Extra strength tylenol is exactly the same as regular, just a larger dose, (500 mg vs. 325) so selling the extra strength is just a marketing gimmick, you could just as easily take 3 regular vs 2 extra strength, IF you need that much, the more you take the greater chance of liver damage. As for Lyrica, it is a slightly different formulation from Neurontin, possibly greater effectiveness due to better brain penetration according to my doctor but definitely more risk of side effects, weight gain and the one that has scared me off from trying it so far, eye problems.
