Hi all, hope everyones as well as can be x
This is my dilemma, I am currently on 450mg Pregabalin daily and the weight gain issue seems to pop up frequently. I am, going by my legs, stick thin, but according to my waist and abdomen this is sooo not the case!! From what I read that this is down to water retention caused by the drug. I eat healthily, don't drink and have chocolate on special occasions, mmmmm chocolate!! Anyway I have heard about people stopping taking Pregabalin as a result. I have asked my GP on more than one occasion if there was an alternative to it but apparently not. I have started to reduce my intake to 300mg a day to see how I get on. I've only been doing it for 5days but I have noticed a significant increase in pain. I know it's drastic and I'm not sure if it's worth it but I really am at a loss of what to do. I'm, 47, post menopausal, which I know has altered my body shape but this is different.
If anyone can give me some advice, I would be sooo grateful.
Thanks for reading my prob, Karen x
