Have been having 'neuropathic pain' in my right side under ribs for almost five years so many different drugs and tests nothing shows.
I haven't taken Lexapro or Lyrica myself but you may find the reviews in the link below useful. 3 days is still very early ... you need to give it more time. If you think you are feeling very depressed then please see your doctor.
There is also potential for a drug interaction between these medicine. Please be aware of the symptoms.
I can only speak for the Lexapro brand name. It did up my anxiety for a bit but started to work within 2 weeks for depression and anxiety. It is suppose to be one of the faster acting antidepressants. I was also on 5 mg but have currently been upped to 10 mg. I did not know it was prescribed for pain. But if it works... great!
Hope you feel better soon, give it some time.
