Pregabalin Side Effects

Rare Pregabalin Side Effects

Rare side effects of pregabalin are also possible. These side effects occurred in less than 1 percent of people taking pregabalin in clinical trials. Because these side effects are so uncommon, it can be difficult to tell whether they are actually caused by pregabalin or by factors unrelated to the medication.
 
These less common side effects include but are not limited to:
 
  • Sensitivity to the sun
  • A stiff neck
  • Hangovers
  • Canker sores
  • Anemia
  • Hiccups
  • Hair loss (see Lyrica and Hair Loss)
  • Dry skin
  • Dry eyes
  • Taste changes
  • Kidney stones
  • Menstrual problems.
     

Final Thoughts

It is possible that you may experience some or none of the pregabalin side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking this drug. Also let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
