See below: Depakene (valproic acid) or Depakote and Lyrica (pregabalin) are both antiseizure medications. They have a different mechanism of action but both can work to calm down overactive nerves in both the brain, spinal cord and the nerves outside of the spinal cord.

Get back on Lyrica (pregabalin).: Lyrica (pregabalin) has been shown to be effective in treating fibromyalgia pain, but usual doses are 150 mg. Three times a day. Effexor is not shown to be effective but may improve your mood. Usual doses are around 300 mg. A day. It is pretty certain that 75 mg of Effexor will not be helpful for fibromyalgia pain. You must continue to take the Lyrica (pregabalin) to get benefit. ...Read more

Integrative approach: There are many pharmacological options for fibromyalgia but an integrative approach will be better long term. Integrative approach will address your lifestyle, nutrition, sleep and stressors of life. Incorporating an active lifestyle combined with healthy diet, mind and body therapy and lowest possible doses of medication is the way to go. Of course you need to work closely with a rheumatologist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is there a pill that can help with my neuropathy and anxiety at the same time. I've tried Neurontin and lyrica (pregabalin) didn't help?
It depends: It depends on what's causing your neuropathy. Sometimes older medications called "tricyclic antidepressants" can help both anxiety and neuropathy. New medications such as duloxitine and venlafaxine can also help. Finally, don't overlook behavioral techniques such as visualization exercises which can decrease pain sensitivity and also help anxiety. Hope this answer helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
