Is there anything I can do about this?
Hi emshick, sorry no one has answered your question yet. It's Fathers Day & things tend to get a little slow on Holidays around here! I just checked out all the side effects for patient & professionals ,plus my husband has been taking it at 1200mg for years. I see no such side effect nor does my husband concur,. That does not mean you are not having a reaction & you should discuss this with your doctor tomorrow. If you feel any swelling of the throat or chest where you are having trouble breathing or swallowing do not wait. Go to the ER ASAP!This would be a severe reaction. Do you mind me asking what you are on neurontin for as 300mg is a small starting dose? This is usally increased gradually, but if you are having problems, they could give you a different med such as Lyrica. I would suggest you go to the "Drugs A to Z" at the top of the page & thoroughly read about neurotin. Just clik it & click letterr N. neurontin is usually listed right there as it is a frequently used drug. That's how I looked it up for the side effects. This may help you decide if you want to continue or if you may have other side effects you did not realize. Hope this has been helpful...
I don't have any facts to back this up but I would not doubt it a bit that Neurontin could be causing this. I have heard it cause many things and anytime you are scrambling nerves (which is what Neurontin does) you don't know what might happen. I had a terrible time finding words when I was on it - the word would be on the tip of my tongue but I would have to describe it - just couldn't get it out. You are on a very low dose of Neurontin so there is an easy way to find out if it is causing your symptoms: stop taking it for a couple of days and see of your senses come back. Now I don't know why you are on it, so be sure to check with your doctor to see if it is ok to stop for a bit. Take care -
