I have been taking lyrica for some time now...it has been in capsule form. I went to a new pharmacy and now it is a little white pill......is it still lyrica. It is white with the number 10 on the back the front has a line in the middle ( like a line you would cut it in half with or something ) someone please tell me if it is lyrica before I have to start taking it. Thank you

I am not finding any Lyrica/Pregabalin listed in tablet form. All the listings I am finding for it are capsules. Have you contacted the pharmacy to double check? That's what I would do, if it were me, to make sure that I didn't receive the wrong medication.

I think you should take these tabs back to the pharmacy fir positive ID before taking them. Pharmacists can make mistakes. A friend of mine was given a prescription for a pain medication and the inexperienced assistant could not decipher her doctor's handwriting and filled it with the wrong drug. After 3 days my friend became stuporous because she was given a sleep medication with the direction to take 1 or 2 every four hours as needed for pain. Needless to say, she began taking 2 every 4 hours because she did not feel any pain relief. She thought the drowsiness was simply a side effect that is common among pain pills. Her husband was unable to rouse her and called an ambulance just in time. She stopped breathing on the way to the hospital. Better safe than sorry. Let the pharmacists actually see the tablets you are questioning. I was a surgical coordinator in a podiatric group and dealt with the drug reps that seemed to swarm our office like bees. I've seen many doses of Lyrica, (which was just coming out at that time) and I don't recall seeing them in tablet form at all. I could be wrong but I always choose to err on the side of caution.

I believe as far as the brand name Lyrica is concerned, yes, it only comes in capsules. However, it appears that the generic (Pregabalin) is available in an extended release tablet as of early 2021. (NDC 47781-379 among others)
