What is Pregabalin?

Pregabalin is a prescription only medicine used to treat epilepsy, neuropathic pain (which is the result of damage to nerve tissue which can produce a burning, shooting or scalding feeling) and anxiety.

A prescription only medicine can only be prescribed following a consultation with a doctor.

Pregabalin can produce feelings of relaxation, calmness and euphoria, like tranquilisers.

It can enhance the euphoric effects of other drugs, like opiates, and is likely to increase the risks when taken in this way.

Pregabalin is manufactured as either white, white/orange or orange capsules.
