I know that some on this board have taken Lyrica. I have been on it for about three weeks. I began to feel better and had more energy than usual. I am taking this in combo with Cymbalta. I am starting to feel really anxious and having some weird thoughts. I guess sort of a manic feeling??? I guess you would say I feel wired. I feel like I could conquer the world and have energy to burn. I have not been normal for so long I do not remember what that feels like. Maybe this is the way I am supposed to feel. I hope the ones that have taken Lyrica will respond and let me know if this is not the way I should feel and if you think that the medication also made you act funny. I seem to be a lot more bold. Say things I would never say to anybody.
