UP TO 17 YEARS
The safety and efficacy of pregabalin in children below the age of 12 years and in adolescents (12-17 years of age) have not been established. The use in children is not recommended.

65 YEARS OLD AND ABOVE
Elderly patients may require a dose reduction of pregabalin due to a decreased renal function.

DISCONTINUATION OF PREGABALIN
In accordance with current clinical practice, if pregabalin has to be discontinued, it is recommended this should be done gradually over a minimum of 1 week independent of the indication.

PATIENTS WITH HEPATIC IMPAIRMENT
No dose adjustment is required for patients with hepatic impairment.

PATIENTS WITH RENAL IMPAIRMENT
Pregabalin is eliminated from the systemic circulation primarily by renal excretion as unchanged drug. As pregabalin clearance is directly proportional to creatinine clearance, dose reduction in patients with compromised renal function must be individualized according to creatinine clearance (Clcr).
