INTRODUCTION

PREGEB NT TABLET is a combination of Nortriptyline and Pregabalin which belongs to the group of medicines called Tricyclic antidepressants and Anticonvulsants respectively. PREGEB NT TABLET is indicated for the treatment of neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain is a chronic painful nerve condition caused by damage or disease affecting the somatosensory (sense of touch) nervous system.

It can be caused by injury or disease of spinal cord and/or brain, prolonged diabetes mellitus (Ex. diabetic neuropathy), infectious diseases (such as HIV infection or leprosy), chemotherapy, auto-immune disease (Ex. Guillain-Barre syndrome), post-herpetic neuralgia (a long-lasting painful condition that affects the areas around the skin and nerve fibers where shingles were present), fibromyalgia (generalized musculoskeletal pain with fatigue and altered sleep, memory, and mood) or by other metabolic dysfunctions.

Symptoms include shooting, burning or stabbing pain for normal daily activities that are typically not painful, tingling and numbness or spontaneous pain (pain without stimulus).

Continue to take PREGEB NT TABLET as long as your doctor tells you to do so because premature discontinuation can cause withdrawal symptoms like insomnia, headache, nausea, anxiety, diarrhea, depression, convulsion and excessive perspiration.

PREGEB NT TABLET can increase the risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior in some individuals and therefore patients (or caregivers) should seek immediate medical advice if any such signs emerge.

PREGEB NT TABLET is not recommended for use in patients having severe heart or kidney disease. Consult your doctor before taking PREGEB NT TABLET. This medicine is not recommended for use in pregnant women unless advised by the doctor and it is not recommended for use in breastfeeding women.

PREGEB NT TABLET is strictly not recommended for use in children aged below 6 years and it should be taken with caution in elderly patients (aged 65 years or above).

The most common side effects of taking PREGEB NT TABLET are nausea, vomiting, constipation, dizziness, headache, flatulence and dry mouth. Consult your doctor if any of the side effects worsen.     

USES OF PREGEB NT TABLET

  • Treats neuropathic pain

HOW PREGEB NT TABLET WORKS

PREGEB NT TABLET effectively relieves nerve pain, where nortriptyline acts by inhibiting the movement of pain signals from the brain by blocking the reuptake of certain chemical messengers (norepinephrine and serotonin) at the pre-synapse and pregabalin acts by interfering with influx of calcium and various pain signals travelling through the damaged nerves and the brain, thus leading to a significant pain relief in various neuropathic pain states.
