The article titled “Prevalence of Pregabalin (Lyrica) Abuse among Healthcare Professionals in Asser Province Saudi Arabia” is published in archives of mental health and psychiatry in volume 6 issue 1 describes the first limitation concerns about the self-rated questionnaire. Self-reported answers may be exaggerated; respondents may be too embarrassed to reveal private details; various biases may affect the results. Therefore, using clinician-rated scale or structural clinical interview would be better. Further, on a self ‐ report questionnaire, there is always the potential for recall bias, where participants may not remember details of their substance use accurately. Third, the cross-sectional study design precluded the finding of any causal association. Fourth, this sample was drawn from a single province in Saudi Arabia, limiting the generalizability to the greater population of HPs. Despite this, we note that this is the first study examined the prevalence of pregabalin among HCPs nationally and internationally. The current research revealed that about one every nine medical staff use pregabalin and nearly half of them use it without medical prescription. Utilization rate was higher among young physicians and paramedical staff in special concern. Stress relief and euphoria sensation were the major factors behind abuse as many other drugs. It risk factors and consequences. Also, It has been addressed what is already known about substance use disorders among HCPs. More supervision and regulations for pregabalin prescription and acquisition are required to avoid the abuse among the medical staff that can get it easily due to their job nature.
