Default Weight Gain

I took Lyrica for a brief time. While it did help with nerve pain due to shingles I did put on weight around my midriff in what seemed like overnight. I have always been on the thin side Never have had a weight problem. I have been off the Lyrica for over a month and still I continue to gain weight. I have heard of similar experiences from other Lyrica users.

Have you any idea how long after stopping the drug, I can expect to start losing the weight. I have been taking it for nearly a year to control seisures associated with ms. The weight gain is one problem, the other is the awful 'episodes' I have where I feel I am losing control of my body for a few seconds. I feel nauseous and have a strange taste in my mouth and an odd smell in my nostrils. I am considering stopping taking the drug to see what effect that has as it may be preferable to this - I feel like a stale whale!
