Like many, I was put on Lyrica back last November or December at 300mgs a day (150mg 2x). The medication (for me) did wonders on taking my nerve pain down from a solid 8+ to between 2 - 6 ( I say that depending on what area of my body). An improvement that gave me my day to day life back. Night and day for sure!!!
Okay, with that said. I gained in the neighborhood of 45+ pounds! I'm sure some of that was thanks to my reduced activity as well after surgery. Anyway, to the good news, I officially now lost 20 of those pounds!!! Eating a bit more healthy, a bit more exercise now. I gained it over months and months, but looks like between my diet, exercise and maybe my metabolism finally caught up? The weight is slowly coming off. I'm not into fad or yo-yo diets. I just wanted to share that the weight (with patience) can and does come off!! Thanks for listening.
