Neurontin (gabapentin) is prescribed to help any nerve problems such as numbness or tingling or neuropathy that causes very bad chronic pain, like stinging and stabbing pains. So, I just can't imagine that your Neurontin would cause the tingling.
Perhaps the prednisone is the culprit?
You may want to call your doc if this tingling is very annoying or becomes painful. ARE your hands painful? Also, how long have you been taking prednisone?
If you answer my queries you may garner more answers to your question, making it easier for other members. Also, if you provide the diagnosis your doctor gave you it would be ever so helpful.
Best wishes to you,
Also be aware that blood sugars rise when one takes prednisone. If you have been prediabetic, or don't know, you may now be experiencing effects of diabetes. There are many medications that raise blood sugars. Hopefully you are having regular blood tests. A comp will give your blood sugar as they check how you are doing on the prednisone. Did you start at 40mg or so? Gabapentin, as said by others, helps with nerve pain. I have medication induced diabetes from prednisone and also have neuropathy. It helps the tingling and it helps with any nerve pain. It also increased my blood sugars. Check with the doctor.
