Generic for Lyrica

Post by frhinck »

Has anyone tried the FDA approved generic Rx of pregabalin in place of Lyrica? If so did it perform as well as the brand version? I am currently at 200 mg/day dosage, with PLM occurring about every other night which I can usually combat by reading for about an hour. Thanks, Fred

You may be the first on this forum. Generic Lyrica was approved only a few months ago and it usually takes manufacturers at least a couple of months to get their manufacturing facilities and FDA approvals complete before the generic is actually available to purchase.

I just went to look at my bottle. Sure enough it no longer says Lyrica on the bottle. I was wondering why my out of pocket co-pay went way down a few months ago. So the only difference i can tell is the price.
