I've been taking lyrica for several months now. I'm concerned about my weight gain. I take the lyrica twice a day along with Rebif. I'm afraid to cut back on the lyrica but I am stressed by the weight gain. any suggestions?

Hey Madlou

I've never used Lyrica before, but did a search on it and weigh gain and here are some links to what i found. It does seem that weight gain is a side effect of Lyrica. I wouldn't cut the doseage back at all without first talking to u'r doc, but that may be a solution. U'r doc may also have other meds u could try that wouldn't carry the same side effects such as weight gain. I hope this helps and u'r able to get some help from u'r doc on this.
