Hello dear..
I have gone through your post in which you have mentioned that you are taking Cipralex, Effexor & Lyrica....and experiencing terrible dizzy spells.
First of all...dizziness can be caused by any of these 3 medications...& the severity can be due to the combined effects of all these 3 medications..
But if your doctor is sure that your symptoms are not due to the medications, then better get your blood pressure & sugar levels checked...any abnormality in their values can also cause dizziness.
If everything is normal...then it will be better to consult your Doctor & try for any other combination of medications which suits your profile.
Wishing you good health
Thanks & take care.
