Abstract:The article discusses the cause of fibromyalgia and validates the efficiency of Lyrica, a fibromyalgia drug du jour. It has seemingly topped by becoming the first Food and Drug Administration approved drug for the treatment of fibromyalgia. The two compounds share similar mechanisms of action, binding to the calcium channels, modulating calcium influx and resulting in analgesic, anxiolytic and anticonvulsant activity. Lyrica provides equivalent efficacy at lower doses.
