I have been recently prescribed neurontin. While im on it whenever i look one direction to fast, or move to quickly i get a strange sensation. Im not sure how to describe it, its not quite pain but is realy strange. I was wondering what about the medicine is causing this, and what would it be called?

I had this happen when I first started Neurontin as well, the good news, it does wear off after awhile. It is basically just a vertigo type thing, I also got it when I stood up too fast. It just isn't causing you a straight out dizziness.
