It helped but I gained an unholy amount of weight and never lost it, even after stopping.
I tried Lyrica when it first came out. Found out quickly that I am highly allergic to it. However, not the normal allergic reaction, rather it felt like someone had taken a razor blade and sliced through my eyeballs. I was rushed to the eye doctor as an emergency patient. That medicine was immediately put down as an, "allergic to" medication.
Years ago a doctor put me on calcium tablets, but because he didn't explain why I didn't bother taking them, wish I had now, if doctors took the time to tell us the reason behind their decision to give us certain medication I'm sure people would be a lot happier about taking it, at the time I didn't realise how bad things would become but the doctor knew what was likely to happen, how stupid that they don't warn us. These days I eat a lot of dairy stuff, and hopefully get my calcium that way. X
I can’t move without it. I was on a huge dose of gabapentin and then switched to lyrica 600mg. I didn’t even realize there was weight gain associated with it!! I’ve put on 30# and can’t lose it
