A description of the experience
Pregabalin (INN) is an anticonvulsant drug used for neuropathic pain and as an adjunct therapy for partial seizures with or without secondary generalization in adults.
It has also been used for generalized anxiety disorder and is (as of 2007) approved for this use in the European Union and Russia. It is used for treating some causes of chronic pain such as fibromyalgia but not others. It is classified as a Schedule V drug in the U.S. It was designed as a more potent successor to gabapentin.
Pregabalin is marketed by Pfizer under the trade name Lyrica. Pfizer described in an SEC filing that the drug could be used to treat epilepsy, postherpetic neuralgia, diabetic peripheral neuropathy and fibromyalgia. Lyrica was promoted for other uses which had not been approved by medical regulators up until 2009. For this practice, with 3 other drugs, Pfizer was fined a record amount of US$2.3 billion by the Department of Justice. Lyrica sales reached a record US$3.063 billion in 2010
It binds to the α2δ (alpha2delta) subunit of the voltage-dependent calcium channel in the central nervous system. It also decreases the release of neurotransmitters such as glutamate, noradrenaline, and substance P and increases neuronal GABA levels. It greatly potentiates benzodiazepines, barbiturates & other depressants. It is an adjunct therapy for partial seizures with or without secondary generalization in adults.
