I started taking Lyrica 3 months ago and outside of weight gain it has worked great. Since I started taking Lyrica my blood pressure has gone way up. Does anyone know if there is any correlation or is this just a coincidence?
Actually Lyrica is known to cause hypotension (low blood pressure). Could there be any other reason for increased blood pressure?
I have been on Lyrica for 3 months now. Yes, my BP went from 20 years of 115/74. For the last 3 months it has been 150/74? Same thing. My MD has me coming in to check it again in 2 weeks. It doesn't say Lyrica causes High BP. But, it is the only thing I have changed? So, since it IS working for pain, I am questioning the cause, also. Good Luck to us both,
