What is the difference between Neurontin and Lyrica for pain? Is it true that Neurontin increases GABA? Does Lyrica increase GABA? Is Neurontin just as good a Lyrica?
Both are related meds that are chemical similar to GABA and work through what are called sodium channels. Though related, one may work where the other does not. i usually begin with the neurontin (effective, less side effects and much lower cost) and Ultram, moving to Lyrica or Cymbalta if these don't work.
