I started taking Gabapentin about 2 months ago for a mild stroke. Every since taking this drug I have stomach cramps and flatulence like no one would believe.
Hello drsk, I haven't ever heard of ayone complaining of gas problems with this drug, but that doesn't exclude the fact the you are having it. It specifically is not listed as a side effect, but you could be developing a problem. Have you tried taking Gas-X or any other type of anti gas medication? I am going to give a the site to click on where you can read about the side effects etc... Maybe this will help you decide if you should talk to you doctor about your problem. My husband takes gabepentin, but he tends to be gassy anyway, so I can't use him as a comparison. I wish you the best...
