21. Trial of Pregabalin for Acute and Chronic Sciatica. (PubMed)

Trial of Pregabalin for Acute and Chronic Sciatica. Sciatica can be disabling, and evidence regarding medical treatments is limited. Pregabalin is effective in the treatment of some types of neuropathic pain. This study examined whether pregabalin may reduce the intensity of sciatica.We conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of pregabalin in patients with sciatica. Patients were randomly assigned to receive either pregabalin at a dose of 150 mg per day that was adjusted (...) underwent randomization, of whom 108 received pregabalin and 101 received placebo; after randomization, 2 patients in the pregabalin group were determined to be ineligible and were excluded from the analyses. At week 8, the mean unadjusted leg-pain intensity score was 3.7 in the pregabalin group and 3.1 in the placebo group (adjusted mean difference, 0.5; 95% confidence interval [CI], -0.2 to 1.2; P=0.19). At week 52, the mean unadjusted leg-pain intensity score was 3.4 in the pregabalin group and 3.0

25. Pregabalin for essential tremor. (PubMed)

Pregabalin for essential tremor. Essential tremor is one of the most common movement disorders. Treatment primarily consists of pharmacological agents. While primidone and propranolol are well-established treatments in clinical practice, they may be ineffective in 25% to 55% of patients and can produce serious adverse events in a large percentage of them. For these reasons, it is worth evaluating the treatment alternatives for essential tremor. Some specialists have suggested that pregabalin (...) could be a potentially useful agent, but there is uncertainty about its efficacy and safety.To assess the effects of pregabalin versus placebo or other treatment for essential tremor in adults.We performed a systematic search without language restrictions to identify all relevant trials up to December 2015. We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), MEDLINE, Embase, NICE, ClinicalTrials.gov, and the World Health Organization International Clinical Trials Registry

28. Prior Opioid Use Does Not Impact the Response to Pregabalin in Patients With Fibromyalgia (PubMed)

Prior Opioid Use Does Not Impact the Response to Pregabalin in Patients With Fibromyalgia Fibromyalgia (FM) is a chronic pain disorder for which pregabalin is an approved treatment in the United States. Although opioids are not a recommended treatment option, they continue to be used by many FM patients. The impact of patients' prior opioid use on their subsequent response to pregabalin has not been assessed.This was a pooled analysis of 4 clinical trials to assess the efficacy of pregabalin (...) in FM patients both with and without prior opioid use. Patients were divided into those using opioids prior to the trial and those who were not. The change in least squares mean pain score (assessed by 0 to 10 numeric rating scale) with pregabalin compared with placebo was assessed together with FM symptoms, anxiety, and depression.There were 2062 patients in the analysis set, including 371 patients with prior opioid use. Equal numbers of patients were treated with placebo, pregabalin 300 mg/d

29. Pregnancy outcome following maternal exposure to pregabalin may call for concern (PubMed)

Pregnancy outcome following maternal exposure to pregabalin may call for concern To investigate pregnancy outcomes following maternal use of pregabalin.This multicenter, observational prospective cohort study compared pregnancy outcomes in women exposed to pregabalin with those of matched controls (not exposed to any medications known to be teratogenic or to any antiepileptic drugs). Teratology Information Services systematically collected data between 2004 and 2013.Data were collected from 164 (...) exposed pregnancies and 656 controls. A significantly higher major birth defect rate in the pregabalin group was observed after exclusion of chromosomal aberration syndromes, and when cases with exposure during first trimester of pregnancy were analyzed separately (7/116 [6.0%] vs 12/580 [2.1%]; odds ratio 3.0, 95% confidence interval 1.2-7.9, p = 0.03). The rate of live births was lower in the pregabalin group (71.9% vs 85.2%, p < 0.001), primarily due to a higher rate of both elective (9.8% vs 5.0

30. Pregabalin and Speech Pathology Combination Therapy for Refractory Chronic Cough: A Randomized Controlled Trial (PubMed)

Pregabalin and Speech Pathology Combination Therapy for Refractory Chronic Cough: A Randomized Controlled Trial Chronic refractory cough (CRC) is a difficult problem to treat. Speech pathology treatment (SPT) improves symptoms but resolution is incomplete. Centrally acting neuromodulators also improve cough symptoms, but not cough reflex sensitivity, and the effect is short-lived. We hypothesized that combined SPT and centrally acting neuromodulators would have a superior outcome than SPT alone (...) . Our goal was to determine whether combined pregabalin and SPT is more effective than SPT alone.Randomized placebo controlled trial. Forty patients with CRC were randomly assigned to receive either combined SPT and pregabalin 300 mg daily or combined SPT and placebo. Outcome measures were collected at baseline, end of treatment, and 4 weeks after the end of treatment. Primary outcome measures were cough frequency using the Leicester Cough Monitor, cough severity using a visual analog scale

33. Efficacy and Safety of Pregabalin in the Treatment of Patients With Painful Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy and Pain on Walking (PubMed)

Efficacy and Safety of Pregabalin in the Treatment of Patients With Painful Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy and Pain on Walking This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter, 2-period crossover study (two 6-week treatment periods separated by a 2-week washout period) evaluated the efficacy and safety of pregabalin (150 to 300 mg/d) for treatment of pain and pain on walking in patients with painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) who experienced pain while walking.Co-primary (...) efficacy endpoints were: (1) mean pain score (last 7 daily pain diary scores, 0 to 10 numeric rating scale at end of each treatment period) and (2) DPN pain on walking (0 to 10 numeric rating scale immediately after walking 50 feet [15.2 m] on flat surface). Secondary endpoints included other pain parameters, patient-reported sleep, health-related quality of life, and safety measures.Two hundred three patients were treated (pregabalin, n=198; placebo, n=186), with no statistically significant treatment

34. Perioperative use of pregabalin for acute pain-a systematic review and meta-analysis (PubMed)

Perioperative use of pregabalin for acute pain-a systematic review and meta-analysis Evidence supporting postoperative pain management using pregabalin as an adjunct intervention across various surgical pain models is lacking. The objective of this systematic review was to evaluate "model-specific" comparative effectiveness and harms of pregabalin following a previously published systematic review protocol. MEDLINE, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials were searched (...) from inception through August 2013. Data were screened and single extraction with independent verification and dual risk of bias assessment was performed. Quality of evidence (QoE) was rated using the GRADE approach. Primary outcomes were pain relief at rest and on movement and reduction in postoperative analgesic consumption. A total of 1423 records were screened, and 43 studies were included. Perioperative pregabalin resulted in: 16% (95% confidence interval [CI], 9%-21%) reduction in analgesic

35. Imipramine and pregabalin combination for painful polyneuropathy: a randomized controlled trial (PubMed)

Imipramine and pregabalin combination for painful polyneuropathy: a randomized controlled trial Monotherapy with first-line drugs for neuropathic pain often fails to provide sufficient pain relief or has unacceptable side effects because of the need for high doses.
