... that doesn't have so many side effects?? I've taken, or am taking, just about everything listed for it, currently weaning off Lyrica, because of the blurring vision and weight gain. Although the company would love you to believe the weight gain is your fault, I started gaining weight really fast, and with absolutely no change - or increase - in my diet
What other meds have you tried? I took elevil neurontin trileptal topamax lyrica and I agree why can't they leave the I can help your pain but I will make you gain weight by doing it part. Topamax is the only one I took that made me loose weight but the other side effects were awful. That was just me it could make someone else gain weight . Good Luck on your search I share your frustration. I don't know if this was any help I am sorry I did not have more to offer.
"that doesn't have so many side effects" look at any drugs side effects. and i mean any prescription med... my biggest problem with drug companies is the 1000% profit they get... for most pills it costs a few cents to make a pill but theres a brain cancer pill that costs about 200 for a pill
