Why would my doctor prescribe gabapentin when my blood pressure is difficult to control? It's 100/150 at times. I was complaining to my Dr that my hands are becoming difficult to control; I drop & throw things. Very miserable not being able to hold a phone, etc.

I honestly can't say, since blood pressure elevations can be a side effect of it, as reported by the FDA.

Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant that can also be used to treat certain types of nerve pain and some mood disorders. Its other typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and weight gain.

What other medications do you take regularly? I wonder if one of them may be contributing to the issue with your hands.

Does gabapentin cause high blood pressure? My heart is pounding and my blood pressure is 155/72. Do I have to worry? I just started gabapentin two days ago for pain. It does help the pain. Thank you.

I think it does. My B/P was 122/78 on average before I started Gabapentin. Now, it always goes up to 140/90 during the day but falls to a normal range in the evening. I was prescribed Gabapentin for insomnia. 300mg at 5pm and 300mg at 10pm. It works great for sleeping, but I also have heart desease so I am worried over that.
