On this podcast episode, I discuss (Lyrica) pregabalin pharmacology, adverse effects, drug interactions, and much more.
I compare pregabalin and gabapentin in this episode and one important difference is the percent absorption of gabapentin compared to pregabalin.
Pregabalin can exacerbate the risk of respiratory depression and overdose in patients who are taking opioids.
Pregabalin is most frequently used in practice for neuropathic pain syndromes.
