I’ve been on gabapentin for two days and I am experiencing the worst vivid nightmares I’ve ever had I wake up and I’m not even awake I’m just in another dream almost having trouble distinguishing from being awake to the dream is anybody else experiencing this does it subside thank you
I feel for you. ! I was on gabapentin for six months . The nightmares were so vivid that it was like watching a horror movie.
I also gained roughly 20 pounds in six months . ( edema ). The nightmares and the weight maintained until i got off of it.
I was prescribed it as an antidepressant ( not for pain ).
That was my experience on it.
Oh. The weight and the dreams subsided in about six weeks ( once again... my experience on it ).
