I didn't read this in any medical literature; just my personal experience with the drug. The effects of Lyrica are kinda weird. In low doses it's sedating, but in high doses (300mg+) it's stimulating, prosocial and pleasurable. My gut instinct and B.A. Psychology degree says it must be doing SOMETHING to enhance dopamine.
Could be wrong, though. :)
