Can I take Lyrica with other medicines?

Combining Lyrica with other medications usually doesn't cause side effects, studies have shown. There are exceptions, though. Taking certain anti-anxiety drugs or narcotics can cause drowsiness and other symptoms; combining them with Lyrica could exaggerate those effects. (The same can happen if you mix Lyrica and alcohol.) Also, combining Lyrica with certain diabetes drugs and medications for high blood pressure could make you more likely to develop swelling, weight gain, and hives. Be sure to tell your doctor about all medications you're using before taking Lyrica. 
Yes, you can. But make sure your doctor and pharmacist know all of your medicines you take and any herbals or non-prescription medications that you take on a regular basis. This will reduce the likelihood of a potentially drug-drug interaction.
