I had a severe allergic reaction to gabapentin several years ago, you know hives, face, lips, tongue, throat swelling and difficulty breathing. Haven't taken it since. I was given Lyrica by my PCP yesterday and ended up (via ambulance) in the ER with anaphylaxis. It was mentioned that these two medications were related. Is this true?? I don't remember much about what happened yesterday but, I guess it was pretty bad. I'd like to know if there are other similar medications out there that so that I can avoid them?? If anyone can help me out with this I'd really appreciate it
Thank you
