Brief Answer:
No specific group of medicines should be stopped

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for asking from HCM for your health related queries

As such there is no need to stop any medicine prior to impregnating a woman. Lyrica is Pregabaline and the drug has no effects as far as male in considered. Antidepressants in high doses may result in reduced libido and this may result in poor sexual desire but these drugs have no effects on sperms morphology or these drugs don't cause any significant side effects. So no need to worry.

Thanks, I hope this helps you. Please ask again if you have more doubts or questions to ask or clarify.
