Your monthly Lyrica CR cost savings if eligible

The Lyrica CR patient assistance program can provide your medication for free. We simply charge $49 per month for each medication to cover the cost of our services. With NiceRx, you will only pay $49 to obtain your Lyrica CR, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Lyrica CR patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Lyrica CR assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider are:

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Lyrica CR patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Lyrica CR patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Lyrica CR.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Lyrica CR assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Lyrica CR patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Lyrica CR.

Is NiceRx a Lyrica CR coupon provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Lyrica CR patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Lyrica CR samples. When obtaining your medication through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month per medication. This will likely save you more money than if you were to use Lyrica CR coupons, discount cards, or Lyrica CR copay cards.

Can NiceRx help me get Lyrica CR cheaper if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Lyrica CR medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. Whether you have insurance or not, apply online using our enrollment application to find out more.

How much does Lyrica CR cost with insurance?

What is Lyrica CR?

Lyrica CR is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Pfizer Inc. Lyrica CR is indicated for the management of:

  • Neuropathic pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN)
  • Postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) caused by shingles
  • Spinal cord injury

Lyrica CR is not recommended for the management of fibromyalgia or as adjunctive therapy for adult patients with partial-onset seizures.

What doses of Lyrica CR are available?

Lyrica CR is available in extended-release tablet form, in the following doses: 82.5 mg, 165 mg, and 330 mg.

Take this medication by mouth, once daily, after an evening meal. Swallow the tablets whole. Do not split, crush, or chew. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects.

Read the full prescribing information and medication guide, and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Lyrica CR active ingredients

Lyrica CR contains pregabalin as the active ingredient. Pregabalin is chemically and structurally similar to gabapentin, with antiepileptic, analgesic, and anxiolytic properties.
