Yes it is. A lot of us here on these support groups take it. Has your doctor prescribed this to you recently and that's why you're asking?

I take it for my fibro and if its helping my back pain I sure don't think it touches it.

I tried Gabapentin instead of the high priced Lyrica for my pain(back) and fibro and I didn't tolerate it. My dosage was a lot higher(300mg) than the Lyrica 100mg @ bedtime. . I'm not sure what the starting dosage should be or how often.
