Name for Pevesca Plus in USA
2 Replies RSS
"Pevesca Plus" is an Indian manufactured medicine(capsule). It contains Pegabalin 75mg, Mecobalamin 750 mg, Folic Acid 1.5 mg, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride 1.5 mg & Alpha Lipocid Acid 100 mg. Is there any equivalant available in USA? If so kindly let me know the name of medicine in USA. ## Unfortunately, no. The U.S. FDA does not approve medications that combine anything that's actually considered a drug, with other items that are considered supplements, due to the risk of some people not understanding what they are taking, which creates an overdose risk. However, they are available separately, you can be prescribed Pregabalin by physician and then take the supplements, too. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you very much in explaining me. We will follow your ...
