Gabapentin & Pregabalin are now classed as Controlled drugs/ medicines;they are controlled under the Misuse of the Drugs legislation.
They will be prescribed in quantities of no more than 28 days due to stricter legal controls to prevent them: being misused, being obtained illegally and causing harm.

The North of Tyne Prescribing Committee has designated Dihydrocodeine a “Red Drug” because of the extent of the risk of misuse in the general population and GPs can no longer prescribe it.
