Lyrica, Gabapentin, and Topamax side effects of weight gain and brain fog from these anti-convulsants. I was prescribed these medications for diabetic neuropathy and for severe pain caused from Guillain-Barre (GBS) and conversion disorder. These drugs do help with pain management but I wish the doctors would have told me about the side effects. Also, many doctors didn’t believe me when I mentioned that Lyrica can cause weight gain. I gained 21 pounds the first month that I was on Lyrica. It was like I was given a large dose of steroids. I have researched this weight gain issue with many folks taking these meds. I am turning to holistic medications like CBD oil to manage pain.
