I think I have diabetic neuropathy. I think that Lyrica (pregabalin) is used for this. I also read about Neurontin. Which medication is for what exactly?

Neurontin (gabapentin) first. Both are used for neuropathy as well as other things. Lyrica (pregabalin) has a withdrawal syndrome associated with trying to stop it. Neurontin would be a better first choice in my view and works well for a lot of people. Both have pros and cons, discuss it with your family doc and any specialist you are seeing. Also see what other options you might have. Lose weight too, watch diet, to slow progression. Read more...
