A PRESCRIPTION painkiller which is now set to be restricted as a Class C drug was linked to more than 150 drug deaths in Scotland last year.

Gabapentin was mentioned on the death certificates of 154 overdose cases, while its sister drug pregabalin – which is used to treat seizures and anxiety, and is also being reclassified – was cited in 71 autopsies. (The Herald, 03.10.2017)

Prescription drug is handed out too readily and used recreationally, say doctors, with 111 deaths linked to it last year

A prescription drug described as the “new valium” is to be classified as a class C controlled substance after it was linked to a growing number of UK deaths.

Pregabalin – a substance used to treat nerve pain, epilepsy and anxiety – is increasingly being handed out too readily and being used recreationally, according to doctors and pharmacists. They say that when it is mixed with other substances it can lead to overdose. Deaths connected to pregabalin have risen from four in 2012 to 111 last year, according to the Office for National Statistics. (The Guardian, 21.09.2017)
