Question: 
Can I take LYRICA with other medicines or alcohol?
Answer: 

LYRICA has a low potential for drug interaction, but does interact with some medicines. Tell your doctor about all the medicines, vitamins, or herbal supplements you take, especially medicines that make you sleepy or any medicines mentioned below:

  • Any angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, used to treat many conditions such as high blood pressure: Taking this with LYRICA may increase the chance for swelling and hives
  • Avandia (rosiglitazone), Avandamet (contains rosiglitazone and metformin), or Actos (pioglitazone) used for diabetes: Taking these with LYRICA may increase the chance of weight gain or swelling of your hands or feet
  • Any narcotic pain medicine (such as oxycodone), tranquilizers, or medicines for anxiety (such as lorazepam): Taking these with LYRICA may increase the chance for dizziness and sleepiness

Know the medicines you take. Keep a list of them with you to show your healthcare provider and pharmacist each time you get a new medicine. Do not start a new medicine without talking with your doctor.

Do not drink alcohol while taking LYRICA. LYRICA and alcohol can affect each other and increase side effects such as sleepiness and dizziness.
