Is Lyrica As Bad As Gabapentin In Gaining Weight?

Is Lyrica As Bad As Gabapentin In Gaining Weight?

In the last 6 months I've gained 50 lbs on lyrica. And the worse part is I'm eating less and not doing anything that would cause me to gain. But I'd rather be a lil chubby than in pain. Lyrica has helped me with that.

Yes, I gained 50 lbs taking lyrica. But we got a puppy last year and I lost it all by chasing her around and playing with her. Bless you Daisy. Lol. I still take Lyrica because it helps so much with my nerve pain. Good luck to you!
