How to use Sertiva Tablet :
How Sertiva Tablet works:
Pregabalin belongs to anticonvulsants class of medicines. It is used to treat seizures. It is also helpful in treating nerve pain (neuropathic pain) which could be due to diabetes, shingles, or injury. It is also used in fibromyalgia (a long-lasting condition that may cause pain, muscle stiffness and tenderness, tiredness, and difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep).
Q. Pregabalin has varied roles, does it work in the same way for each disease?
No, Pregabalin works in different ways for different diseases. In epilepsy, it stops seizures by reducing the abnormal electrical activity in the brain. In nerve pain, it blocks pain messages travelling from brain to spine.
Q. I have been prescribed Pregabalin for pain due to shingles. When can I expect relief from pain?
For Pregabalin to work, the medicine requires time. It may require a few weeks to see full benefits. However, people have felt relief from pain after a week of starting Pregabalin.
Q. How long do I need to take Pregabalin?
Duration for the use of Pregabalin depends on the condition for which you are taking this medicine. If you are taking it for epilepsy, which if controlled by Pregabalin, you may have to continue it for years. If you are taking it for pain, it is likely that once your symptoms have gone you will have to continue taking it for several months to ensure stopping the problem from coming back.
Q. Is it necessary to continue taking Pregabalin even if I feel fine?
Even if you feel fine, you should not stop Pregabalin. If you are taking it for epilepsy and suddenly stop its consumption, you may have seizures that will not stop. If you are taking it for any other reason you may experience anxiety, difficulty in sleeping, feeling sick, pain, and sweating. These can be prevented if dose of Pregabalin is reduced gradually.
Q. Is Pregabalin addictive?
Addiction to Pregabalin is more common in people who take it for unauthorized reasons. Taking more than the recommended doses and taking it for long periods of time may also cause addiction. In addition to that, any person who has a history of drug abuse should never use Pregabalin. In case you feel you are becoming physically dependent on Pregabalin, inform your doctor immediately.
Q. Can I take diazepam and Pregabalin together?
Yes, Pregabalin and diazepam can be used together but there might be a chance of increased side effects, since both act on the brain to depress excessive activity.
Q. Can Pregabalin and gabapentin be taken together for fibromyalgia?
Yes, they can be used together but chances of side effects may be higher with their combined use.
Q. Can the use of Pregabalin cause weight gain?
Yes, Pregabalin may cause weight gain because it increases your hunger. Regular physical exercise and a balanced diet with low calorie food may help you keep your weight stable. Consult a dietician if you have any further concerns to keep your weight stable.
