Rivitam-PG Tablet 10's 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.
Rivitam-PG Tablet 10's is a combination of two medicines: Pregabalin and Methylcobalamin. Pregabalin acts by decreasing the pain signals 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).

Rivitam-PG Tablet 10's is a combination of two drugs: Pregabalin and Methylcobalamin. Pregabalin is an anticonvulsant that affects the brain's chemicals that send pain signals across the nervous system. It works by binding to the specific site on voltage-gated calcium channels (responsible for excitatory response), thereby decreasing brain activity. This effect helps in relieving nerve pain and lowers the risk of seizures. On the other hand, Methylcobalamin is a form of vitamin B12 that helps rejuvenate and protect damaged nerve cells by producing a substance called myelin (outer protective layer of nerve cells). Together, Rivitam-PG Tablet 10's helps in providing relief from neuropathic pain and improved nerve signal conduction.
