    First I would get off the Lyrica,and that is not easy to do. It messed up my mind so badly, that now that I'm off it, people are saying "" welcome back"! I guess I should mention my antidepressant failed, rheumatologist decided he wasn't prescribing them anymore to anyone, and long story short, ended up putting myself into mental ward from a sudden panic attack. Did the Lyrica help cause it, I don't know. But being off it is a godsend.
