As with all Antiepileptic Drugs, pregabalin should be withdrawn gradually to minimize the potential of increased seizure frequency in patients with seizure disorders. If pregabalin is discontinued this should be done gradually over a minimum of 1 week.
Pregabalin should be discontinued immediately if symptoms of angioedema, such as facial, perioral or upper airway swelling occur.
Pregabalin associated weight gain is related to dose and duration of exposure. Some diabetic patients who gain weight on pregabalin treatment may need to adjust hypoglycemic medications.
Pregabalin may cause dizziness and somnolence and therefore may have an influence on the ability to drive or use machines or may increase the occurrence of accidental injuries especially in the elderly population.
Always consult your physician before using any medicine.
