I've moved you post into here Katie, as we've got a board about weight issues. It's something that seems to affect a lot of us, but we're not sure why :? :? A lot of the meds we take have weight gain as a side effect, plus it's difficult for us to be as active as we once were thanks to FM :tongueout: :tongueout: And as you've already said, with depression there's quite often comfort eating :facepalm: :facepalm:

How long have you been on the gabbas?? Is it a recently started med or have you been taking it for a while??

This linky has got info about the meds used for FM If you don't feel the gabbas are helping then see if there is anything else that your GP thinks might help.

Some meds can take quite a few weeks to properly get into your system and up to the right level before you start to feel their effects. From what I gather with what has been said on here, gabbas are one of those types of meds.

Pregabalin is a similar med to gabbas, and some FM-ers have found that if one of them doesn't suit them, the other one can be more effective.

Hi
I was put on Gaba`s by my neuro doc for migraines, i craved sweet things all the time and i also got depressed about it as was eating everything in my path, i piled on 2 1/2 stone :shock: it didnt help that it was over xmas and all the [chocolate] sweets were around and the extra snacks :facepalm:
They did not help with my migraines or fibro pain so was more than happy to stop them, the cravings have now stopped :clap: :clap: :clap: and i am slowly loosing some weight :clap: :clap:

Tbh i dont think there is much you can do while you are on the meds, the best advice i can give is try to snack on healthy things if you can. :goodluck1:
