Lyrica benefits vs. side effects?

Personally, I have had minimal side effects to Lyrica. I take 150 mg 3x a day.

Weight Gain is a known side effect IF you allow it to be. You might retain some fluid but.... Some say it increases there appetite. I have lost 90+ lbs taking Lyrica.

For most, there is a body adjustment period for most meds. Most who gain permanent weight while taking Lyrica are simply over eating and as I was are in denial. It is easy to gain weight after a Injury due to inactivity but being a potato chip couch eater is a choice. LOL

You can lose weight and be disabled. I have lost 90 lbs on Weight Watchers and I am disabled. Discipline and believing in yourself is the key. Health is a big factor for losing weight.

Congratulations on your weight loss. I have been up/down my entire life. Since my injuries/surgeries I have gained about 45lbs. I have been trying to watch my food intake lately along with making better food choices. I must say though, with pain round the clock, learning to manage pain is hard enough for me for now. I used to treadmill 5 days a week and felt great, so I know that moving will help me feel better, give me energy...it is always the 1st step that is the hardest! thanks & keep up the good work!! (I would be happy right now to just lose the 40-45 i gained)
Live, Laugh, Love ~
