Pregabalin (other names Lyrica, Alzain, Axalid, Lecaent, Rewisca) Usage, Side Effects, Dose, Packing etc Type of medicine An anti-epileptic medicine Used for Epilepsy; neuropathic pain; general anxiety disorder Also called Lyrica®; Alzain®, Axalid®; Lecaent®; Rewisca® Available as Capsules and oral liquid medicine Pregabalin belongs to a group of medicines known as anti-epileptic medicines, although it is prescribed for the treatment of several different conditions. You may have been prescribed it for the treatment of partial seizures, which are a type of epilepsy. A seizure is a short episode of symptoms which is caused by a burst of abnormal electrical activity in the brain. With a partial seizure, the burst of electrical activity stays in one part of the brain. Therefore, you tend to have localised or 'focal' symptoms. Pregabalin works by reducing the abnormal electrical activity in the brain. It is taken alongside other medicines for epilepsy. Pregabalin is also prescribed to treat certain types of long-lasting pain caused by damage to nerves. This type of pain, called neuropathic pain, can be caused by a number of different conditions, including diabetes (where it is called diabetic neuropathy) and shingles (where it is called postherpetic neuralgia). Pregabalin can also be helpful in treating the symptoms of generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), particularly if other medicines which are more often prescribed for people with this condition are not suitable. GAD is a long-term condition where anxiety is a major symptom. Before taking pregabalin Some medicines are not suitable for people with certain conditions, and sometimes a medicine may only be used if extra care is taken. For these reasons, before you start taking pregabalin it is important that your doctor knows: Common pregabalin side-effects What can I do if I experience this? Feeling dizzy, or sleepy; blurred or double vision Do not drive and do not use tools or machines Headache, other aches and pains Drink plenty of water and ask your pharmacist to recommend a suitable painkiller. If the headaches continue, let your doctor know Dry mouth Try chewing sugar-free gum or sucking sugar-free sweets Feeling sick (nausea) or being sick (vomiting), wind (flatulence) Stick to simple meals - avoid rich or spicy food Constipation Eat a well-balanced diet and drink several glasses of water each day Diarrhoea Drink plenty of water to replace lost fluids
