I've read a lot of bad experiences in the forum about Lyrica has anyone had good experiences with it?
I saw the Podiatrist today and he wants me to try it.

Wife was on it for 6 months, did a wonderful job with her fibryo problems. Then all of a sudden she started to gain weight, you could almost watch her expand from day to day. 30-40 lbs in a month, she had to come off it was driving her BP up to high.

And she had a horrible time getting off of it, side effects, withdrawls, etc.

Yes I saw the weight gain as one of the side effects.
