up 4 pounds in a week. But, I haven't had a bad headache since I started the Lyrica. This weight gain is the pits. I too have not noticed an increase in appetite, but I step on the scales in the morning and boom it's there. Why can't medicines just fix the headache without these stupid side effects. Strange thing though, I take 75 mg. in am and 75 at night. At night it makes me so sleepy I can't hold my eyes
open. During the day I am not sleepy at all. I was afraid the am dose would zonk me for the day, but not the case so far. I may have to up my dose though, because I am having a dull headache late in the afternoon. Almost as if it is really trying to break through the medicine's effects.
