Lyricia contains pregabilin which is sometimes considered a powerful pain killer
I am not sure what is in Lyrica but it is not a controlled substance. I have been prescribed Lyrica for the past 3 to 4 years and I have yet to have it labeled on my bottle as a controlled substance. I would ask your pharmacy why that was put on there. Maybe by accident someone might have thought that they were.
Today Friday February 24th, 2017 I went to the Walgreens I had to give them my ID and they wrote the lyrica prescription ID number on their narcotic list paperwork. I live in Austin Texas. Other states may be different but I highly doubt it. Have you not seen the Lyrica ads on television stating you should not use this drug if you drink or have abused drugs in the past...
Lyrica is indeed a controlled substance. I've heard it described as one of the more 'supercharged' meds of its kind ..I started taking it 6 weeks ago and i experience much better pain control . I take a low dose of oxycodone as needed. I don't feel desperate anymore to seek narcotics nor do I believe that they are the only kind of med for pain control . I used to prefer taking narcotics , but now I wouldn't without Lyrica.
It is a control substance. I have to pick it up from my Rheumatologist Office, and sign for it.
