Can I Take Lyrica And Zoloft Together?

Zoloft been used for 4 years after nervous breakdown, all fine. After radiation therapy and many side effects, GP prescibed Lyrica to help me recover my taste for food and willingness to eat.(I had to be hospitalized at the end of the radiotherapy due to dehidration, resulting from about 3 weeks of less than a cupful of food/fluids per day that stayed inside).

Answer

They are listed by an online drug interactions checker as having a 'moderate' interaction with each other. This is because both depress central nervous system functioning and can make you drowsy, etc. Many drugs do this and this is not an uncommon interaction to see. Your doctor should be aware of this. Good luck with your recovery!
