    Pregabalin is frequently prescribed for neuropathic pain, generalized anxiety disorder and, to a lesser extent, epilepsy. On the basis of the analysis of a study conducted in 4 European countries, the European Medicines Agency and the French National Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products considered that this drug should be avoided in pregnant women. An alarmist interpretation of these study results retains an increased risk of major congenital malformations in case of in utero exposure to pregabalin during the first trimester of pregnancy. Our analysis of this study and the overall evaluation of the data available on this drug in pregnant women do not lead us to the same conclusion. Copyright © 2022 Elsevier Masson SAS.
