What is Generic Lyrica 75 mg?
Generic Lyrica 75 mg is the brand name by Pfizer for the drug Pregabalin. The FDA initially licensed Lyrica as an anticonvulsant or anti-epileptic medicine. It works by slowing down the brain impulses that trigger seizures. Pregabalin also alters brain chemicals that convey pain signals throughout the neurological system.
Lyrica treats fibromyalgia pain, nerve pain in diabetics (diabetic neuropathy), herpes zoster (post-herpetic neuralgia), and spinal cord injury.
This medicine alleviates pain caused by diabetic nerve damage, shingles (herpes zoster) infection, or spinal cord injury. This medicine is also used to relieve pain in fibromyalgia patients. It is also used with other drugs to treat specific types of seizures (focal seizures).
