What else can I take? Have tried Neurontin (gabapentin) and now pregabalin... weight gain incredible. So unhappy!
Sorry to hear about your weight gain. These particular drugs have an issue with that. I have been taking Lyrica since 2008 (100mg -125mg a day). My weight is 111lbs. at this point - prior to that I was usually (6) pounds less. Be careful what you eat and how much. Make sure that you exercise also! What do you take these drugs for and the dosage, if I may ask?
My Rheumatologist prescribed Lyrica for fibromyalgia & nerve pain. Lyrica helps with tight muscles & is considered a better drug then gabapentin, but of course much more expensive!
