Have this problem I am lucky if I sleep 2 hours but my pain has gone away I don't now what to do put up with the pain or wet the bed my doctor said wetting the bed will subside gradually. I have taken to wearing depends to bed but it makes me feel so humiliated.i am only 54 years old and feel like I am reverting back to childhood by wetting the bed. Please I would love to talk to anyone else who has had this side effect. Loretta
I've never heard of this as a side effect. It would be difficult to deal with. My first thought was that you might be sleeping deeper and longer, but when reading more that the "headline" of your post, it doesn't appear so. I take a very small dose of Nortriptyline (25 mg once a day) and it has alleviated most of the many side effects of Gabapentin for me. I wonder if it would help you. (I learned about this "trick" for the side effects from someone else who posted here, when I first stumbled onto the site.) -- Wishing you the best.
I took this drug for seizures as it didn't help but I also wet the bed while on it! I didnt take it but for 2 weeks because I was having more seizures while on it. But, when I read your post I just had to answer it because I'm 38 and couldn't believe I wet the bed when it happened to me too!!
