I found the following information on the National Cancer Institute's website cancer.gov :
Lyrica - A drug used to treat nerve pain caused by diabetes or herpes zoster infection and certain types of seizures. It is being studied in the prevention and treatment of nerve pain in the hands and feet of cancer patients given chemotherapy.
On the site ehealthme.com :
Cancer - pancreas is found among people who take Lyrica, especially for people who are female, 60+ old , have been taking the drug for < 1 month, also take medication Celebrex, and have Osteoporosis . We study 119,134 people who have side effects while taking Lyrica from FDA and social media. Among them, 81 have Cancer - pancreas. Find out below who they are, when they have Cancer - pancreas and more. This about 1% of patients.
