Product Information

  • Description

    Pregabalin, a CNS-active drug with anti-epileptic, anticonvulsant, and anti-nociceptive (pain inhibitory) effects. Pregabalin is chemically designated as (S)-3-(amino methyl)-5-methylhexanoic acid. Pregabalin exerts its effects by binding to the α2δ subunit of voltage-dependent calcium channels, after binding; pregabalin modulates the release of several excitatory neurotransmitters including glutamate, substance-P, norepinephrine, and calcitonin gene related peptide. Pregabalin also prevents the alpha2-delta subunit from being trafficked from the dorsal root ganglia to the spinal dorsal horn, which may also contribute to the mechanism of action. It is effective in management of neuropathic pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy, post herpetic neuralgia, Adjunctive therapy for adult patients with partial onset seizures(with or without secondary generalization), fibromyalgia, pain associated with spinal cord injury, generalized anxiety disorder in adults.
