Lyrica Information
1 Replies
January - February 10

This is information on Lyrica which I copied from Wikipedia's site on pregabalin:

Lyrica is one of four drugs which a subsidiary of Pfizer in 2009 pleaded guilty to misbranding "with the intent to defraud or mislead". Pfizer agreed to pay $2.3 billion (£1.4 billion) in settlement, and entered a corporate integrity agreement. Pfizer illegally promoted the drugs and caused false claims to be submitted to government healthcare programs for uses that were not medically accepted.

 

LadyNae - February 12

I asked my dr. about fibro meds. today, mainly the ones that are name brand like Lyrica and such. He said that they are just a souped up version of an antidepressant. He also said that some people do benefit from it because for whatever reason they can't take Nuerotin (sp) He said that the one that just came out not to long ago was originally meant as an antidepressant but it didn't really treat depression so they passed it for fibro treatment. I found it all kind of interesting.
