Lyrica withdrawal

I have been taking Lyrica for a couple of years and had no idea it was the reason for my weight gain.  Has anybody withdrawn from it without side affects?

Hi Jo
I tapered quickly off of Lyrica and did have very bad withdrawals.  I would suggest you do a very slow taper.  We aren't allowed to give taper advice on this forum as everyone is different.
Just reduce your dose gradually over a period of time and it will minimize the withdrawals.
How much are you taking?  Can you discuss this with your doctor?
