What are the side effects of lyrica and warfarin?

I have just started taking Lyrica for arthritic pain and also Allegron for migraineous vertigo. I am also on warfarin for atrial fibrillation. How do these interact and what side effects can i expect. I feel that I am having slight involuntary movements in my hands. Would appreciate your opinion. Matty V.
