Pfizer’s epilepsy drug Lyrica was recently rejected by the FDA as a treatment option for generalized anxiety disorder.

The FDA claims that there is not enough data to support the unlabeled use of Lyrica.

Pfizer isn’t happy and claims that this drug could help anxiety sufferers.

Editor’s Note:

Now, is it just me or does something seem wrong here?  It seems like anxiety disorder always gets the short end of the stick when it comes to drugs.

You always hear about drugs meant for depression or seizures being handed down to the anxious.  Granted, there have been drugs designed for anxiety disorder, but this second hand stuff seems to happen a lot to us.

This isn’t always bad either because if it works, it works I guess.  But it’s a damn shame that anxiety suffers don’t have marathons, 5k’s, and other fund raisers to raise money to put this baby to bed like other health conditions do.  Is it because anxiety doesn’t make people dead?  Who knows?

I would hope that it’s the peoples’ welfare really at the heart of their crossover efforts, but I doubt it.

What are your thoughts?
