What can I take as a substitute for lyrica (pregabalin) without the problem of weight gain ?

In brief: Hard to say

Sometimes it is a question of dose rather than the medicine itself causing weight gain.
I would look at this first then consider alternatives, especially if Lyrica (pregabalin) works for you already. Otherwise some medicine like Cymbalta may be helpful.
