    Lyrica belongs to the family of drugs called anticonvulsants.  The term anticonvulsant can be confusing – many people wonder why they're given a prescription for an anticonvulsant if they don't have seizures.  Actually, many anticonvulsants can also be very effective for treating pain – particularly nerve pain – because they help block the transmission of pain signals to the brain.  Lyrica has been FDA approved for the treatment of neuropathic (nerve) pain and fibromyalgia.
