      Hi Dianne…

      I did a google search for “neurontin & side effects” and found a website that says that sensitivity to the sun is a potential side effect. It doesn’t go into detail about what the actual reaction is though. I take it to mean that you would burn easier while taking the drug.

      Is it possible that you had a reaction to the heat, the sunscreen you were wearing or a food that you ate? Maybe you’ve recently switched laundry detergents or fabric softner? Maybe you were itching because you were sweating while out in the sun & you didn’t shower before going to bed?

      I would look at environmental factors first before suspecting the Neurontin though.

      Hope you are feeling better now.
