DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION | pregabalin bnf
Important Administration Instructions
LYRICA is given orally with or without food.
When discontinuing LYRICA, taper gradually over a minimum of 1 week [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
Because LYRICA is eliminated primarily by renal excretion, adjust the dose in adult patients with reduced renal function [see Dosing For Adult Patients With Renal Impairment].
Neuropathic Pain Associated With Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy In Adults
The maximum recommended dose of LYRICA is 100 mg three times a day (300 mg/day) in patients with creatinine clearance of at least 60 mL/min. Begin dosing at 50 mg three times a day (150 mg/day). The dose may be increased to 300 mg/day within 1 week based on efficacy and tolerability.
Although Pregabalin Capsules 30mg (Lyrica) was also studied at 600 mg/day, there is no evidence that this dose confers additional significant benefit and this dose was less well tolerated. In view of the dose-dependent adverse reactions, treatment with doses above 300 mg/day is not recommended [see ADVERSE REACTIONS].
Postherpetic Neuralgia In Adults
The recommended dose of LYRICA is 75 to 150 mg two times a day, or 50 to 100 mg three times a day (150 to 300 mg/day) in patients with creatinine clearance of at least 60 mL/min. Begin dosing at 75 mg two times a day, or 50 mg three times a day (150 mg/day). The dose may be increased to 300 mg/day within 1 week based on efficacy and tolerability.
Patients who do not experience sufficient pain relief following 2 to 4 weeks of treatment with 300 mg/day, and who are able to tolerate LYRICA, may be treated with up to 300 mg two times a day, or 200 mg three times a day (600 mg/day).
In view of the dose-dependent adverse reactions and the higher rate of treatment discontinuation due to adverse reactions, reserve dosing above 300 mg/day for those patients who have on-going pain and are tolerating 300 mg daily [see ADVERSE REACTIONS].
