I experience severe hot flashes because I have metatastic breast cancer and can't take hormones. Got some gabapentin to help with the severe hot flashes and improve ability to sleep at night. First day: took 300mg at 9:00pm before bedtime. Immediately noticed a decrease in number and severity of hot flashes. At about 5:00am the followung morning, flashes stated ramping up again, so took another 300mg capsule. Again, flashes diminished noticeably. Today, however, noticed red, bumpy, slightly painful rash on both my calves. The rash is about 3 inches of red bumps, with a sort of yellow center running lengthwise down my calves.
Thanks for any help you can give.
