Weight gain on Lyrica

      I have been on Lyrica for about a year now, and have gained quite a bit of weight (which I did not need) as I have had a weight problem for some time. I was on Neurontin for about 3 years, and it worked great, and then suddenly I started back with the nerve pain, so I was then switched to Lyrica, 150 mg 3 X day, I also am on Daypro for osteoarthritis.
      Can someone tell me of another drug that you might be taking that does not have the weight gain side affects? I also, am on Paxil CR, but have been on that for a few years, and the weight gain came after I started the Lyrica.
