Question: 
Why is LYRICA classified as a controlled substance?
Answer: 

The US government regulates the manufacture, possession, and use of certain drugs and chemicals. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) maintains 5 schedules (or lists) of these controlled substances. The higher the schedule number, the lower the potential there is for abuse. For instance, LYRICA is a Schedule V medicine. This means it has a lower potential for abuse than a pain medicine that falls under Schedule II to IV.
