lyrica

do you gain weight on lyrica because lyrica increases your appetite?

Re: lyrica

I did gain a little after starting Lyrica but I was recovering from knee surgery at the time. I did not notice an increased appitite at all. I have been on it since 2007 and am back down to size 14. I know for some that might be big but for me it is the norm at 5'9". I would rather be a little heavier than to deal with the pain and fear of losing another job due to too many sick days from flares. And a little excersise doesn't hurt. I am one who swears by my Lyrica...lol
Low pain day...

Re: lyrica

I gained about 30 lbs after going on it, but I wasn't watching what I was eating. I have now lost about 20 of it and hope to lose the last 10.
