Because it is a controlled drug and that way it can be monitored.

Why is it classified as a controlled drug in the US??

You've got me on that one. Our idiot government thinks you can get high on it, and it will be abused. Our idiot government thinks we are a nation of drug abusers who can't take care of ourselves.

We are just someone to sample what they need tested.. I can't count the meds I have took in the past three years I know my Medicare part D want cover the ones I need. I take one day at a time.

After reading this I ‘talktofrank’ (the UK government drug awareness website). I put Pregabalin into the search engine expecting nothing to come up and this is what it said:
Pregabalin can produce feelings of relaxation, calmness and euphoria, like tranquilisers. It can enhance the euphoric effects of other drugs, like opiates, and is likely to increase the risks when taken in this way.
Well, I can honestly say that I never felt euphoric on this drug taken alone or with opiate drugs and I was on every does from 75mg – maximum daily amount. I tell you what I did feel, my thighs rubbing together when they never use to due to the weight gain!!! They need to put this on the website too.

Sorry ‘Frank’ also says: Pregabalin can cause dizziness, drowsiness and confusion, all of which can put you at risk of hurting yourself. And it does mention weight gain and some other stuff. However it is not a controlled drug in the UK…not yet anyway
