Re: can you take hydrocodone with lyrica

These 2 are commonly prescribed together. They are different type medications , Lyrica although referred to for pain it is not an opiod (narcotic pain med).

Re: can you take hydrocodone with lyrica

NP is right, there 'should not" be any problem interaction wise for you ,but as a simple precaution, since we do not know YOUR medical history or any other meds you are on as well, it would be a very good idea to double check this with your own pharm who simply knows what other meds you may be on or any specific issues that you may also have. i ALWAYS ask my pharm, not my doc, about any med questions since they are just supposed to know this stuff for us, and they usually do. if they don't know off the tops of their heads,they do have specific PC programs that WILL. hope this works for you. marcia

Re: can you take hydrocodone with lyrica

I agree with Feelbad...always ask your pharmacist about drug interactions. They've caught a few that my doctors have missed.

I personally have taken Hydrocodone with Lyrica in the past. I am currently taking hydrocodone with neurontin (another nerve medication like lyrica).

Re: can you take hydrocodone with lyrica

I currently take hydrocodone and Lyrica together. The only "interaction" between the two is that they cause added drowsiness and sedation.
