Are you trying to convince me (a pharmacist) that Lyrica is not used for anxiety and depression?
Anyway, from Wikipedia:
"The World Federation of Biological Psychiatry recommends pregabalin (LYRICA)as one of several first line agents for the treatment of generalized
anxiety disorder, but recommends other agents such as SSRIs as first line treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder and post-traumatic stress
disorder. It appears to have anxiolytic effects similar to benzodiazepines with less risk of dependence."
Btw, from my knowledge, doctors usually prescribe the pill which makes them the best profit.
They ain't interested in your Heath.
Lyrica is made by Pfizer, the biggest PHARMA company on Earth at the moment, so they can pay A LOT.
Doctors get their Money. you pay for the drug, we get your Money, we give something for the distributor and the rest goes to pfizer as a Pure
everyone in this business is payed-off, except for the custumer, who only got more screwed than before and even payed for it
I've seen doctors laughing their arses off because of this at the meetings
