You should not just stop taking them without a doctor's supervision. You will need to taper off of them, probably.
Those are not normal side effects of the drug. You must have contracted some type of virus. Hopefully it will pass soon.
You may or may not gain weight. Everyone is different.

I just found out that Neurontin is an anticonvulsant drug but I take it for nerve pain from sciatica
