I hope this will help someone else too. I quite Lyrica not because I wanted to, because it did help nerve pain,
But in the process it also had 2 side effects I can not put up with. One is weight gain, for myself 20 to 30 lbs.
Also can cause unusual ways of thinking.
I've actually caught myself after making a strange response to ? Or worse yet, just saying something off the wall..
I figure and hope by dropping the weight I won't hurt quite so bad, either way I don't want to be crazy lady for some pill.
I don't deny anyone that lyrica works for them, just wanted to voice my own testimonie.
Please I'm no way encouraging anyone to stop, but, ask your close family members or friends if they notice.
a change in your thinking pattern.
My own Sister, bless her heart said to me after talking to her about something simple, she said "that was a weird thing to say".
I love my Sis. And trust her with all my heart.
This is one family member I haven't talked to about Fibromyalgia.
Thanks for letting me share.
