Pfizer Drug Approved For Treatment of Fibromyalgia – Symptoms Relieved Using Lyrica Capsules CV – Pain Management

Lyrica®

(Best Syndication) The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Thursday approved the drug Lyrica® (pregabalin) capsules CV for the management of fibromyalgia. Fiberomyalgia is a common chronic, widespread pain condition in the United States. The symptoms for Fibermyalgia include, but are not limited to, diffuse or specific muscle, joint, or bone pain, fatigue (see Videos Below).

It is believed that fibromyalgia is a result of neurological changes in how the patients perceive pain. Sufferers will have a heightened sensitivity to stimuli which are not normally painful. Lyrica binds with a specific protein within overexcited nerve cells and works to calm damaged nerves. The company admits that they are not sure exactly how the mechanism works.

“This is an important day for people with fibromyalgia and a real opportunity to help physicians effectively manage this disorder,” said Dr. Don Goldenberg, M.D., co-chair of the fibromyalgia guideline panel for the American Pain Society and professor of medicine, Tufts University. "Having a medication approved for use in fibromyalgia, along with research advances, will go a long way to improving our understanding and treatment of this common disorder."

One fibromyalgia patient believes the drug works. “I had to give up my career and I wasn’t able to participate in a lot of my children’s activities,” said Carolyn Bishop, a fibromyalgia patient and participant in one of the Lyrica clinical trials. “Since I’ve started taking Lyrica, I’ve had less pain and felt better.

“Pfizer undertook a robust clinical development program to evaluate Lyrica’s effectiveness in treating a number of conditions where there is a huge unmet medical need,” said Joe Feczko, Pfizer’s chief medical officer. “We are now seeing the dividends from our comprehensive research investment in the value that Lyrica will bring to patients suffering from fibromyalgia.”
