Hi, Lilyflower. The other day I was telling my daughter that I thought it was strange that my sister-in-law was experiencing weight gain and water retention from Lyrica. She reminded me that I did too when I was on it a few years ago. I had forgotten that the area under my eyes got extremely puffy. (I knew there was a reason I didn't like it!)
Strange, because now I'm on Neurontin, which is very similar, and it doesn't do that to me. I guess those few different molecules or whatever make a big difference.
Bloating is so uncomfortable. I deal with that some, too. But with the aid of Citrucel and Miralax every day, I'm now usually "good to go!" :)
