... ,anyone knows if this new drug will cause me more troubles than beneficts ?
Lyrica is a prescription medication used to treat the following conditions:
Epilepsy -- The drug is approved for use along with other seizure medications to treat a certain type of seizure called partial seizures
Fibromyalgia -- Lyrica helps relieve the pain associated with this condition
Nerve pain -- It is approved to treat the chronic nerve pain that occurs after an outbreak of shingles (known medically as postherpetic neuralgia) or due to diabetes (known medically as diabetic neuropathy).
It is not known exactly how Lyrica works to prevent partial seizures in people with epilepsy. Nor is it known how the drug works for nerve pain or fibromyalgia. Lyrica does bind to certain parts of calcium channels in the central nervous system, and this may be how it works for seizures, nerve pain, and anxiety. Although the medication is not approved for anxiety treatment, it has anti-anxiety properties and may be an effective anxiety medication.
Please do also seek more info from the doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med, take care.
