Review and down-titration of Pregabalin

With our colleagues in Pharmacy, we have been working on guidelines to help GPs in their review of patients who have been taking Pregabalin for prolonged periods.  In some cases patients will remain on repeat presriptions of this medication at considerable cost and sometimes side-effects, for limited benefit. 

These guidelines can be accessed here.
