0 TO 18 YEARS OLD
The safety and efficacy have not been established

65 YEARS OLD AND ABOVE
Elderly patients may require a dose reduction of pregabalin due to a decreased renal function.

PATIENTS WITH RENAL IMPAIRMENT
Pregabalin is eliminated from the systemic circulation primarily by renal excretion as unchanged drug. As pregabalin clearance is directly proportional to creatinine clearance, dose reduction in patients with compromised renal function must be individualized according to creatinine clearance (Clcr). Pregabalin is removed effectively from plasma by hemodialysis (50% of drug in 4 hours). For patients receiving hemodialysis, the pregabalin daily dose should be adjusted based on renal function. In addition to the daily dose, a supplementary dose should be given immediately following every 4-hour hemodialysis treatment

PATIENTS WITH HEPATIC IMPAIRMENT
No dose adjustment is required for patients with hepatic impairment.

Indication

- Epilepsy
Pregabalin is indicated as adjunctive therapy in adults with partial seizures with or without secondary generalization.
- Generalized anxiety disorder
Pregabalin is indicated for the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) in adults.
