I have caudi equina condition and suffer a lot of pinch nerves.
Yes, you can use both medications together as I have been on both of them for several years. I was taking Gabapentin for Neuropathy & Hot Flashes. But I also have Fibromyalgia & since I am on a high dose of Gabapentin & it did Not help with it.
My Dr. went ahead & put me on Lyrica for the Fibromyalgia which helped out alot.
The two medications are Very similar but are not completely the same. So definitely see what your Dr. advises you on.
Take care, Kathy
