Pregabalin for Acute and Chronic Sciatica

Posted by Akheel Syed on 24 March, 2017

Treatment with pregabalin did not significantly reduce the intensity of leg pain associated with sciatica and did not significantly improve other outcomes, as compared with placebo, over the course of 8 weeks. The incidence of adverse events was significantly higher in the pregabalin group than in the placebo group.
