    Yes. I was prescribed both meds at the same time. I take the Lyrica at night and Cymbalta during the day. It may just take a little time to adjust.

    Hi katopya. I've been taking Lyrica and Cymbalta together for a few years now. Are you taking them at night before going to bed? I find doing that, I sleep better at night and then during the days I've found my pain medication works better. If I go off of one or the other for a few days, the pain during the day increases. If you aren't taking them before bed, talk with your doctor and ask him about doing it. I could see why adding the two to the pain meds during the day would make you feel loopy. I also take Neurontin 300 mg one at bedtime and one in the morning and am on Ultram ER, one in the AM. I hope some of what I said helps and you get a handle on the pain without being loopy ... no fun.
