Lyrica may be used in the treatment of some seizure disorders and also for the control of nerve pain.

This action is thought to be the mechanism for its nerve-pain-relieving and anti-seizure properties.

Take care of you! I never start more than one new med at a time. If you have problems or an allergic reaction, you can’t tell which med is causing the problem. Lyrica works well for some people and not at all for others. You can’t confirm nerve pain based on how you react to lyrica.
