I have been taking Lyrica for approximately 5 weeks and have gained 13 lbs. Because of the weight gain I am now pre diabetic. I had taken Lyrica before and my weight went from 140 lbs to 173 pounds. As far as its effacy, I was taking it for fibromyalgia and yes it helped my pain, however, the weight gain isn't acceptable to me. I just had a visit with my Dr today and I am being weaned off of it. Do not just stop taking it. See your Dr about weaning off Lyrica or you must weigh the side effects before you start taking it.
