Gabapentin side effects
Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction to gabapentin: hives; fever; swollen glands; painful sores in or around your eyes or mouth; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Call your doctor at once if you have any new or worsening symptoms such as: mood or behavior changes, depression, anxiety, or if you feel agitated, hostile, restless, hyperactive (mentally or physically), or have thoughts about suicide or hurting yourself.
Call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects:
fever, chills, body aches, flu symptoms;
swelling of your ankles or feet;
rapid back and forth movement of your eyes;
Some side effects are more likely in children taking gabapentin. Contact your doctor if the child taking this medication has any of the following side effects:
changes in behavior;
trouble concentrating; or
acting restless, hostile, or aggressive.
Less serious gabapentin side effects may include:
dizziness, drowsiness, weakness, tired feeling;
lack of coordination;
nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, loss of appetite;
runny or stuffy nose, sore throat;
sleep problems (insomnia), unusual dreams; or

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Tell your doctor about any unusual or bothersome side effect. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.
