Lyrica Uses & Indications
Alcohol and drugs that cause sedation may increase the sedative effects of pregabalin. Pioglitazone (Actos) and rosiglitazone (Avandia) cause weight gain, fluid retention, and possibly heart failure. Therefore, combining pregabalin with these drugs may increase the occurrence of weight gain and fluid retention.

Lyrica Side Effects
The most common side effects of pregabalin are dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, edema (accumulation of fluid), blurred vision, weight gain, and difficulty concentrating. Other side effects include reduced blood platelet counts, and increased blood creatinine kinase levels. Increased creatinine kinase can be a sign of muscle injury, and in clinical trials three patients experienced rhabdomyolysis (severe muscle injury). Therefore, patients should report unexplained muscle pain, tenderness or weakness to their doctors, especially if associated with fever and malaise (reduced well-being). Pregabalin has rarely been associated with angioedema (swelling of the face, tongue, lips, and gums, throat and larynx).
Antiepileptic medications have been associated with increased risk of suicidal thinking and behavior. Anyone considering the use of antiepileptic drugs must balance this risk of suicide with the clinical need. Patients who are started on therapy should be closely observed for clinical worsening, suicidal thoughts, or unusual changes in behavior.
Suffering from depression and anxiety can take its toll on your body. Only fellow sufferers can truly understand the consequences. It’s sometimes hard to diagnose if the anxiety stems from depression or depression stems from anxiety. Your depression may be caused by environmental issues like working long hours in a stressful job you hate or it can be part of a more recognized mental health illness.
Doctor’s often prescribe SSRI medications to ease depression but it can take time to find out what medication works best for you. Some people react badly to antidepressants and some find them ineffective so it's wise to consider you family history and possible drug interactions with your doctor before starting new treatment.
