Nurika (75mg capsule) is a prescription medication used to treat nerve pain (neuropathic pain) in adults. It contains the active ingredient pregabalin, which is a type of anticonvulsant medication. Nurika works by reducing the activity of certain chemicals in the brain and nervous system that are involved in pain signaling.
Dosage and usage
The recommended starting dosage for Nurika is 75mg once daily. Your doctor may increase or decrease the dosage depending on your individual needs and response to the medication. Nurika can be taken with or without food.
Nurika should be taken at the same time each day to maintain a consistent level of medication in your body. It is important to continue taking Nurika even if you start to feel better. Do not stop taking Nurika without talking to your doctor first, as this could suddenly worsen your pain symptoms.
