About PREGAMET CAPSULE

PREGAMET CAPSULE belongs to the class of medications ‘anticonvulsants’ used in the treatment of neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain is a chronic (long-term) progressive nerve disease that causes nerve pain due to nerve damage or the nervous system's malfunctioning. It is mostly seen in patients who had suffered a trauma or nerve injury, diabetes, vitamin deficiencies, cancer, multiple sclerosis (disease of the brain and spinal cord), shingles (a viral infection), and HIV.

PREGAMET CAPSULE is a combination of two medicines: Pregabalin and Methylcobalamin. Pregabalin acts by decreasing the pain signal's number sent by a damaged nerve in the body. On the other hand, Methylcobalamin helps rejuvenate and protect damaged nerve cells by producing a substance called myelin (outer protective layer of nerve cell - neuron).

PREGAMET CAPSULE is available in the form of tablets. You should take this medicine as prescribed by your doctor. The common side-effects of PREGAMET CAPSULE are dizziness, drowsiness, headache, anorexia (loss of appetite), nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, headache, hot sensation (burning pain), vision problems, and diaphoresis (sweating). Inform your doctor if any of these side-effects persist.

Do not take PREGAMET CAPSULE if you are allergic to ‘Pregabalin’ and ‘Methylcobalamin’ or any contents before taking PREGAMET CAPSULE if you have a history of heart diseases, liver or kidney disease, alcoholism, or drug abuse.  It should not be used in children and adolescents below 18 years.
