Will pregabalin make me drowsy?

One of the most common side effects of pregabalin is feeling very drowsy. This does not mean that you will definitely feel this side effect, but because it is such a common effect, you should be careful when first starting this medication. Do not drive, operate heavy machinery or do other complicated or dangerous tasks until you know how you react to pregabalin. You may find that the drowsiness is a side effect that you can tolerate, or it may be so severe that you feel that you need to stop taking it. Before you stop, talk to a doctor first to figure out a plan—stopping your pregabalin too quickly can lead to serious problems.
