The Ana Liffey Drug Project, through its Online & Digital Services team, have worked in partnership with the HSE to launch a pregabalin harm reduction campaign on the drugs.ie website.

The campaign includes a webpage, fact sheet, and poster.

Pregabalin is a prescription drug used to manage several long-term conditions, including epilepsy, neuropathic pain and generalised anxiety disorder. Similar to benzodiazepines, the anxiolytic (relaxing) effects of pregabalin occur rapidly after administration.

Internationally, pregabalin misuse has been reported among individuals attending addiction services and recreational drug users.
