What is the function of Pregabalin?

Pregabalin is one of the most promising drugs in the development of epilepsy treatment drugs, with better curative effect and more convenient administration. Pregabalin can also be used to treat pain and anxiety such as neuralgia after herpes zoster.

Pregabalin is a new type of gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor agonist, which can block voltage-dependent calcium channels and reduce the release of neurotransmitters. Pregabalin is mainly used for the treatment of peripheral neuralgia and adjuvant treatment of localized seizures parts.

Pregabalin is a commonly used drug in neurology, which has anti-epileptic, sedative and anti-anxiety effects. The antiepileptic mechanism of Pregabalin is currently unclear. In animal experimental studies, Pregabalin has anticonvulsant effects on various types of epilepsy animal models. Animal model activity of Pregabalin is several times stronger than that of Gabapentin. Clinically, Pregabalin is generally used for the following diseases. One is to improve neuralgia, including peripheral neuralgia caused by diabetic peripheral neuropathy, sequelae of herpes zoster, sciatica, trigeminal neuralgia, postoperative toothache, and arthritis. The second is anti-epileptic, which is used for the auxiliary treatment of partial epilepsy. The third is anti-anxiety, which is used for the auxiliary treatment of anxiety and social phobia.
