Applications of the active ingredient pregabalin

Pregabalin has three applications. First, it is used against neurological (neuropathic) pain in adults. Such pain occurs, for example, as a late consequence of diabetes ( type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus), after a nerve inflammation caused by herpes viruses and after spinal cord injuries.

For adult epilepsy, pregabalin is used with other antiepileptic drugs. It is effective in certain seizures originating in parts of the brain (partial seizures), including those that subsequently spread to the whole brain (generalization).

Due to its anxiolytic effect, pregabalin is also approved for the treatment of general anxiety disorders in adults.

For the following application areas of Pregabalin , in-depth information is available:

  • Pain (mild to moderate)
  • anxiety disorders
  • epilepsies

mode of action of pregabalin

The transmission of stimuli along the nerves depends, among other things, on the influx of the mineral calcium. For this purpose special calcium channels are opened in the nerve cell wall. As a result, neurotransmitters such as glutamate, norepinephrine and so-called substance P are released. These neurotransmitters trigger further reactions of the nervous system.

Pregabalin hinders the opening of the calcium channels and thus restricts the influx of calcium into the nerve endings. The increased release of neurotransmitters is thus reduced to the normal level. This helps Pregabalin relieve nerve-related pain, suppress brain cramps in epilepsy, and relieve anxiety.

Potential Lyrica side effects may include:

    Lyrica for Dizziness

    I took tanner for the first time Lyrica, at noon 75, in the evening 150. Waking up this morning was terrifying. Severe dizziness, drowsiness and no clear vision. You get scared of such a drug. I’m not sure about this afternoon. My neurologist prescribed it for me. I have RestlesLegs and Breast and Bone Cancer.

    Side effects: Blurred vision; Dizziness

    Lyrica for Dizziness; A headache

    I can not recommend Lyrica. It was prescribed to me because of my degenerative spinal pain, lumbar spine, ISG and celiac joint arthrosis. 75-0-75-0 It should be increased to 150-0150-0. I felt a leaden tiredness about 20 minutes after taking it, arms, hands and legs were paralyzed. The head felt like someone had spanned it with an iron ring that was getting tighter and tighter. I could not see clearly anymore. Everything was blurry. I got an unbearable printhead pain. I could not walk anymore because of the dizziness. I felt I had a blanket in my mouth, it was so dry. I stopped the medication. I can not recommend this medicine

    Lyrica for Pain (joint); Disc prolapse; Fibromyalgia; Pain (acute)

    I have been taking Tilidin for several years. First, I got Novaminsulfone … but did not help. After that I got Tramadol … was not effective for me either. For about 5 years I take Tilidine comp. First, normally dosed 30-30-30 …. now I’m at 70-70-70 +80 (+ sometimes at night to 80 drops) + 1Kaps.Lyrica in the morning. I get additional Lyrica for 2 months, because the effect of the drops is no longer sufficient, but occasionally get stomach pain. It works very well though. So far I have not been able to find any other side effects. Certainly I am in a certain dependence … still better than having to endure this pain on a daily basis.

    Side effects: Dependence

    Lyrica for Borderline; Social phobia; Nerve damage; Depression

    I used to take Doxepin 100mg in the evening, so I was finally able to sleep again, but was tired and impotent the next day. Although I gained three kilos, which was quite desirable because I also suffered from an eating disorder, the depression could only be moderated a little. But there was no more suicide attempt. Dry mouth. Since I additionally take pregabalin (because of an accident, from it the damage of the nerves on the foot), the side effects are intensified. After taking drunkenness and strong fatigue, as well as ings. 12 kilos of weight gain. Dry mouth, but word finding problems have only been recorded since taking Pregabalin.

    Lyrica for Thinking disorders; Social phobia; Depression

    I have only been taking Lyrica 75mg for one day with Citalopram 20mg (antidepressants). I suffer for years from a social phobia, in addition to depression, nervousness, strong pondering, which sometimes turns into turf. Immediately after taking it, about 3 hours, I noticed an effect and something like a light daze. Half an hour later you noticed a kind of happiness, which is persistent, you became calmer and the brooding stopped unbelievably abruptly! That was really stressful, because it had really depressive phases. Now I have a feeling that makes the reflection absolutely uninteresting, it does not matter anymore. Really redeeming! You can laugh again and feel really balanced after the short time, much better in terms of the condition. Let’s see how it looks in 3 weeks when the full effect begins. I am already positively surprised! Had other medicines, but I’ve never had such a good effect! My psychotherapist recommended it to me, had very good experiences with his patients and I can only agree. The feeling is really like being light on drugs (in a positive sense), I do not care, I feel better. 🙂

    Side effects: Dizziness

    Lyrica for Intervertebral discs-op; Neuralgia

    I had a two-time spinal fusion in May 08. In the abdominal op, a plexus injury with complete peroneural pleura developed. the pain in my lower leg was immense. At first I got again oxogesic-tbl, sevredol, durogesic plaster and a lot more. after completing the ahb, my pain doctor then gave me lyrica. I should increase up to 300 mg / die. at about 225 mg I’m already and I have to say that the side effects described above for me all do not apply, except maybe really more appetite, but so far no real weight gain, despite several weeks of ingestion. The effect is good, the pain in the nerves are largely under control, but they strengthen themselves a bit and I must always take 25 mg. a nice side effect is that my nocturnal sleep is great. the problems of previously with several hours of awake are gone at the moment. If all that remains, I’m thrilled with Lyrica.

    Side effects: No side effects

    Lyrica for Phantom pain

    After about 10 days I got joint pain in my fingers. In the left hand mainly the middle finger. In the right hand pointing, middle and ring fingers. When closing the hand to the fist blocked the joints. After several cautious movements, his fingers clenched into a fist painlessly. My doctor said it could be old age. It felt weird and dropped lyrics. It took weeks until I was almost painless. Therefore: never more lyric

    Lyrica for Intervertebral discs-op; Arthrosis; Pain (acute); Depression; Pain (chronic)

    I am taking the indicated medications now for a good 2 years at this dosage: Morphine 100 1-1-1-0 Lyrica 300 1-0-1-0 Mirtazapine neuraxpharm 30mg 0-0-1-0 Syneudon 50mg 0-0-1- 0 b.After 3×20 Trf. Novaminsulfone So far, it gets me quite well, only it’s just not enough for my Schmerzsymtomatik. Before that, I had tested other medicines and had been prescribing for a while until my last KKH, where I went with this og. Dosage has been discharged. The combination morphine & amp; Lyrica has actually taken me quite a few steps forward, only it is temporarily insufficient. Will this on occasion again discuss with my doctor, what we can do there ??! ?? At side effects I have massive sweats, no matter how cold or warm it is. I do not have constipation for the most part, so I only use the laxative as needed. Otherwise, only bothers me the strong weight gain, although I do not know exactly whether it comes from the antidepressants or the pain medication ??? That bothers me so much, because I can not do great sports (only if I have a good day, then I can probably go swimming, but only if it is just a warm bathing day) and every kilo Too much to do in various places. I hope again and again that the doctors can either eliminate my symptoms, or such an effective drug comes on the market, which has little or better, no side effects! But this will probably remain my eternal dream Wish all readers a possible pain-free life

    Side effects: Sweats; Increase in weight
