Postby ames » Thu Jun 21, 2012 6:17 pm

hey every one, not been on as i've had a really nasty throat infection. Now on penicillin -

I am on my second week of gabapentin and am on it twice a day 300mgs-( due to go up to 3 a day next week)

Iexperiencing side effects :( still having slight dizzy spells - this is improving though

But I am hardly sleeping- also really bloated i look 5 months pregnant!!! I keep having hot flushes/ feeling clammy - its horrible!! the other is twitching - i had this before where my muscles twitch uncontrolably - but its increased ten fold......

Hi
They should start to ease of after a couple of weeks so you are almost there :fingerscrossed: it can take up to 4 weeks for the med to kick fully into your system so if you dont feel any better go back and let your gp know how you are feeling.

Hope you feel better soon. :hugs:

Hi Shazq
I too am on Gabapentin, 300mg. I was on 3 a day but had to cut to 2 as I was eating like it was going out of fashion, put on a stone in a month !!!!!!, could not stay awake and could not function at all. The worse bit was the dizzy spells, so bad that I checked my BP one day and it was really low, in fact I was admitted to hospital because of a bad costo attack and the Dr said it was dangerously low, so I cut them to 2 a day, now I take 1 before bed to help me sleep, they did nothing for the pain but I do at least get some sleep. Good luck with them hun, they are not for everyone but a lot of people get some positive relief from them x
