I just had my dose of gabapentin increased. I have been experiencing diarrhea.
I have been on gabapentin for nerve pain for 2 months. It was gradually increased and I am now on 3- 300 ml. 3 times a day. I have diarrhea daily... no pain from it or discomfort. just lose stools.. It concerns me. Other than that I have no side affects. Should I be concerned?
I have read up on the side effects of Gabapentin so I was prepared for a small problem. Since day one, I have had chronic diarrhea and general weakness. Spend most of the time in bed. This is only day 4 but it is certainly not good. According to different sources, it seems to be quite common with gabapentin but I don't think that it's good for medication to have this effect. Sympathy to everyone who is having problems.
