Belfast’s Pregabalin Addiction | Drugs Map of Britain

By Brian Lemay 100 comments


I’ve already hit that once.
HE LAUGHS HE SNIFFS Power. Lovely. Kenneth has just picked up
an emergency dose of Pregabalin from the chemist, a drug
he’s prescribed to treat anxiety. Pregabalin is prescribed to treat
anxiety, epilepsy and nerve pain. In Northern Ireland, prescriptions
have increased by 27% in the last six years, and the drug is
more widely prescribed here than any other region in the UK. Experts have warned the Government about the dangers of addiction
for some users. This was Kenneth four hours
before picking up his emergency dose of Pregabalin,
also known as Lyrica or buds. A knife. Fuck. In Northern Ireland, there’s another
growing problem with Pregabalin. It’s also being sold illegally on
the streets and online… ..along with other
prescription medication. I travelled to a small town
outside Belfast… ..where 17-year-old Padraig
is on the phone to a dealer. List the things, if you wanted to,
you could get from him. How do you know if they’re pure
or not, or if they’re real? On another occasion, I catch up with Padraig
and his friend Brandon after he’s picked up
from his dealer. Northern Ireland has suffered decades of brutal violence
and sectarian conflict… ..one reason why prescription-drug
abuse is a particular problem here. Doctors have a history of
prescribing drugs to people affected by the mental and physical trauma. Prescription-drug abuse spiralled in areas that were most affected by
the violence. When Kenneth was seven, an historic agreement was signed to
bring peace to Northern Ireland. But an armed and brutal
paramilitary group continued to dominate
the Protestant part of Belfast where Kenneth was brought up. In Northern Ireland, paramilitaries
are infamous for killing or maiming people dealing drugs
on their patch without permission. Kenneth showed me where he hid
from the group who came after him. Kenneth fled to Scotland,
where he lived for 18 months. He returned to Belfast, but soon
became addicted to the Valium prescribed by his doctor
for anxiety. I caught up again with Brandon
and Padraig. They’re not prescribed Pregabalin, but buy it on the street to mix with
other drugs and alcohol. Later that night,
Brandon was taking diazepam… ..also known as Valium, or blues. Kenneth lives with his girlfriend,
Ashley. In 2015 they were jailed for GBH and
are both currently out on licence. Yeah, see? Good boy. Good boy!
Ah, no biting. Before he went to prison, Kenneth
was given Valium for his anxiety. Once inside,
he was prescribed Pregabalin. And is that an aim for you?
Huh? Four deaths in a day. Police believe several of them
are drug-related. Pregabalin, also known by the brand
name Lyrica or the street name bud, is the latest drug to hit
Northern Ireland. In recent years, deaths linked to Pregabalin abuse
have risen in Northern Ireland. These drugs can be
extremely dangerous. They’re just as addictive as heroin and, if taken in uncontrolled
circumstances, just as deadly. More people here are dying from
misusing drugs like Lyrica than on our roads. Some fatalities have been linked to counterfeit tablets
sold illegally on the street. In August 2016, 29-year-old Daniel Hillman took
Pregabalin he bought from a dealer. Hours later, he killed himself. His mother Caroline showed me the alleyway where her son’s body
was found. Daniel’s Aunt Philly arrived
on the scene shortly after his body
was discovered. Daniel was prescribed Pregabalin. His family say he became addicted, which led to him buying more on the
black market to feed his habit. Upstairs, in Daniel’s bedroom,
Philly and Caroline explained how his addiction to Pregabalin
affected his behaviour and their relationship
before his suicide. Cos it’s Dan, Dan, Dan. Running amok. I didn’t want to say that! HE COUGHS AND RETCHES Jesus! Kenneth has just taken
600 milligrams of Pregabalin… ..the maximum prescribed daily dose. HE HAWKS AND RETCHES Kenneth says he wants to lose
his dependence on Pregabalin. Hello, Kenny! He’s meeting Chris, a drugs
counsellor, for some advice. Misuse of prescription drugs
like Pregabalin is presenting major new challenges for the police
in Northern Ireland. You were face-down around four foot
away from a deep puddle… Sharon is on the front line. She manages a police custody unit
in a small town outside Belfast. And do you take any medication
or any drugs of any kind? She’s seen an increasing link between people abusing prescription
drugs and breaking the law. I’ve been a custody sergeant here
for approximately four years, and inside those four years I have
seen a rise of roughly 80 to 90% of detained persons presenting
using prescribed medication. A lot of them are saying
that they’re on Lyrica, diazepam, tramadol. I’ll see if I can get you
a phone call. If persons come into custody under the influence of
prescription medication, sometimes they say
they have taken nothing, when we know from how they’re
presenting to us that they have. Sharon says that prescription-drug
abuse is placing a heavier burden on police resources. Lyrica in particular
would be a very, very common drug that we find that they’re taking
at the moment. We would have to put people
on constant obs, which involves an officer staying at
the cell with them for whatever length of time is deemed necessary,
which has a knock-on effect of fewer officers on the street then to deal
with the public who need help. We find if people do come in, particularly on some
prescription medications, they can’t control their behaviour.
They are very aggressive. Spitting would be a big thing.
And… Do you get spat on a lot? I do. I do. Yes.
And it’s not very pleasant. She’s also witnessed
the tragedy of addiction. A very sad case. There was one
person who would have been in regularly with me and I would have
come down here to the cell and sat and talked to him, and he would have
cried. He would have cried. He said he didn’t want to be on the
prescription drugs that he was on, he didn’t want to be taking them,
he was trying to get off. I would have spoken to him about
the help that was out there and tried to give him
some sort of guidance, but then, unfortunately, one day he
took too much Lyrica and he died. I caught up with Kenneth again to
find out if he’d made any progress with fighting
his Pregabalin addiction. His face
wasn’t the only sign of change. For Kenneth,
still on the maximum daily dose, there’s a long way to go.

