Norman, has he contacted the VA hospital and prescribing doctor about the problem, yet?

Gabapentin can cause these types of side effects in anywhere between 1 to 7% of the people that use it.

Since it sounds like they were pretty severe and caused him problems walking, its probably not the right medication for him, or it may be too high of a dosage.

I am a diabetic patient. I complained of pain in the body and hardened hand movements. Doctor prescribed Gabapentin USP 300 mg Capsules for night and 100mg capsules for the morning. I do not know for what reason did he prescribe this. Is it to reduce the sugar or as a pain killer?

Verwon Says:

P Mutukumarana, Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant that has also been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain. So, it is to treat the pain, not your Diabetes, though it can take several weeks to have its full effect in the body, to see if it will help you.

It may cause some side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and weight changes.

my doc prescribed ga apentin 300 mg and wants me to take it 1 at bed time for 5 days then two for five days and then 1 3 times daily. At first I had a panic attack then I've been feeling ok but I'm scared it will trigger another attack. So far I've had two since I started should I take as prescribed and up to 2 300mg tonight?
