Hello and thank you for sending your question.

Gabapentin and Lyrica are medications which are typically used to treat different types of pain - and more commonly neuropathic pain. Depending on the patient and the general cause of the pain these medications can be very effective.

The reason why both of these medications are not recommended for use at the same time is because significant central nervous system depression can occur in that combination. This can cause significant sedation and can be very XXXXXXX For that reason it is not recommended to combine both of these medications.

Thanks again for sending your question. Let me know if you have any additional specific concerns.
