Our expert says:
I have not heard of anyone having experience of using Lyrica ( Pregabalin is its chemical name ) combined with Espiride in treating Anxiety, Presumably your psychiatrist either knows such research or work or is otherwise satisfied that the combination will be safe and effective. You really need to discuss this with him. I haven't seen reports of this combination ; the adverse interactions reported so far have been with benzo tranquillizers, alcohol, and opioid painkillers.
Its not at all uncommon to take two meds which are both able to help in a particular condition - often they work in different ways, so their benefits could be additive rather than contradictory.
Pregabalin is primarily an anticonvulsant drug used in treating epilepsy and severe neuropathic pain, but it has also been found to be effective in generalized Anxiety Disorder, and approved for that use in Europe. IT seems to have a low potential for producing dependency and abuse, unlike some other drugs popular in treating anxiety.
