1. What Lyrica does

Lyrica is a prescription medicine used in adults, 18 years and older, to treat:

  • pain from damaged nerves (neuropathic pain) that happens with diabetes
  •  pain from damaged nerves (neuropathic pain) that follows healing of shingles (a painful rash that comes after a herpes zoster infection)
  • partial seizures when taken together with other seizure medicines
  • fibromyalgia

Lyrica has not been studied in children under 18 years of age.

Pain from Damaged Nerves (neuropathic pain)

Diabetes and shingles can damage your nerves. Pain from damaged nerves may feel sharp, burning, tingling, shooting, or numb. If you have diabetes, the pain can be in your arms, hands, fingers, legs, feet, or toes. If you have shingles, the pain is in the area of your rash. You may experience this kind of pain even with a very light touch. Lyrica can help relieve the pain.

Partial Seizures

Partial seizures start in one part of the brain. A seizure can make you fearful, confused, or just feel \"funny\". You may smell strange smells. A seizure may cause your arm or leg to jerk or shake. It can spread to other parts of your brain, make you pass out, and cause your whole body to start jerking. Lyrica can lower the number of seizures for people who are already taking seizure medicine.

Fibromyalgia is a condition which includes widespread muscle pain and difficulty performing daily activities. Lyrica can help relieve the pain and improve function. Some people taking Lyrica had less pain by the end of the first week of Lyrica therapy. Lyrica may not work for everyone.
