FAQs

Q. What is Dcg Max and what is it used for?

Dcg Max belongs to anticonvulsants class of medicines. It is used to treat seizures and anxiety. It is also helpful in treating nerve pain (neuropathic pain) which could be due to diabetes, shingles, or injury. It is also used in fibromyalgia (a long-lasting condition that may cause pain, muscle stiffness and tenderness, tiredness, and difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep).

Q. Dcg Max has varied roles, does it work in the same way for each disease?

No, Dcg Max works in different ways for different diseases. In epilepsy, it stops seizures by reducing the abnormal electrical activity in the brain. In anxiety, it stops your brain from releasing chemicals that make you feel anxious. In nerve pain, it blocks pain messages travelling from brain to spine.

Q. I have been prescribed Dcg Max for pain due to shingles. When can I expect relief from pain?

For pregabalin to work, the medicine requires time. It may require a few weeks to see full benefits. However, people have felt relief from pain after a week of starting Dcg Max.

Q. How long do I need to take Dcg Max?

Duration for the use of Dcg Max depends on the condition for which you are taking this medicine. If you are taking it for epilepsy, which if controlled by Dcg Max, you may have to continue it for years. If you are taking it for pain or anxiety, it is likely that once your symptoms have gone you will have to continue taking it for several months to ensure stopping the problem from coming back.

Q. Is it necessary to continue taking Dcg Max even if I feel fine?

Even if you feel fine, you should not stop Dcg Max. If you are taking it for epilepsy and suddenly stop its consumption, you may have seizures that will not stop. If you are taking it for any other reason you may experience anxiety, difficulty in sleeping, feeling sick, pain, and sweating. These can be prevented if dose of Dcg Max is reduced gradually.

Q. Is Dcg Max addictive?

Addiction is more common in people who take Dcg Max for unauthorized indications and take it more than the dose prescribed. A person with a history of previous drug abuse should not be prescribed Dcg Max. Long-term use of pregabalin may result in addiction in some people. Inform your doctor if you feel you are becoming physically dependent on Dcg Max.

Q. Can I take diazepam and Dcg Max together?

Yes, Dcg Max and diazepam can be used together but there might be a chance of increased side effects, since both act on the brain to depress excessive activity.

Q. Can Dcg Max and gabapentin be taken together for fibromyalgia?

Yes, they can be used together but chances of side effects may be higher with their combined use.
