Mg dose today and it scared me how angry and edgy I felt. Developed red rash across face and chest felt heavy. Got in bed and waited for feeling to end. Gave me more of a headache and did nothing for joints. Has anyone else had an adverse reaction like this?
It sounds as though you are having a serious reaction to the Neurontin(gabapentin). Discontinue use until you can call your doctor. I encourage you to read the information about Neurontin provided by drugs.com at the following link:
I hope you feel better soon.
I felt very angry on gabapentin. It was prescribed for headache/eye pain and fibromyalgia, but it made me edgy and I had trouble finding words. It did nothing for my trigger point pains which have taken over 80% of my body. I'm also a Fragile X gene carrier and I have learned from my own children the polypharmica isn't well tolerated by the Fragile X brain.
