Bipolar and medication Lyrica

I have BP secondary to seizures.  I am hypo-manic.  I am 78 years old.  
Last fall I was put on Lyrica for diabetic neuropathy.  I built up to 200 mg daily and when
I hit that point I became REALLY manic.  I was taken down to 100 mg daily and things got
better but about three months later, still on 100mg. Lyrica I had a major hallucinatory
attack.  I had never had one before.  Quit Lyrica.
Has any of this happened to any of you?

I hate to say this, but I have never heard such a thing. I take Lyrica for my fibromyalgia. At one point I was on 450 mg and never had a psychotic break. I'm not saying that it couldn't happen. Everyone is different. Good Luck and I hope they find out what is wrong.


God Bless
