Pregabalin works by reducing the abnormal electrical activity in the brain. It is taken alongside other medicines for epilepsy. 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.
Pregabalin, also known as β-isobutyl-γ-Aminobutyric acid (β-isobutyl-GABA) and sold under the trade name Lyrica among others, is a medication used to in the treatment of epilepsy, neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia and generalized anxiety disorder. Its use for epilepsy is as an add-on therapy for partial seizures with or without secondary generalization in adults.
Pregabalin is a structural analogue of the neurotransmitter GABA, consequently it belongs to the γ-Aminobutyric acid analogue class of antiepileptic drugs. Its a ion channel modulator that has analgesic, anticonvulsant, sedative, and anxiolytic properties. Pregabalin is a potent gabapentinoid and close analogue of GABOB (β-hydroxy-GABA), baclofen (β-(4-chlorophenyl)-GABA), and phenibut (β-phenyl-GABA).
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 is 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 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).
