Lyrica & Neurontin Association
Lyrica (Generic: Pregabalin) is prescribed to patients for the management of neuropathic pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Lyrica, manufactured by Pfizer, received FDA approval on December 30, 2004. Seizure patients also use Lyrica. Lyrica was manufactured as a substitute medication for Neurontin. Lyrica has only been tested and prescribed to adults 18 or older. Lyrica has not been studied in children under the age of 18. Lyrica, just like Neurontin, may cause increased risk of suicide and suicidal behavior
Other Lyrica Side Effects
General side effects associated with Lyrica can include: dizziness, blurred vision, sleepiness, weight gain, swelling (edema), muscle problems, and altered perception. Weight gain is of particular concern to those with diabetes, as this can worsen their condition. Additional animal studies also found Lyrica to cause side effects in males. Lyrica lowered the fertility of some male animal subjects throughout testing. Males who received Lyrica who did reproduce had an increased risk of birth defects in their offspring.
