HOW DOES LYRICA WORK?
LYRICA is believed to calm overactive nerves
Fibromyalgia is thought to be the result of overactive nerves. These nerves may be responsible for the chronic widespread pain and tenderness of fibromyalgia. LYRICA is believed to calm overactive nerves. It is unknown exactly how LYRICA works in the body. Animal studies suggest that LYRICA reduces "extra" electrical signals sent out by overactive nerves. The implication of these studies for humans is not known.
LYRICA can be taken with other medications
LYRICA has a low potential for drug interaction, but does interact with some medicines. Tell your doctor about all the medicines, vitamins, or herbal supplements you take, especially medicines that make you sleepy or any medicines mentioned below:
- Any angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, used to treat many conditions such as high blood pressure: Taking this with LYRICA may increase the chance for swelling and hives
- Avandia (rosiglitazone), Avandamet (contains rosiglitazone and metformin), or Actos (pioglitazone) used for diabetes: Taking these with LYRICA may increase the chance of weight gain or swelling of your hands or feet
- Any narcotic pain medicine (such as oxycodone), tranquilizers, or medicines for anxiety (such as lorazepam): Taking these with LYRICA may increase the chance for dizziness and sleepiness
