Hello, yes this possible, Gabapentin (Neurontin). However some ways to minimize this are to make sure you eat protien, of some type, when taking this medication as to avoid a gastric dumping experience. Second, stand slowly from a sitting position so you do not fall. Another consideration is if you are taking too much at one dose, and not spreading them out during the daytime, ie: three times daily. Hope that this helps.
