if gabapentin and lyrica r almost the same.do u gain pounds on gabapentin???
Oddly enough, I didn't gain on Lyrica, but my ankles were so swollen it appeared to look as if I'd contracted Elephantitis of the Cankles! But no weight gain, besides the water (edema) build up in my oh so lovely 'cankles'!
Gapaentin actually did cause me to gain a few pounds, and I'm currently titrating off of it, not only some weight gain, but I was stuttering and had to search for words, when I normally had a vast vocabulary. No vocab on Gabapentin, just sort of a 'duhhhhhhh' feeling for me, but that does NOT mean you'll have any of those side effects! I also believe I was on a very high dose of it, way too much! If your doc keeps you on a dose that helps your pain, but doesn't cause horrid side effects then you shall be one lucky woman : )
Best wishes to you, Gena,
p.s. Do you have fibromyalgia, IF you don't mind me asking that question?
