It could be one of the rare side effects of gabapentin, maybe if its too bothersome? Please ask your doc to prescribe some alternate med.

Take care, best wishes!

I agree with Rajive - headache is one of the side effects of Gabapentin.
If it bothers you all the time - ask your doctor to put you on a different medication.

Good luck.
