    these two drugs have been the biggest help to me over the course of the two years i've been fighting fibro and cfs. i'm wondering if anyone is taking small doses of both and how they feel?? not sure if these two drugs would be contraindicated for each other or not, but it occured to me that they'd make an interesting combo for someone with pain, anxiety and sleep problems.

    HI....
    I Just heard of LYRICA this morning..I thought it was a NEW drug that just came out two months ago????

    I want to try it. It is supposed to stop the misfiring of the nerve/pain signals from the brain. And It is also supposed to help with the burning...ugh!

    What is Lexapro???
    Good luck..anykind of combo sounds good at this point.

    It seems as though they would work well together that is if the Lexapro gave you a little energy. The Lyrica is like Neurontin which can cause fatigue in some people like me. I take Neurontin with 10mgs. of Cortisol which helps me deal with the daytime tiredness.
    It's worth a try?
