There is honestly no such thing like a max dosage for many drugs. At least you can't give a certain number safely that would account for all people and all circumstances. There will always be people who tolerate and require much higher doses than the average.
Pregabalin is a drug similar to Gabapentin but more potent. The max approved daily dose is 600 mg but it is not like you will just die when you take 601 mg or 660 mg. In fact there are some people who can take several thousand mgs of Pregabalin and still experience tolerance.
Basically what you are asking is the wrong question. In practical terms, a doctor would want to know if you have side effect at your current dose and when there is nothing relevant, it often makes sense to increase the dose of a drug that has worked before but stop working.
What you asking is basically the max dose before you experience relevant / problematic side effects. But there is no real way to predict it. Just that those max dose recommendations are mostly based on studies in the years before the drug was on the market. And they tend to choose doses where not too many people develop serious side effects, so that they will get approval for marketing.
