Gabapentin Breast Tenderness

Updated
Amam Says:

I've been taking this drug for three weeks at 100 mg once a day, nightly. My breasts are so tender and they look like they are twice their normal size. Could it be the gabapentin? How long will it take to get out of my system?

It has been known to cause breast enlargement, according to FDA reports, along with nausea, dizziness, mood swings and weight gain. I think it only stands to reason that such enlargement would also cause them to become sore.

However, I am not a doctor and it's always best to have things checked out to be sure.

Are you on any other medications?
