Pregabalin - side effects

Postby macca » Tue Jan 15, 2013 8:08 pm

Hi all, I was talking to the mrs earlier and she said something that surprised me.

She was talking with a friend of ous who is a pharmacist and discussing pregabalin and its lovely side effects. My wife is conscious of putting weight on and our friend told her that weight gain is common on this med along with .......

Developing curly hair :shock:

Really? Anyone found that ?

Having suffered the curse of dead straight hair all my life I would so love this to be true, but just weight gain and all the other nice things so far.......

People with poker straight hair: stop rubbing it in. I don't want to know :-p. I wouldn't care if my hair was curly or straight if it would just definitively pick one! Seriously though, have never heard that although weight gain is a notorious side effect of pregabalin.

Hi macca

Think someone was pulling your leg with the curly hair one :lol: :lol:

Weight gain is a listed side affect though. :( as is many of the meds given to us for fibro. :(
