Changes to prescribing rules around pregabalin and gabapentin following reclassification as controlled medicines from 1 April

13 Mar 2019

Epilepsy medicines pregabalin and gabapentin will be reclassified as controlled medicines under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 from 1 April 2019, NHS England has said.

This means there will be stricter legal controls over these medicines to prevent them from being misused, causing harm or being sourced illegally.
