I know that lyrica has been talked about extensively on this site but I was wondering if anyone HAS NOT had the weight gain or increased appetite. I have been on for 3 weeks now and my dose will be 150 mg twice a day. I have not noticed increased appetite or weight gain yet. I can't afford to gain weight as I already am about 40 # overweight.
I feel the drug is working on the nerve pain I have.
After all I have read however I am on high alert for weight gain now. How good can his drug be if everyone is having weight gain around the middle? Weight gain around your middle leads to heart disease and diabetes and hypertension. So does that mean you take lyrica for the pain and risk taking more medications that may be caused from obesity from lyrica?
