Mechanism of action:
Combination of Pregabalin and Methylcobalamin not only decreases the release of neurotransmitters but also helps in regeneration of the myelin sheath.
Pregabalin also has got analgesic activity which reduces the pain associated with neuropathy. Thus the combination of Pregabalin and Methylcobalamin is useful for arresting the progress of diabetic neuropathy and also helps in relieving the pain associated with neuropathy. Methylcobalamin is a co-factor of methionine
synthase, an enzyme that transfers methyl groups to homocysteine to regenerate methionine. Elevated homocysteine levels are a risk factor for coronary artery
disease. Methionine can be transformed to S-adenoxylmethionine (SAM) that is involved in a variety of methylation reactions in the body, one of which is
It binds to the ?2? (alpha2delta) subunit of the voltage-dependent calcium channel in the central nervous system. It help to decreases the release of
neurotransmitters including glutamate, norepinephrine, substance P and calcitonin gene-related peptide. However, unlike anxiolytic compounds (e.g.,
which exert their therapeutic effects through binding to GABA, . It neither binds directly to these receptors nor
augments GABA currents or affects GABA metabolism. The half life for pregabalin is 6.3 hours.
