The pills will also be recommended as adjuvant therapy for young patients with partial-onset seizures. Contrastingly, Pfizer's Lyrica is licensed for use in kids as young as 1 month old, whilst Cipla's generics are only permitted for use in people 17 years of age and older.

When treating patients with epilepsy who are 1 month of age or older, Generic Lyrica is used with other medications to help control partial-onset seizures (convulsions). As long as you take the medication, it will only serve to reduce seizures; it will not treat epilepsy.

According to Janet Woodcock, MD, director of the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, "[the] approval of the first generics for pregabalin, a widely prescribed drug, is another example of the FDA's long-standing commitment to advance patient access to less expensive, high-quality generic medicines." "Generic medications must adhere to strict scientific and quality criteria, per the FDA. The FDA's first aim is to effectively bring safe and efficient generic medications to market so that patients have additional alternatives for treating their diseases."

Patients who have a known hypersensitivity to pregabalin or any of its components should not take pregabalin.

Pregabalin's prescribing material includes cautions about angioedema, hypersensitivity responses, a higher risk of suicidal thoughts or acts, potential peripheral edema, probable drowsiness, and somnolence, as well as a reduced ability to drive or operate machinery. Pregabalin withdrawal symptoms, including increased seizure frequency, might occur quickly.
