Have you taken any anti gas OTC remedys like Gas X or Beano? You may want to try, it usually breaks down the enzymes that the sugars (carbs) in your foods produce to stop the gas and bloating. I do like Beano because you take it before you eat so its kind of like a preventive measure.
I take Lyrica as well and Canyonbabe is right, it does have the risk of weight gain. My appetite has decreased dramatically in the past few months and I maybe eat half of what I used to however I have only lost 6 lbs which does not match with the decrease in food. Its a trade off though, I have peripheral neuropathy which is why I take the Lyrica and I would rather not have the pain even if it means that I am more susceptible to weight gain.
