... hidden from them
Lyrica is an anti-convulsant (seizure) medicine and considered by many to be a pain relief medication. It is indicated for treatment of four specific conditions, and though it is not indicated or FDA approved for use to treat pain, it is prescribed (off label) by doctors to treat certain types of chronic pain. I would definitely lock them up as some people do try to get high from lyrica.
All medication needs to be hidden from children. Seriously. Kids will stick anything in their bodies trying to get high these days. I really think houses should all have a locked cabinet for cleaning products and medications, because of this. Lyrica is a controlled medication, but not a narcotic. Some people claim they get high on it, so of course the government had to control it (being sarcastic here). I can see where some kids would try it for that high.
