new drug Lyrica?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone tried a drug called Lyrica? I was given that today for back pain but it states it's more for Diabetes. Has anyone ever taken it? or is it a steroid? It does not really state on the webpage. Thank you for any info.

I could be mistaken but I thought I saw a TV ad stating that Lyrica is specifically for patients with firbromyalgia.

It is a pain reliever used for fibromyalgia, or diabetes nerve pain, or other different types of pain.
