You can take Pregabid 50 Capsule with or without food. If you have epilepsy you may be taking it for many years. If you have nerve pain or anxiety the treatment may be shorter. The dose and duration of treatment will depend on what you are taking it for and will be adjusted for you and your condition, probably starting at a low dose and working up to one which suits you. Follow your doctor’s instructions. Take this medicine at the same time each day to get the most benefit. It takes at least a few weeks for the medicine to work. Continue taking it until your doctor tells you to stop. If you have epilepsy, missing doses or stopping this medicine suddenly may trigger a seizure/fit. You should avoid drinking alcohol as it may increase some side effects.
The side effects of this medicine are usually mild and go away by themselves. The most common ones are feeling sleepy and feeling dizzy. Other side effects include an increased appetite, weight gain, difficulty concentrating, mood changes, blurred vision, confusion, and swelling in your hands and feet. Most side effects are not serious and do not need medical attention. Talk to your doctor about potential side effects and ways you might prevent or cope with them.
Before taking the medicine you should tell your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding. Inform your doctor if you are taking any other medicines, as some medicines (including antacids and alcohol) do affect the way it works and can increase the chances of side effects.
