Taking 600 mg/day, down from 1800, but still have lots of excess weight. Has anyone experienced weight loss after stopping the drug?
Hi ramona. I have taken Cymbalta and Lyrica which are like Gabapentin. I am completely off Lyrica and almost at the end of my taper of Cymbalta and I have already started to lose the over 80 pounds that I gained while taking them. I no longer look and feel like I’m pregnant. I can now wear normal clothes; no more maternity clothes for me! I have talked to many people who have taken Gabapentin who have said that the weight came off so easily once they were completely off this medication. Don’t lose hope; your time will come. Congratulations on deciding to get off this medication. Personally I don’t think these drugs should be on the market. Please take care and I wish you the best. Cindy
