Pregabalin Weight Gain

Pregabalin Weight Gain

Ive gone down from 600mg to 75mg once a day . Small dosage but can it still contribute to weight gain ?

Hi FirbroFace (love the name haa haa). Did you have any relief being on such a high dose? What was the reason you went back to a small dosage. I am only on 50 mg of lyrica per day for one month and have already put on weight, quite noticeably around the waist. It scares me when I have to increase to 75mg per day that I will put on even more weight.

Hope you can get to see some of weight fall off, but I've heard its hard to shift.

@karencassey thanks baha . I was on a high dose for the pain but i had a complete dip in mental health to the point i was suicidal so my doctor cut my dose by three quarters and the comedown was horrendous . Everyones experience is different but jt just doesnt work well mentally for me. Just try to eat the best you possibly can . I know its hard xx

I have found I high protein diet with occasional carbs! Almost zero fried foods, no corn syrup of any kind, no gluten, and making myself walk 12,000 to 15,000 steps per day! Many the inflammation disease specialist Rheumatologist I saw Tuesday added R.A. To the long list of diagnosis that is being sorted through
