Damn, that Lyrica makes you hold onto weight

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

I am a little bit shocked at the effect being on Lyrica has had on my weight. I haven't really gained any, but damn, nothing is coming off. Asked Dr. Marx about it -- the mechanism by which it creates this weight phenomenon is not known. Her advice is keep doing what I'm doing -- keep the calories low and exercise. I've been keeping around 1,400 calories/day and burning 2,000 calories/week through exercise. Normally, I should be dropping weight like gangbusters, but good ol' Lyrica is keeping the pounds on. Not that I'm heavy -- I just want to keep in my current size of pants and 5 more pounds gone would make them much more comfortable.

I have to keep reminding myself how much better I feel. The calorie restriction and exercise is hard, but this is what I need to do to keep healthy. This is my life now.
