Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Adjuvant agents, given with local anesthetics or via venous, oral, or rectal routes for peripheral nerve blocking, have been in use for a long time. Literature studies about pregabalin usage in peripheral nerve blocking are limited in number. In this study, we aimed to reveal the blocking quality of pregabalin administered orally in various doses as an anxiolytic agent and its effective dose range.
