How Pregabalin 150 mg Works:

  • By lowering the aberrant electrical activity in the brain caused by nerve pain, it prevents seizures in people with epilepsy.
  • It reduces anxiety by preventing the brain from generating the chemicals that cause anxiety.
  • It does this by interfering with the pain signals travelling from the brain and down the spine.

Uses of Pregabalin 150mg

Pregabalin 150mg targets nerve signals and brain activity to treat various conditions.

1. Treatment of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Pain:
  • Diabetes can damage nerves, causing burning, stabbing, or shooting pain in the hands and feet (peripheral neuropathy).
  • Pregabalin helps manage this pain by affecting how nerves transmit pain signals.
2. Treatment of Neuropathic Pain caused by Spinal Cord Injury:
  • Spinal cord injuries can also damage nerves, leading to chronic pain.
  • Pregabalin works similarly here, modulating pain signals for relief.
3. Treatment of Postherpetic Neuralgia (PHN):
  • Shingles (herpes zoster) is a viral infection causing a painful rash. After the rash clears, some people experience PHN, a burning nerve pain that can persist for months or even years.
  • Pregabalin 150 helps manage this ongoing pain by influencing nerve activity.
4. Treatment of Partial-Onset Seizures in Adults and Children (1 month+ old) with Adjunctive Therapy:
  • Partial-onset seizures start in one part of the brain and may or may not cause loss of consciousness.  
  • Pregabalin 150 is used as "adjunctive therapy," meaning it's added to other seizure medications for better control when those alone aren't sufficient.
  • The exact mechanism for seizure control is not fully understood, but it likely involves regulating abnormal electrical activity in the brain.
5. Management of Fibromyalgia:
  • Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain, fatigue, sleep problems, and mood issues.
  • While the cause is unknown, Pregabalin helps manage the pain component of fibromyalgia, possibly by affecting pain processing in the central nervous system.
6. Treatment of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) (Not always approved use):
  • GAD is characterized by excessive worry and anxiety that interferes with daily life.
  • Pregabalin's use for GAD is not universally approved by all regulatory bodies.
  • It's important to discuss this use with your doctor to see if it's an appropriate option for you.
