I think they are both anti-siezure meds, often prescribed for nerve-pain. I was on Lyrica for about 8 days and had swelling of feet ankles and legs, so I discontinued it.
They are not the same drug, they are just used for similar symptoms. Hope this gives you a tiny bit of info, wish I could be of more help. Perhaps you should call your pharmacist. Best wishes to you. sweetlemon
