Epilepsy: Pregabalin Milpharm is used to treat a certain form of epilepsy (partial

Milpharm in addition to yourcurrent treatment. Pregabalin Milpharm is not
intended to be used alone, but should always be used in combination with other
anti-epileptic treatment.

Anxiety Disorder(GAD). The symptoms of GAD are prolonged excessive anxiety
and worry that are difficult to control.GAD canalso cause restlessness or feeling
keyed up or on edge, being easily fatigued (tired), having difficulty concentrating
or mind going blank, feeling irritable, having muscle tension or sleep disturbance.
