Detailed Description:

General practitioners and specialists participate in the study. When a subject, independently of the study and before consideration for observation in the study has been prescribed pregabalin for treatment of peripheral NeP, the subject can (before first dose of pregabalin is taken) be included in the observational program.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population

When a subject, independently of the study and before consideration for observation in the study has been prescribed pregabalin for treatment of peripheral NeP, the subject can (before first dose of pregabalin is taken) be included in the observational program.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects aged 18 years or over.
  • Subjects diagnosed with peripheral neuropathic pain.
  • Subjects that independently of the study and before consideration for observation in the study have been prescribed pregabalin for treatment of peripheral neuropathic pain either.

    1. for the first time ('first prescription patients') or
    2. that have not used pregabalin within the previous 6 months but are prescribed pregabalin again ('re-treatment patients')
  • Subjects that haven't taken the first dose of the prescribed pregabalin yet.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects not consenting to participate.
  • Subjects that at study inclusion (baseline) are on treatment with pregabalin for generalized anxiety or epilepsy.
