About PBREN 150MG CAPSULE

PBREN 150MG CAPSULE belongs to a group of medications called 'anti-convulsants', primarily used in the prevention of neuropathic pain, epilepsy (seizure episodes), fibromyalgia (musculoskeletal pain), and neuralgia (pain due to damaged/irritated nerve). Neuropathic pain is chronic nerve pain usually caused by damaged nerves due to a variety of diseases like diabetes, shingles (viral infection that causes a painful rash), spinal cord injury, and injuries to tissue, muscles, or joints.

PBREN 150MG CAPSULE contains 'Pregabalin', which works by calming the damaged or overactive nerves in the body that may cause nerve or musculoskeletal pain or seizures. Besides this, it also decreases the number of pain signals sent out by damaged nerves in the body.

In some cases, PBREN 150MG CAPSULE might cause side effects like dizziness, somnolence (sleepiness/drowsiness), dry mouth, oedema (fluid overload with swelling), blurred vision, weight gain and abnormal thinking (difficulty with concentration/attention). Most of these side effects do not require medical attention. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, consult a doctor.

Tell your doctor if you are facing symptoms of suicidal ideation or behaviour, drug addiction, chronic pulmonary insufficiency, muscle pain, soreness, weakness, kidney, liver, or heart diseases.  Caution is required before giving PBREN 150MG CAPSULE to pregnant or breastfeeding women. The safety and effectiveness in children less than 18 years of age have not been established, so PBREN 150MG CAPSULE should not be given to them.

    Disease/Condition Glossary

Symptoms of nerve pain sensation are hot, burning, throbbing, shooting, stabbing, sharp, cramping, tingling, and numbness. 

    Fibromyalgia (musculoskeletal pain): It is a chronic condition that may cause pain, muscle stiffness and tenderness, tiredness, difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep and mental distress, an impact on physical and social functioning and overall quality of life.

    Epilepsy (fits): It is a nervous system disorder with a sudden rush of electricity in the brain due to disturbed nerve cell (neuron) activity in the brain. Seizures are of two types, namely: generalized and partial seizures. Generalized seizures affect the entire brain, whereas partial seizures affect only a part of the brain. Seizures can cause uncontrollable muscle twitches and spasms. Stronger seizures can make people confused or unconscious. Possible causes include high fever, trauma, genetic disorder, brain injury, or stroke.

    FAQs

    How does PBREN 150MG CAPSULE work?

    PBREN 150MG CAPSULE works by blocking the pain centre that interferes with pain messages that travel through the brain and spine (central nervous system). In epilepsy, it prevents episodes of fits by reducing the abnormal electrical activity in the brain and calming the overactive nerves.

    Can PBREN 150MG CAPSULE cause weight gain?

    Yes, PBREN 150MG CAPSULE may cause weight gain because it increases your hunger. However, regular physical exercise and a balanced diet with low-calorie food may help you keep your weight stable. Please consult the doctor if you have any further concerns about keeping your weight stable.

    Can I take PBREN 150MG CAPSULE with painkillers like tramadol?

    No, you are not recommended to take PBREN 150MG CAPSULE with tramadol as co-administration of these medicines may cause breathing problems, drowsiness, and even lead to a stage of coma. So, before using PBREN 150MG CAPSULE with painkillers like oxycodone or any other opioid analgesics, you are advised to contact your doctor so that the dosage may be adjusted accordingly to use safely.
