FAQs

Q. What is Pregabel and what is it used for?

Pregabel belongs to anticonvulsants class of medicines. It is used to treat seizures. 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. Pregabel has varied roles, does it work in the same way for each disease?

No, Pregabel works in different ways for different diseases. In epilepsy, it stops seizures by reducing the abnormal electrical activity in the brain. In nerve pain, it blocks pain messages travelling from brain to spine.

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

For Pregabel 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 Pregabel.

Q. How long do I need to take Pregabel?

Duration for the use of Pregabel depends on the condition for which you are taking this medicine. If you are taking it for epilepsy, which if controlled by Pregabel, you may have to continue it for years. If you are taking it for pain, 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 Pregabel even if I feel fine?

Even if you feel fine, you should not stop Pregabel. 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 Pregabel is reduced gradually.

Q. Is Pregabel addictive?

Addiction to Pregabel is more common in people who take it for unauthorized reasons. Taking more than the recommended doses and taking it for long periods of time may also cause addiction. In addition to that, any person who has a history of drug abuse should never use Pregabel. In case you feel you are becoming physically dependent on Pregabel, inform your doctor immediately.

Q. Can I take diazepam and Pregabel together?

Yes, Pregabel 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 Pregabel 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.
