Happy New Year Dr. Acosta! One side effect of Lamictal and Lyrica, both, is weight gain. I’m taking both, and Synthroid). Also, I am 55 and going through menopause and now raising a teenage daughter practically on my own. when I go to the store, I do my best to buy healthy foods, yet cereal (because it’s $1.88) goes in the buggy. Over the last 3 1/2 years I gone through a separation and divorce, drastic weight loss and becoming super healthy, to gaining 30 pounds in one year’s time. (starting when the divorce was final). And now it’s hard to lose. Thank you for listening
