Hello all. I was at my Rhuemy the other day and she upped my Gabapentin and added Lyrica. I asked if it was ok to take both and she said yes. I then went and asked the pharmacist about it and he said he's only ever seen the combination once or twice before and that it's "probably " safe. Anyone else here take Gabapentin and Lyrica together?
I take both of these medications. My neurologist prescribed Lyrica for migraines, and my psychatrist prescribed gabapentin for anxiety. Both doctors are aware of all of the meds I take. If you are prone to getting sleepy be careful taking them together. These drugs are very similar but are a little different. If your doctor knew all the meds you are taking, I don't see why it wouldn't be safe, just be careful and see how it affects you before driving or things like that.
