Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • I gained 55-60lbs while on Lyrica. While I was able to, I walked and exercised and didn't lose 1lb. I eat less than my 82 yr old mother who weighs around 100lbs and also am retaining a LOT of water. I had to be put on 20mg of Lasix. I am trying to wean myself off of this drug. It works very well for nerve pain, but the side effects are atrocious!!!
