Lyrica tab contains the ingredient Pregabalin.
Pregabalin is an anticonvulsant drug used for neuropathic pain and as an adjunct therapy for partial seizures with or without secondary generalization in adults.
Pregabalin is effective at treating chronic pain in disorders such as fibromyalgia nd spinal cord injury.
If it is very painful then u can take Tab lyrica 150 mg twice daily after food for 1 month.
