Lyrica : The First FDA Approved Fibromyalgia Drug

About the Lyrica Fibromyalgia Medication / Fibromyalgia Treatment

Recently the FDA has approved the very first fibromyalgia drug for fibromyalgia (FM) treatment. The new FM drug is called Lyrica also known as pregabalin. The new fibromyalgia drug is marketed by Pfizer and is available for those individuals suffering from fibromyalgia over the age of 18. Until recently, symptoms of FM have only been treated through the use of pain relievers, sleeping pills and such, muscle relaxers, anti-depressants and more.

Lyrica is thought to affect the brain and the nerve cells within the brain by binding to certain cells which cause the higher amounts of sensitivity that most people would not express as painful sensitivities. Since FM sufferers experience a much more amplified level of pain for even the smallest of things the nerve cells will be inhibited from pushing such a heightened response.

In clinical trials, the usage of Lyrica for fibromyalgia treatment had substantially decreased the effects of FM by providing pain relief and better movement abilities. This is amazing being that for fibromyalgia sufferers, there really isn’t anything like this available as all the products available do not provide the levels of relief that Lyrica had. In fact, once patients were no longer taking Lyrica, the effects of fibromyalgia were increased once again. Some of the side effects experienced after taking Lyrica included drowsiness, blurring vision, feeling a little off-balance, dry mouth, slight swelling in hands and feet, difficulty concentrating, being strangely overjoyed and so on.

These side effects were experienced by individuals involved in the study and may affect different individuals in different ways. It is also important to note that some of the patients claimed to have experienced allergic reactions including rashes, swelling and so on. In addition to these concerns, it should also be a concern for those who could possibly be mixing the fibromyalgia drug with other drugs as it could potentially cause a negative effect being that the two drugs counteract one another or that Lyrica could possibly be abused by individuals who have abused pill usage, alcohol and more in the past. The fibromyalgia patient will, of course, be counseling their doctor or medical professional during the usage of this medication.

It is really exciting to see the new drug for fibromyalgia becoming available for those individuals who suffer from the debilitating condition. Although there is still plenty of research to be done on all different types of individuals suffering from fibromyalgia, including children under the age of 18, the results are looking positive and Lyrica is definitely something one who suffers from fibromyalgia would want to bring up with their medical professional in order to seek proper treatment for the symptoms of fibromyalgia and more.
