Hi, I just started Lyrica too. I'm on the 7th day. So far I've noticed an increase in appetite to the point of getting up in the middle of the night to eat a sandwich, chips and ice cream.
Don't need to add more weight so hoping this side effect will go away as the dosage increases. Dr. started me on 50 mg but said he will up the dosage very slowly since the first 4 nights I slept for 14 hours straight without rolling over and felt very hung over the entire next day but that's better than getting up to eat! I'm following the Topamax thread as an alternative if the Lyrica keeps putting on the weight. The sleeping so long and hung over feeling was gone by the 5th day and I've returned to a more normal sleep schedule if there is such a thing for me. No difference in pain level yet but I'm sure until the dosage is higher I won't see any.
