Tramadol and Lyrica should only be taken together if your doctor prescribes them that way.  Even then, you'll need to watch for signs of central nervous system or respiratory depression. 

 

It sounds like you probably take a number of medications.  I'd suggest you go to the Drug Interaction Checker and enter all of the medications you take to check for possible interactions so you'll know what you should watch for.
