Hello all! I am new to this site, and as of tomorrow I am new to gabapentin. I am quite worried, how and when do I take it? What are the side effects, at least most common? What does it do? I know it helps with pain, and i have alot of that. But I am also bipolar. Is this going to help?

By the way, does it help with loosing weight? I need to loose 30lbs or more thanks to all the other drugs i take for bipolar. When you speak of withdrawls and new side effects, can you elaborate on what those symptoms may be?

Well, I have been on Gabapentin since last thursday, i had a very slight headache for friday and sat and part of sunday, not a bad one though, so far all I feel is stoned, more energy and in a better mood, i find i can tolerate my kids tamtrums much better and im not so short or sarcastic anymore, although in the evening i feel kinda dizzy and lightheaded. Hope its not all in my head (lol no pun intended) Thank you all for being so helpful, cheers......and good health to you all!! =) Oh yea, this stuff is great for pain, its unbelievable. Finally, thank God some relief.
