Hi, I have been on 300mg of Lyrica twice a day for a relatively short period of time. In this short period of time, I have gained about 15-20 lbs. which for my frame (I like to be about 165-172 when Im in good shape) is a lot, and beyond that it seems to be concentrated in my stomach and giving me love handles which i've never had before and don't enjoy. I'm eating the same, have had no increase in appetite or change in diet and excercising the same (I am 30 yrs old,active and eat pretty well), so I feel like the Lyrica is the culprit. I do not plan on staying on it much longer as I am not seeing drastic benefits from it and I really don't enjoy the weight gain, as I have been pretty much the same size for the past 15 years so I know where my normal weight range lies. My main question is if anybody can give me and insight into their experience with loosing the gained weight after going off Lyrica. I have seen a lot of forums about Lyrica and weight gain and a lot of people distraught because of it (and i feel for them), but nobody really talking about their experience with weight after they stop taking it. I have seen the rare comment that people are unable to loose the weight even after stoping which scares me and prompted me to pose this question. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
