Our expert says:
Lyrica is Pregabalin, a new drug being used for neuropathic pain, diabetic pains, neurofibralgia, and related pain problems. Cymgen is a trade name for the antidepressant Duloxetine. Frankly, it is ridiculous for any doctor to prescribe either of these complex drugs for someone already on a highly complex cocktail of other drugs, without knowing all the other drugs in detail, and just how they're being used, and deciding that the multiple combinations will be safe ; or simply suggesting the possible additions to the psychiatrist in charge of the case ( NO GP is as qualified to juggle so many specialist drugs ) and ask the principle specialist handling the case to consider these as additions or substitutes.
THe list you give of drugs is awesome. I'd hold off taking either of these new drugs until you can consult your primary specialist and discuss these suggestions, and form a joint decision about what to o here.
