Re: Lost Weight & Don't Know Why
when i started taking lyrica over a year ago, i too didnt gain weight. i was on 150mgs. three times a day. in fact, i lost weight. i lost around 10lbs. i think i lost the weight because of personal problems in my household, it was really bad. when i lose that much weight i look really awful and feel terrible. after about 6 or so months and things started to calm down, i started gaining the weight back and maintained my usual weight.
i have heard so many people say they gained a lot of weight on lyrica too. i was the only one, at that time, who wasnt gaining weight. i felt very fortunate. sadly, after 2 yrs., the lyrica wasnt working as well for me. i take savella with 1 lyrica per day now, with tramedol for break through pain.
i have gained weight recently from the meds i was on for depression and it came on fast. i gained 30 lbs. my family thinks i look better now than ever, but they dont live with the rolls. lol. with the help of my doctor, i came off of those meds. they didnt do a thing for me. i cannot get that weight off.
like Behappy, i think the medications react to different people, different ways. i have seen this in my own family
i hope you get to the three year mark also. i use to have crohns disease and ulcerative colitis. that was 10 years ago. but i do remember it well.
have a great day ladies!!!!
