pregabalin (Lyrica) and gabapentin (Neurontin) for pain or seizures

You might see patient records showing a patient on BOTH pregabalin (Lyrica) and gabapentin (Neurontin) for pain or seizures.

This is an "irrational combination"...because pregabalin and gabapentin work very similarly, and are very closely related drugs.

But this combination happens. Sometimes it's an oversight when one drug was supposed to be stopped and the other started.
