GPs could see pregabalin restrictions lifted after Pfizer loses court appeal


Pregabalin ought to be a controlled drug. So very many of my patients, ( I work in substance abuse), are hooked on Pregabalin. One growns in despair at the stuff GPs seem to be handing out like smarties. In addition to the crack, heroin and cannabis that my patients buy off the street are all the goodies that the GPs throw at them therby adding to the medical and social problems; the pregabalin, the Zopiclone, the Diazepam. The list seems inexhaustible.
