Question: 
Can LYRICA be taken with other medicines for pain after shingles?
Answer: 

LYRICA has a low potential for drug interaction, but does interact with some medicines. That means LYRICA can be a part of your overall treatment regimen.

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
