Pregabalin is used to control seizures (fits) and other conditions related to the nervous system. It can also be used for neuropathic (nerve) pain. Nerve pain may result from an injury to the nerves or parts of the nervous system. Nerve pain can manifest as a tingling sensation (pins and needles), stabbing pain, sharp pain or a burning sensation. It may also be used for other conditions which you can check with your doctor.
