What is Lyrica?
Lyrica Pregablina 150 mg medication is used to treat pain caused by nerve damage due to diabetes, shingles (herpes zoster) infection, or spinal cord injury. This medication is also used to treat pain in people with fibromyalgia.
It is also used with other medications to treat certain types of seizures (focal seizures).
How Does Lyrica Work?
Fibromyalgia pain is believed to be brought on by nerve-related changes, which cause nerve cells to fire off too many signals. This renders a person overly sensitive to stimuli that are normally not painful.
Pregabalin Milpharm is indicated for the treatment of peripheral and central neuropathic pain in adults.
Pregabalin Milpharm is indicated as adjunctive therapy in adults with partial seizures with or without secondary generalisation.
Generalised Anxiety Disorder
Pregabalin Milpharm is indicated for the treatment of Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) in adults.
How Do You Take Lyrica?
When used for fibromyalgia, Lyrica is a capsule that is usually taken in divided doses twice a day. Doses range from 150 milligrams to 450 milligrams a day. Your doctor will determine the best dose for you. If you miss taking one capsule, you should take it as soon as possible — unless it is close to the time when you are supposed to take the next one. Never take two or more at the same time.
