To the original poster, Lyrica has been known to cause weight gain as a side effect in some people that take it, though it isn't usually prescribed for it. It is an anticonvulsant that is used to treat epilepsy, certain types of nerve pain, and some mood disorders.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes.

Swetha, does she take any medications regularly? Has she consulted her primary care doctor?
