Hello, have you told your doctor that the medicine is not helping you with your anxiety. I'am on Effexor ER 150mg and it is working awesome for my anxiety I was on 75mg but it wasnt helping so we moved me up and its been helping alot. I have a Question though why does he have you on Lyrica, I'am on lyrica 100mg 3x aday for my nerve pain. Lyrica is a nerve pain medicine and its also used as an antiseizer medicine. Ask your doc. to see if he can put you on another medicine for your anxiety cause that other one is not working and find out why he has you on Lyrica ( but I'm sure he has you on it for some good reason). Well I hope this helps out alittle, there are quite a few drugs out there for anxiety but you just need to find the right one for you.
Have a good day, Nikki
