Lyrica Capsules

Lyrica® (pregabalin) is a prescription medicine used to treat several conditions, such as fibromyalgia, partial seizures caused by epilepsy, or nerve pain caused by shingles, spinal cord injury, or diabetes.
 
The drug comes in capsule form. It is taken by mouth, and is typically taken two or three times a day. Lyrica capsules are available in several strengths, including:
 
  • Lyrica 25 mg
  • Lyrica 50 mg
  • Lyrica 75 mg
  • Lyrica 100 mg
  • Lyrica 150 mg
  • Lyrica 200 mg
  • Lyrica 225 mg
  • Lyrica 300 mg.

 

A liquid form of Lyrica is also available in a strength of 20 mg per mL. 

 

It is not exactly clear how Lyrica works, but the medication is thought to affect calcium channels in the brain.
 
Although most people have no problems with Lyrica capsules, they are not suitable for everyone. Before starting treatment, talk to your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you may have or any other medications you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements). Some of the common side effects include drowsiness, weight gain, and coordination problems.
