Who should not take pregabalin?

If you know that you are allergic or hypersensitive to pregabalin—or to any ingredients used to make the pregabalin preparation—you should not take pregabalin. If you have diabetes, congestive heart failure or high blood pressure, you can still take this medication but will need to be carefully monitored by your doctor. These conditions may make you more likely to have the side effects of weight gain and swelling (edema) in the legs or arms.
