Pregabalin: Supply issue

Supply issue Active

Due to shipping delays, there is a brief out of stock of Pfizer Pregabalin.

Upjohn, the supplier of Pregabalin Pfizer, has sourced some Lyrica stock to cover the out of stock period. Lyrica was initially supplied under section 29 as an unapproved product. Medsafe has now approved Lyrica.

Information for people who take pregabalin

Lyrica is manufactured in the same facility and has the exact same chemical makeup as Pregabalin Pfizer. Both brands also have identical markings on the capsules, but are just packed into different looking cartons.

The only difference you should notice is the packaging.
