Lyrica & high blood pressure

Can Lyrica 25mg 2X/day started 10/31/12 cause high blood pressure?  My blood pressure is normally about 117/78; when I went to MD this week it was 160/90!  I also have been taking Cymbalta for several years but it hasn't affected my BP
I am on multiple meds for fibro; Gerd; extrinic asthma; chronic rhinitis hypothyroidism (TSH nl) Metoclopramide, etc.

One other new med is Vagifem
Thx

You should discuss this with your prescribing doctor.
Vagifem is NOT recommended when you have HBP!
Why don't you ask him if you could take a natural/herbal HRT  instead.
Vagifem is associated with increased risk for cancer.
It is possible that it is interacting with some other medication you are on to
increase your blood pressure. It is impossible to verify drug interactions after
4-5 different meds, as the  chemical combinations are enormous!
Hope this helps.
