Lyrica Helpful Or Harmful?

Lyrica Helpful Or Harmful?

My neurologist wants to put me on Lyrica but i have heard pretty nasty things about it, and i dont want to gain wait. Im on tramadol now and have been on it for over a year so was looking into maybe taking the lyrica for my fibromyalgia pain instead of the tramadol. Does anyone have any good or bad experiences with lyrica that could share their opinion? I heard its got terrible withdrawl like a benzodiazepine.

I am afraid of it. I have fibro pain & neuropathy from shingles. Feel pretty desperate. I sure don’t want the weight gain.
