Nervigesic Pregabalin IP 300 mg is an anti-epileptic medicine, also called an anticonvulsant. It works by slowing down impulses in the brain that cause seizures. Pregabalin also affects chemicals in the brain that send pain signals across the nervous system.
Pregabalin is used to treat pain caused by fibromyalgia, or nerve pain in people with diabetes (diabetic neuropathy). It is also used to treat herpes zoster (post-herpetic neuralgia), or spinal cord injuries. It is also used with other medications to treat partial onset seizures in adults and children who are at least 1 month old.
There are also other uses for Nervigesic Pregabalin IP 300 mg which may not be listed in this medication guide.
Pregabalin can cause a severe allergic reaction. Stop taking pregabalin and seek emergency medical help if you have hives or blisters on your skin, trouble breathing, or swelling in your face, mouth, or throat. If you have diabetes or heart problems, call your doctor if you have weight gain or swelling in your hands or feet while taking pregabalin.
Some people have thoughts about suicide while taking pregabalin. Stay alert to changes in your mood or symptoms. Report any new or worsening symptoms to your doctor.
Do not stop using pregabalin suddenly, even if you feel fine. Stopping suddenly may cause withdrawal symptoms.

Tell a doctor or your GP if you have ever had:

Some people have thoughts about suicide while taking pregabalin. Your doctor will need to check your progress at regular visits. Your family or other caregivers should also be alert to changes in your mood or symptoms.
Seizure control is very important during pregnancy, and having a seizure could harm both mother and baby. Do not start or stop taking pregabalin without your doctor’s advice, and tell your doctor right away if you become pregnant. If pregnant, your name may be listed on a pregnancy registry to track the effects of pregabalin on the baby.
Nervigesic Pregabalin IP 300 mg can decrease sperm count and may affect fertility in men (your ability to have children). In animal studies, pregabalin also caused birth defects in the offspring of males treated with this medicine. However, it is not known whether these effects would occur in humans. Ask a doctor or your GP about your risk.
Women should not breastfeed while using pregabalin.
