Overview Information on Lyrica

Pharmacist Tip
If you miss a dose of Lyrica, take it as soon as you remember, unless it is close to the time of your next dose. If this is the case, skip the missed dose and resume your regular schedule.     
Lyrica® is the brand name of a medicine called pregabalin, which doctors prescribe to treat a number of conditions. Your doctor may have given you Lyrica to treat pain from damaged nerves that can happen if you have diabetes, result from a spinal cord injury, or follow the healing of shingles. Lyrica is also given to treat fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a condition where you can have widespread pain all over your body.

Lyrica is also used with other medicines to treat certain types of seizures.

Although it is not completely understood how Lyrica works, it is believed that Lyrica firmly attaches to nerve cells in your body and changes the way that certain chemicals transmit pain signals to your brain. It is also thought that these chemical changes are the way Lyrica produces its antiseizure effects.
