Lyrica, also known as Pregabalin, is the first drug approved by the FDA specifically to treat chronic pain in fibromyalgia. Additionally, it is used a partial therapy to treat partial seizures in adults under certain conditions. In Europe Lyrica has been approved for use in treating General Anxiety Disorder.

There is, however, some controversy as to whether or not fibromyalgia is actually a distinct disorder. There is still debate over whether or not the condition is distinct from others and about the specific way in which Lyrica treats the pain.

Lyrica is distributed by Pfizer. In 2007, Pfizer was sued for promoting off-label uses of Lyrica. Pfizer was required to pay $2.3 billion in a settlement.

Lyrica is a mildly addictive drug and causes withdrawal symptoms after disconinuation. Additionally, the drug is abused by some people in a similar was as other anti-anxiety drugs are abused.
