In order to study the therapeutic effect of pregabalin on postherpetic neuralgia, patients with postherpetic neuralgia were studied. Pregabalin and other medicines for patients with neuralgia were analyzed in terms of physical pain, nausea and vomiting, quality of life, adverse reactions, sleep quality and satisfaction. The results showed that compared with other drugs in the treatment and drug response, pregabalin has a significant effect.
