Product Description

What is Pregabalin (Lyrica)?

Pregabalin, marketed under the brand name Lyrica, is a drug used to treat pain caused by nerve damage. It can be used in conjunction with other neuropathic pain medication. Neuropathic pain is what is experiences when damage is done to the nerves.

It can be caused by a variety of different problems such as fibromyalgia, shingles and diabetes. Pregabalin is often also used to treat disorders such as anxiety and epilepsy.

The drug works by releasing various neurotransmitters from the nerve cells in the spinal cord and brain. These are the chemicals that are found naturally in the body which transmit messages from nerve cell to nerve cell.

The release of these transmitters, such as glutmate, noradrenaline and substance P. is decreased by using Pregabalin, stopping them from sending pain signals to the brain. Therefore, pain for people using Pregabalin for peripheral neuropathic pain and nerve pain can be lessened and treated.

Neurotransmitters such as glutamate, substance P and noradrenaline cause pain signals to be transmitted to the brain and nervous system. Through using Pregabalin, the release of thee transmitters is reduced and thus so is the pain felt.

It can be used to treat pain due to damage of disturbance of the nerves. Any pain caused by nerves in the hands, legs or feet, and even neuropathic pain from a spinal cord injury can be solved with Pregabalin.
