Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,
Lyrica can affect the blood sugar levels in two ways;
1) A direct effect of Lyrica on glucose metabolism which raises the blood sugar.
2) A increase in the body weight which may increase insulin resistance and raise blood sugar levels.
I would not make any changes at this time until you hemoglobin a1c is measured again.
