Pharmacotherapeutic Group: Anti-convulsant
Pharmacodynamic Properties: Pregabalin is an anticonvulsant drug which binds to the α2δ (alpha2 delta) subunit of the voltage-dependent calcium channel in the central nervous system. This reduces calcium influx into the nerve terminals. Pregabalin also decreases the release of neurotransmitters such as glutamate, noradrenaline and substance P, possibly accounting for its actions in vivo to reduce neuronal excitability and seizures Pregabalin increases neuronal GABA levels by producing a dose-dependent increase in glutamic acid decarboxylase activity.
Absorption: Rapidly absorbed after oral doses. Peak plasma concentrations are achieved within 1.5 hours. Bioavailability: >90%
