Lasquran,Do you take other medications all the years i have worked in pharmacy I have never seen this used for GAD below is the correct use however sometimes being this is a fairly new drug the find it helps with other stuff which is none as offlabel i lookes in several of my books and did not see anything about Gad we dispenced very little of this due to the side effects for many people but for severe nerve pain and such.LYRICA is a prescription medicine approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is used in adults to manage fibromyalgia (chronic pain all over your body). It is also used to treat diabetic nerve pain or pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (pain in the feet and hands from damaged nerves caused by diabetes), spinal cord injury nerve pain and pain after shingles.
