Can neurontin cause low blood pressure?
Added 10 Sep 2010:
the next day i took only a half of a neurotin and have had no trouble so far. but i do believe it was to much and my body couldnt handle it. it also makes me not think straight.
If your blood pressure is that low, no matter what is causing it, you need to go to the doctor right now, especially if you get that reading more than once. Before going to a medical facility, try taking it while you are laying down and inactive. Then stand up and take it within 45 seconds. It is normal to start out with a normal blood pressure and have it drop slightly when you stand, but a drastic drop is a sign of something wrong, especially if it is that low on the first laying down reading. It can be caused by many different things, neurontin included. At least it did with me. I had to stop taking neurontin because of that and my blood pressure returned to normal after I stopped. At 80/50 I was admitted to the hospital because that is considered too low to be safe, though I had other medical problems too. I don't think that low blood pressure is a normal side effect with neurontin, but it does happen. Take yours a few times in the different ways I mentioned, but if you have a blood preesure below 60/50 you may be in some trouble and you don't want to take that kind of a chance. I would advise you to see someone immediately. I am not a doctor, but I do know from experience that that it is not good to have a pressure that low. God bless and keep you safe and well.
