Drug Class: Analgesics, Anticonvulsants, Fibromyalgia Agents
What is pregabalin, and what is it used for?
Pregabalin is an anticonvulsant (antiepileptic) and a pain-relieving (analgesic) medication. Pregabalin is used to treat seizures and for nerve pain (neuralgia) associated with neurological disorders that include diabetic neuropathy, postherpetic neuralgia and fibromyalgia. Pregabalin prevents seizures and neuralgia by blocking the transmission of electrical signals in the brain.
Pregabalin works by binding to a subunit of the calcium channels in nerve cells (neurons) and preventing the inflow of calcium ions. Blockage of calcium influx into the neurons prevents the conduction of electrical impulses by excitatory neurotransmitters such as glutamate and norepinephrine, and reduces the transmission of pain signals and/or seizure activity in the brain.
Pregabalin is used to treat the following conditions:
- Diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain
- Postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles
- Fibromyalgia, a condition of heightened pain sensitivity and abnormal pain processing
- Neuropathic pain with spinal cord injuries
- Adult and pediatric partial onset seizure, a type of seizure that starts with abnormal electrical activity in one part of the brain
- Do not take pregabalin if you are hypersensitive to pregabalin or any of its components.
- Pregabalin may impair the ability to drive or perform hazardous tasks.
- Antiepileptic drugs increase the risk of suicidal thoughts or behavior in patients taking these drugs.
- Use with caution in cardiovascular disease (heart failure) and renal impairment.
- May cause prolongation of PR interval.
- Muscle wasting (rhabdomyolysis) may occur.
- Pregabalin may potentiate the effects of other sedatives.

Migraines and Seizures
Migraines are a type of headache and seizures are the main symptom of epilepsy. Migraine headaches and seizures are two different neurological problems that have similar signs, symptoms, and auras, for example, sensitivity to light (photophobia) and sound, irritability, nausea, and vomiting. Symptoms unique to migraine and migraine auras are water retention, problems sleeping, appetite changes, and talkativeness. Symptoms unique to seizure and seizures auras are depression, a feeling of heaviness, a feeling that a seizure is approaching, and depression. Many of the symptoms of migraine and seizures are the same, however, seizures do not cause migraines; however, people who have seizures are twice as likely to have migraines and vice-versa. People who have migraines are twice as likely to have seizures, and people with seizures are twice as likely to have migraines; however, one condition does not cause the other.
