Pregabalin (Lyrica)

Lyrica, or pregabalin, is an anticonvulsant drug used to treat pain caused by nerve damage (neuropathy). Lyrica may also manage other types of pain and pain-related conditions, including fibromyalgia, and may also help manage seizures when used with other medications. Lyrica comes in several dosages, from Lyrica 25 up to Lyrica 150 mg and Lyrica 300 mg. Though Lyrica can be habit-forming when taken incorrectly, the risk is low for Lyrica 150 mg. When nerves in the body are damaged (often from conditions like diabetes or shingles), they release pain signals. Lyrica helps to reduce those pain signals and manage pain.
