Neurontin side effects.

September 6, 2007 at 4:36 am

I have been on 5400mg of Neurontin daily for three years. I have gained fifty pounds and holding. I could blame it on my diabetes type 1 so not sure where it came from. Sometimes it makes me sleepy but not often. Then again there are times that I can’t hold my eyes open and just fall asleep for no reason. For sure it gives me gas but I live in my room and seldom go out so it offends no one. I once cut back to 900mg a day for a month but the pain was horrendous so I’ll never experiment again. I thank God for Neurontin. My residuals constantly fluctuate but my diabetic neuropathies surely contribute. Wish there was a pill for that. I almost consider my GBS next to nothing when compared to diabetes. Would like to find someone else with Juvenile Diabetes Type 1 and GBS just to compare notes. Good luck finding what will help you for the rest of your life.
