Yes: Both can cause confusion as a rare side effect.

Possibly: What you describe is more likely a Lyrica (pregabalin) side effect than a tramadol side effect. You should see the doctor who prescribed them to discuss what you are experiencing.

A 31-year-old female asked:

Can i take lyrica (pregabalin) and tramadol together?

Yes you can: If these were prescribed for you they may certainly be taken together as directed and at the dosages directed. Lyrica (pregabalin) is often used to treat pain of nervous system origin, neuropathic pain. Tramadol is an analgesic that has weak opioid properties combined with central effects making it a good choice as well.

FM (fibromyalgia): No single treatment is completely effective in controlling fm. Pharmacotherapy has produced mixed results in the management of fm. Nonpharmacologic treatments (e.g., cardiovascular fitness training, EMG biofeedback training) has produced significant improvement in objective and subjective measurements of pain in patients with fm. At the present time, there is no cure for fm.
