Lyrica has been known to cause weight gain, mostly through water retention. Can you reduce your consumption of sodium in your diet?
Diet and exercise is the usual suggestion. But you could also ask your doc for a medication to help with the weight gain... like Meridia or Xenical, or a stimulant.
If Lyrica isn't helpful for whatever indication you're prescribed, can you ask to switch to another drug?
