Pain, anxiety, sleep disturbances — three targets for pregabalin with neuropathic back pain

V. Nikolaienko


The article deals with the advantages of pregabalin (Sudorega®) as a first-line drug for patients with chronic neuropathic back pain. Analgesic effect of the drug in combination with the ability to correct sleep disturbances and psychoemotional state allows achieving therapeutic success even in severe forms of the disease resistant to traditional therapy. Among other advantages of Sudorega® — a high safety profile, the absence of drug-drug interactions, which allow it to be used in patients with polymorbidity, in the elderly; price affordability.