I'm currently trying to wean off Lyrica and it's so difficult I live in Mexico and here Drs don't know how to treat my withdrawal symptoms I don't know what to do it's hell living like these I take 2100mg a day it's the only way I can function now and I'm so tired of this the stuff doesn't even get me high it just solves my withdrawal symptoms. I think of suicide all the time I lost my family my girl my life Lyrica it's killing me slowly it's been 5 yrs my body it's beaten up and my mind is going psychotic I have panic attacks all the time. I just don't know what to do. guns are expensive and hard to get here in Mexico I had I would have already killed myself. I don't want to kill my self other way it will be slow . I'm so tired of this life and feel like a piece of garbage a piece of worth less shit. I'm crying right now I can't take it anymore.

Here in the United States of America we have a misunderstanding we don't have an opiate problemp we have an addiction problem because there are individuals that use the medication for recreation purposes only we're clearly Tramadol for example it is opiate-based is a very good medication when used properly and what happens these people take so much of the opiates at one time that it loses its effectiveness lo and behold he take more than they b , addicted but there are people that really need it and they should not be ashamed there are people that are abusing that medication so remember it's not an opiate problem it's an addiction problem if you agree with me give me a hoot and you all have a great evening

Because of people like this they have now made Pregabalin a controlled medication and by the way Pregabalin doesn't work by snorting up the nose he is under the illusion it works that way but he's Brain is fucked he probably snorts paracetamol and tic-tac's , people need this medication for cancer and serious nerve pain I can't believe this shit, these individuals are destroying the NHS

I'm someone who is quite partial to the occasional drug use.
I like a weed and back in the day – I loved LSD.
Two days ago – a friend gave me a 300mg Pregablin tablet because I have been dealing with some shenanigans recently and I have been stressed.
I hated this drug. It is horrible.
There was nothing pleasurable about it.
I felt a horrible dizziness whenever I stood up.
Watching TV was almost impossible because my eyes had a mind of their own. My left eye wanted to scan the ceiling and my right eye wanted to scan the walls.
Going to the toilet meant bumping in to everything enroute.
All day I felt exhausted.
No – I did not like this drug at all.

Heres quality. Scripts are no joke and alot of people have benefits and friends with access to keep them. Meanwhile victims are scratching their skin off friending for specific and very regulated fix. While sensible options to treat issues rather than symptoms are avoided like free electricity.

Its crazy I take Gabbapentin for my nerve pain and it helps a little but I never got super high on it. I dont know what these fools are doing but all I feel from it is a little tingleing on my skin. Then again I dont snort it like that jackass did.

yeah i dont get this, i know we got all different tolerances etc but in my experience i had to take like 900 mg and even then it was jsut this kinda drunky wobbily vision slightly euphoric feeling its jsut a waste and you can never recrate that same feeling the next day youd have to keep taking more n more as the tolerance goes up quickly.. the amount you have to take also oral has better bioavalability than snorting you would get higher by eating them all, any addicition is bad its just this suprised me..

BS = these are people WHO ABUSE DRUGS, these prescription based drugs are fine if you dont abuse them, if you drink too much you get Alcohol Poisoning, if you wore the strongest nicotine patch and smoked the strongest cigarettes, you'd overdose on Nicotine. The problem is the people, I am a Chartered Engineer, with no criminal record, and pills like Pregabalin, Diazepam, and the such are fine when taken by the doctors guidelines. These People want to get high, but without having to pay for it. So they take more of what they got.

25:00 This is true, since the respiratory system is breathable and not blocking with drugs, and the digestive system is better at dealing with all the foods that the body needs, even drugs,

probably drug addicts are afraid of stomach acids, which are great in dealing with every enemy 🙂
All is about the brain to get different way by bypassing the body – not yet guys,
your body deserves respect than your brain becomes more happy therefore your heart, your conscience,
your Soul, your world around 🙂
People are unable to cheat the nature, the body, the God !
Otherwise are they ready to pay the price ?

I certainly hope that these people are doing ok in their lives now.I used to be addicted to Xanax and all related medications but have been sober for 12 years now. The road to recovery is a long one but has been so worth it. I would average about 15 to 20 mg of Xanax a day. Sometimes more. God I don't miss those horrible times. So many comments here are just downright wrong. People need to get a clue that addiction is not a choice. it is a disease and is curable. The stigma that surrounds addiction is DISGUSTING!
