Pregabalin belongs to antiepileptic medications, which has been associated with increased risk of suicidal thinking and behavior. Anyone considering the use of Pregabalin must balance this risk of suicide with the clinical need. Patients who are started on therapy should be closely observed for clinical worsening, suicidal thoughts, or unusual changes in behavior.

The most common side effects of Pregabalin are: dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, edema, blurred vision, double vision, weight gain, fatigue, abnormal gait, tremor, and difficulty concentrating.

Other side effects of Pregabalin can also be appeared, including: constipation, increased appetite, nausea, flatulence, amnesia, disorientation, myoclonus, heart failure, low blood pressure, vomiting, reduced blood platelet counts, and increased blood creatinine kinase levels. Increased creatinine kinase can be a sign of muscle injury.

If these effects of Pregabalin are mild, they may go away within a few days or a couple of weeks. If the adverse reaction of Pregabalin is more severe or don’t go away, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

 

What is the dosage for Pregabalin?

Pregabalin may be taken with or without food.

When Pregabalin is to treat diabetic peripheral neuropathy, the initial dose of Pregabalin for neuropathic pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy is 50mg three times a day. The dose may be increased to a maximum dose of 100mg 3 times daily after one week.

When Pregabalin is used for treating postherpetic neuralgia, the recommended dose of Pregabalin for postherpetic neuralgia is 75 to 150mg twice daily or 50 to 100mg three times daily. The dose of Pregabalin may be increased to 100mg 3 times daily after one week. If pain relief is inadequate after 2 to 4 weeks of treatment at 300mg per day, the dose of Pregabalin may be increased to 300mg twice daily or 200mg three times daily. Doses greater than 300mg cause more side effects.

If using Pregabalin to treat neuropathic pain associated with spinal cord injury, the dose of Pregabalin for treating is 150 to 600mg daily. Begin dosing at 75mg two times a day and an increase to 150mg two times daily after one week if response is inadequate.

Pregabalin can be used to treat seizures. The recommended dose of Pregabalin for treating seizures is 150 to 600mg per day divided into 2 or 3 doses, starting at 150mg daily and increasing based on response and tolerability.

If Pregabalin treats fibromyalgia, fibromyalgia is treated with 300 to 450 mg per day in 2 or 3 divided doses.

 

What is the difference between Pregabalin and Gabapentin?

Pregabalin is an oral medication that is chemically related to Gabapentin.

Pregabalin and Gabapentin are both anticonvulsants used to treat epileptic seizures and a variety of other medical conditions. As medications that are very similar, they do have their differences. The main difference is that Pregabalin is the more potent of the two medications. Other differences between the Pregabalin and Gabapentin are that the body absorbs Pregabalin at a faster rate, and Pregabalin also causes less dose-dependent side effects than Gabapentin.

While Pregabalin and Gabapentin are used to treat epileptic seizures, they can be used to treat other conditions as well. Pregabalin is also used to treat neuropathic pain and fibromyalgia. In addition, Gabapentin also treats postherpetic neuralgia pan and restless legs syndrome.

Since Pregabalin is more potent than Gabapentin, it takes a smaller dose of Pregabalin to equal the same level of potency in a dose of Gabapentin. This means a patient would take a lesser dose of Pregabalin as opposed to a bigger dose of Gabapentin. The absorption properties of Pregabalin also work to its advantage as it ensures a steadier intake of the medication. Pregabalin and Gabapentin both cause side effects but Gabapentin tends to cause more side effects that depend on the dosage of the medication.
