LYRICA (pregabalin)  is indicated for the management of:
    * Fibromyalgia
    * Neuropathic pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy
    * Postherpetic neuralgia
The mechanism of action of pregabalin is unknown,
pregabalin reduces the calcium-dependent release of several neurotransmitters, possibly by modulation of calcium channel function is probably one of the ways it can help in reducing the neurogenic pain.

I have been taking it for nerve pain caused by slipped discs.
I have a high tolerance for pain and drugs. I am taking 600mg per day (the max allowed), and still have discomfort, but it defenitely takes the edge off. Only side effect I've noticed is slight lite-headness.
