Are there ways not to be mentally impacted by a new medicine that makes you emotional?


I started a new medicine. Lyrica. I suddenly am crying (I almost never cry), having my feelings hurt easily, feeling scatterbrained, and just generally being more emotional and less rational than I am use to. The medicine is working though, and when I called the doc they said I would need to talk to them about it at my next appointment (4 weeks from now). So is there anything that can be done to stop the side effects of a medicine impacting you emotionally?

    Thanks, Taking for Fibro, Gaba never worked, but didn't make me feel like this either. They moved me up to this because it was suppose to be more effective than Gaba.

    Thank you. My pamphlet said depression, but I guess I didn't expect this. Thanks!
