For those who take Lyrica, my Doc prescribed it for me because I have severe arthritis in my knees.I could not find relief at night at all. I also have a sleeping problem, started at menopause. I am taking my Lyrica (50 mg) with a 30 mg dose of Dalmane at night only. In the morning, I take a 50 mg tablet of Citolapram (generic Celexa) for depression and anxiety.

I have noticed swelling in my hands only. I do NOT need a problem with weight gain because Citolapram may cause weight gain too. Am I being over medicated for anxiety because Lyrica is supposed to help that too?
