyes, there is a delay. My sister's home and I attempt a conversation, talking feels good. There is no euphoria, I just don't have a care in the world.

T: 7:00
The effects are dying down. In an effort to keep it going, I parachute another 150mg. Total 1350mg in my system. I'm not that hungry, but I eat a Twix bar. I feel like I want to take a walk. The thing is, I'm still feeling it but throughout all the experience there has been a need to do something. I spent most of it on the computer and listening to music, though.

In conclusion, this is great stuff for when I have a day off just to chill and relax.
