i'm taking 375 mg lyrica daily for persistent spasmodic leg pain, in addition to having received 3 spinal epidural injections over last 3 months. getting significant relief, 50-60%. i'm suffering from additional side effects, including occasional vision blurring, speech difficulty and confusion, but the rapid weight gain is what really concerns me. tried wellbutrin for about a monrh, didn't help at all, and had significant side effects of its own which for me made it intolerable. any advice?
Was put on Gabapentin for accute sciatica in January and suffered from terrible side effects: put on 10kg + horrendous brain fog :-( Nothing seemed to help until I discovered the MR! Lost over 12kg in 4 weeks and was able to stop that dreadful drug! Get in touch if you would like more info! :-)
