If you have taken more pregabalin than the dosage recommended by the doctor who prescribed it to you, you must get medical help immediately – even if you do not feel any different.
While taking pregabalin, some people may think about hurting themselves or taking their own lives. You must go straight to hospital with your medicine if you have any of these thoughts.
Pregabalin can also cause other serious side effects: allergic reactions (difficulty breathing, swelling of your face or throat, patchy skin rashes), and other serious symptoms that you can find here. Go to a hospital with your medicine if you get any of these symptoms.
Pregabalin does not mix well with some other medicines and drugs.
Stopping pregabalin suddenly can cause serious side effects. Go to your doctor if you want to stop, or if you are having these effects.
You might feel sleepy or dizzy in the first few days after taking pregabalin. Do not drive a car, ride a bike or operate machines until you see how this affects you.
Use good contraception while you are taking pregabalin. If you take pregabalin while you are pregnant, it may affect the developing baby. Talk to your doctor or midwife about this and get their help.
