What is Lyrica CR

Lyrica CR is an anti-epileptic drug, also called an anticonvulsant. It works by slowing down impulses in the brain that cause seizures. Lyrica CR also affects chemicals in the brain that send pain signals across the nervous system.
Lyrica CR is used to control seizures and to treat fibromyalgia. It is also used to treat pain caused by nerve damage in people with diabetes, herpes zoster (post-herpetic neuralgia), or spinal cord injury.
Lyrica CR may also be used for purposes not listed in Lyrica CR guide.

Lyrica CR dosing

Usual Adult Dose for Diabetic Neuropathy:

Initial dose: 50 mg 3 times a day
The maximum recommended dose is 100 mg 3 times a day in patients with a creatinine clearance of at least 60 mL/min.
The dose may be increased to 100 mg 3 times a day within 1 week based on efficacy and tolerability.

Usual Adult Dose for Postherpetic Neuralgia:

Initial dose: 75 mg 2 times a day or 50 mg 3 times a day in patients with a creatinine clearance of at least 60 mL/min
The dose may be increased to 100 mg 3 times a day within 1 week based on efficacy and tolerability.
Maximum dose: Patients who do not experience sufficient pain relief following 2 to 4 weeks of treatment with 300 mg/day and who are able to tolerate Lyrica CR, may be treated with up to 300 mg 2 times a day or 200 mg 3 times a day. Due to the dose-dependent adverse effects and the higher rate of treatment discontinuation due to adverse events, dosing above 300 mg/day should be reserved only for those patients who have ongoing pain and are tolerating 300 mg daily.

Usual Adult Dose for Epilepsy:

Initial dose: 75 mg 2 times a day or 50 mg 3 times a day
Doses of 150 mg to 600 mg/day have been shown to be effective as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of partial onset seizures. The total daily dose should be divided and given either 2 or 3 times a day.
Maximum dose: Based on individual patient response and tolerability, the dose may be increased to a maximum of 600 mg/day.
The efficacy of add-on Lyrica CR in patients taking gabapentin has not been evaluated in controlled trials. Therefore, dosing recommendations for the use of Lyrica CR with gabapentin cannot be offered.

Usual Adult Dose for Fibromyalgia:

Initial dose: 75 mg two times a day
The dose may be increased to 150 mg two times a day (300 mg/day) within one week based on efficacy and tolerability.
Patients who do not experience sufficient benefit with 300 mg/day may be further increased to 225 mg two times a day (450 mg/day).
Recommended dose: 300 to 450 mg/day
Although Lyrica CR was also studied at 600 mg/day, there is no evidence that this dose confers additional benefit and this dose was less well tolerated. In view of the dose-dependent adverse reactions, treatment with doses above 450 mg/day is not recommended.

Usual Adult Dose for Neuropathic Pain:

For neuropathic pain associated with spinal cord injury:
Initial dose: 75 mg 2 times a day
The dose may be increased to 150 mg 2 times a day within 1 week based on efficacy and tolerability.
Doses of 150 mg to 600 mg/day have been shown to be effective as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of neuropathic pain associated with spinal cord injury. The total daily dose should be divided.
Maximum dose: Patients who do not experience sufficient pain relief following 2 to 3 weeks of treatment with 150 mg 2 times a day and who are able to tolerate Lyrica CR, may be treated with up to 300 mg 2 times a day. Because Lyrica CR is eliminated primarily by renal excretion, the dose should be adjusted in patients with reduced renal function.
