Information about Cap. Premax-75mg

Premax Capsule contains Pregabalin as the active ingredient which is an antiepileptic medication. It decreases pain and seizures by modulating calcium channel activity of the nerve cells.

Pregabalin binds presynaptically to the alpha2-delta subunit of the voltage-gated calcium channels in central nervous system tissues located in the brain and spinal cord. The mechanism of action has not been fully elucidated but studies suggest that pregabalin produces a disruption of calcium channel traficking or a reduction of calcium currents. The inhibition of subunits of voltage-gated calcium channels reduces calcium release which in order inhibits the release of several neurotransmitters. Studies also suggest that the descending noradrenergic and serotonergic pathways originating from the brainstem may be involved with the mechanism of pregabalin. Interestingly, although pregabalin is a structural derivative of inhibitory neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), it does not bind directly to GABA or benzodiazepine receptors.




Premax is used for the management of neuropathic pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy or spinal cord injury, and postherpetic neuralgia.
