Lyrica and link to GBS?
AnonymousOctober 15, 2006 at 6:10 pm
Dave when they tested people with Lyrica for their trials before it got on the market somebody got GBS.
Also if you read the literature for Gabapentin under nervous system it list as infrequent “neuropathy” wouldn’t that be like Lyrica? But in the days Gabapentin was first put on the market GBS probably wasn’t well known so maybe that is why they called it Neuropathy which is a Peripheral Nerve Disease.
PS:I use Lyrica my choice

[QUOTE=DAVE]I wanted to see if anyone else knows anything about Lyrica and the possibility that it could cause GBS? I was told by a senior member that it could. Please let me know as this is the drug that I just started taking for relief of my paresthesias.
Dave – I emailed my Nero and Internal Medicine Dr. and she said she had not read or heard of that. Take it for what it is worth.

It’s self explanatory…did you read it? Look at bottom page 43 (last page) – Released by Pfizer laboratory (manufacturer of Lyrica)…updated March 2006.
I got the web site from the archive files, originally posted by Canuckgirl that I found on google.
