Lyrica 150 is a prescription medication produced by Pfizer that contains the active ingredient Pregabalin. It is a capsule-shaped pill that comes in a blister pack of 56 tablets.
Lyrica 150 is used to treat a variety of conditions, including nerve pain associated with diabetic neuropathy, fibromyalgia, and spinal cord injury. It is also used to treat partial onset seizures in adult patients with epilepsy.
HOW TO USE:
Lyrica 150 should be taken orally, with or without food, as directed by the doctor. Patients should never exceed the recommended dosage. The dosage and duration of treatment will be determined by the doctor based on the patient’s medical history and response to treatment.
Lyrica 150 should be stored at room temperature, between 20°C to 25°C (68°F to 77°F). Keep it away from direct sunlight, heat, and moisture. Ensure that the medication is kept out of reach of children and pets.
Mechanism of action:
Lyrica 150 contains the active ingredient Pregabalin, which works by binding to a specific type of calcium channel in the nervous system. This reduces the release of certain neurotransmitters, including glutamate and substance P, which are involved in pain signaling. By reducing the release of these neurotransmitters, Lyrica 150 can reduce pain and seizures.
