Things to consider - how long have you taken the medication, what exactly do you take it for, what other medications do you take (prescriptiion & OTC).
A drug's side effects may diminish or vanish completely over time. A person's age may enter into the overall picture and,as always, a second opinion never hurt.

I'm sorry to hear of the ill effects of this medication. If you have not done so, Pleasse discuss this with your Primary Care Physician. You might also talk to your pharmacist regarding these effects,possible problems because of other medications you take. There are so many contributing factors it is adviseable to consult those who know the possible problems.

I wish you good luck and GOD blessings.

I've had some short term memory loss. My wife calls it selective memory. I have attributed it to age (well over 70).

terrible headaches with this stuff. I prefer Lyrica, although I think Lyrica decreased my sex drive and ability to have hard erections. Now that I'm off Lyrica, my sex drive has increased. Not sure if Gabapentin is causing it to increase, or I just naturally have a higher sex drive.

I am taking 3000mgs a day. I have graduated from 300 about a year ago. Memory loss is a major concern, medium to severe at times. I am 63, I have seen neurologist as well as primary care DR. No hope just idiopathic diagnosis and take a ton of gabapentin only. I have been diagnosed with small nerve degeneration, affecting feet and weekness from knees down. without meds pain was intolerable.

Yes i take it for the same thing RLS and it works the difference i take the liquid and you must take it at the same time each day or you'll have pain so with that saying I don't have pain and it really works because i take it the same time each day so try the liquid and take it on time

I take Gabapentin 300 mg once at bedtime and sometimes 600 mg if I am having more pain than usual. It does help me sleep with less nerve pain in my feet and my left leg (sciatica). I also have restless leg syndrome and I'm not sure if it helps with that or not since I also take something else for the restless leg syndrome. Anyway, the gabapentin has caused me to gain about 10 pounds and I do have more sadness even though I take an antidepressant. The doctors say I also have fibromyalgia. I've been on the gabapentin for about a year and half. I may transition to Lyrica at the doctor's suggestion. He thinks it's better than gabapentin as far as having less side effects.

This is exactly what happened to me. I was sick with respiratory problems for months. I felt weakness, fatigue, feverish, etc... It was horrible.
It wasn't till later, and after research that I finally found d articles related to this medication and respiratory issues. The doctors could not figure it out (surprise, surprise) until I brought up the articles.
