I started taking Lyrica about a week ago and I'm extremely tired and very dizzy a lot. I'm just wondering if anyone who has taken this had these side effects also and if they get better. I feel like it's making me crave more food and I've already gained weight over time from other meds and I don't want to be on something that makes me gain more. I am trying to lose weight right now and get more healthy to help with all my issues. Can anyone tell me if this also gets better or if I should try something else ?
If you look up Lyrica on various med. sites, it will show that the side effects that you have are fairly common. I've been on it for a few years and have gained weight even though I've been dieting. I cannot lose a pound. I've been trying for two years. Anyway, I'm going to talk to my doctor about going off of the Lyrica and just taking the Neurontin.
