Does anyone take Lyrica for anxiety? I have severe anxiety with Bipolar, and take quite a few medicines. I was prescribed Lyrica because everything was helping my Bipolar, but not enough for my anxiety. I take Klonapin, and I know it helps, but it doesn't calm my racing thoughts. My doctor doesn't want to give me too much of this though. I take 2.5mg per day total plus one more as needed per week (1mg tablets).

I started Lyrica two nights ago. My doctor told me to take Lyrica for the first 7 nights, then add it in the morning. I take 50mg. The early morning after I took it, I was awaken (naturally), and knew I needed to fall back asleep. So, I took a benadryl at 4, couldn't fall asleep, and a benadryl at 6, then slept till i normally get up at 7. I felt so paranoid all day with a little irritability, so I knew it was the benadryl. However, the second day (today), I felt the same sluggish feeling, so I have avoided any public contact in fear that I'm paranoid and possibly a threat with my irritability. I did make a phone call, but the clerk was nice, so I am assuming I might not be paranoid. I do feel weird though, and it's a paranoid feeling. Like things are happening for a reason, such as my friend getting mad, and they are happening a lot by "coincidence." I expected the clerk to be rude, cuz when I feel paranoid, I feel that people tend to be generally ruder. I feel that I'm paranoid when things happen because I expect them too. It's hard to explain.

I have had this paranoia, but I'm thinking that the Lyrica is making it worse. But does Lyrica work after one or two nights? I have read that it takes up to a week to build in one's system.

Please let me know if you recommend any other medicines based on my situation. If you want to know my whole story, please message me, since this is public.
