Depends on the case: Lyrica (pregabalin) is a great anti-neuropathic medicine. The weight gain is usually water retention as opposed to gaining fat. There are a number of other agents which may be helpful. Topamax typically does not cause weight gain. This should be determined by the treating physician.
